    Software update 2020.48.26.x update, font size problems

    Reading fine fonts is not required for driving, and no one should have to use the readers to see an essential information like remaining range and gear selection

    Navigant: GM Cruise, Waymo Lead Tesla And Others On Full Autonomy

    Agree. Tesla haters (or paid by haters) need to drive a Tesla today to get a first hand experience on autonomous driving better than wasting time on power point presentations. No one outside of Mobileye employees has driven a car powered by their new system so until then no one knows how good it...

    X: What's your 90%?

    My 90% is 254 miles. My 100% is 281 miles. I have 42,000 miles on the car. This is a drop from 261 and 290 when I had 17,000 miles on it 18 months ago.

    Does smart preconditioning work?

    My wife had her MS 100D for 7 weeks now and she turned the smart preconditioning on since her schedule is fixed. The car doesn’t seem to learn her schedule (8-4 weekdays) yet and I wonder if we are missing something here. Thanks in advance.

    What happened to the Energy Saving option?

    Vampire drain was never an issue for me and I never paid attention to it especially with 100 kWh battery. The only time I turned the energy saving on was when I left my X at the airport for ten days, and it turned out that I didn’t have to.

    What happened to the Energy Saving option?

    My wife’s new Model S doesn’t have the Energy Saving with always connected option. It runs the same software (2018.48.12) as my 2017 Model X which has it. It takes forever to wake up the S from the app whereas it is instant with the X. Is there any work around to keep it connected?

    Thoughts about v9.0 Quick Controls screen

    Creep is what came to my mind and I remember playing with it for a while when I first got the car. But I can think of Chill mode, Range mode, FWD height, energy/distance display and Navigate on Autopilot settings to be frequently used and nice to have a shortcut for it.

    Thoughts about v9.0 Quick Controls screen

    Quick Controls screen is one of my favorite UI that came with v9.0. It would be great though if Tesla enables us to customize it and add options to the bottom of the screen below the screen brightness(see attached picture). I personally like to switch between day and night modes, some people...

    Software Update 2018.42.x

    I agree. I’m very impressed in the ability of NoA to navigate complex intersections. One example is going from I75 south to I94 east in Downtown Detroit. It is hidden behind a curve, the right lane becomes the I94 west only and the next lane continues south and I94 east ramp takes off from it...

    v9 Heated Steering Wheel WITHOUT turning A/C on!

    Agree. Volvo for example, when you press the seat icon a pop-up window appears and you can select the heated steering wheel as you can see in the picture. I hope Tesla updates their UI one day to include something similar because the way it is now is a bit retarded.

    Cadillac SuperCruise Tops Tesla in Consumer Reports' Test

    Supercruise is only available at some freeways. The nearest freeways to GM tech center are I-696 and I-75 and both are under construction so they are unavailable for SuperCruise and will be unavailable after the construction is finished since GM will have to get out and re-map them again and...

    Software Update 2018.39.7 9736c9b

    Agree, Heated seats and steering wheel function should separate from climate.. it should be accessible from the seat icon at the bottom of the screen like in Volvo cars as you can see in the picture.

    Accessing steering wheel heater problem

    With the new v9 every time I need to turn on/off steerig wheel heater I have to turn on the climate to access the button. This is very inconvenient because in the winter I try to keep the climate off as much as possible and turn on the seat and steering wheel heaters to improve the range (per...

    I noticed turning off Obstacle-Aware Acceleration makes the car accelerate better behind a stopped traffic.

    Software Update 2018.39.6 8377b4d

    I always kept the navigation app open (maybe for the looks) so this new UI didn’t bother me. But I don’t see the justification of keeping it open permanently especially with Tesla moving towards FSD. What benefits does the driver get from starring at the navigation if the car is driving...

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    I was hoping v9.0 will enable us to display remaining range in miles and percentage simultaneously in the IC. We may have to wait for v10 for that one. I guess it is more complicated than I thought.

    Why there can never be a "Tesla Killer" car

    Completely agree. The automotive companies will be hemorrhaging money if they build both EV and ICE vehicles. This is maybe why Toyota is staying out of the EV market so they don’t have to advertise against their own profitable cars!

    Software Update 2018.28.1 7d0461c

    Downloaded it today. I didn’t notice much of a difference in the behavior of AP on the freeway, although it navigated a tough intersection in my neighborhood for the first time.

    How do you use the fob to start the show?

    2018.26 3bbd9fd .-

    I got 2018.26 half way through a long road trip. I felt noticeable improvement in ACC. Now it is much smoother and confident when it approaches slower traffic. Nag intervals didn’t change but it never bothered me. AS is the same.

    Merry X-Mas not working in 2018.24.1

    Same here. Central display crashes right after opening the window and the show stops. I’m not sure if it happened with 24.1 or the earlier versions since I haven’t tested it in a while.

    Software Update 2018.21.9 75bdbc11

    I used to display range before but now I’m more comfortable with the percentage. It is a personal preference for sure but how about being able to display both at the same time? I hope Tesla would include that with v9.0
  26. Sambas

    Software Update 2018.21.9 75bdbc11

    I second that. It seems like this alert is designed for the passengers and not for the driver who is activating/deactivating AP.

    Any tips for map zoom-out without loosing tracking?

    I know, but that is an extra step to bring the buttons to view and they are on the far side if the screen.

    Any tips for map zoom-out without loosing tracking?

    Every time I try pinch to zoom out I lose tracking on the map, almost 9 out of 10 attempts. And when I hit the map tracking icon it takes me back to the original zoom level. It is very frustrating and I wonder why they don’t implement the two finger tap to zoom out like any other tablet and...

    Supercharger — Auburn Hills, Michigan

    For the first time in more than 3 months, there are workers at the site. They told me the hold up was due to the utility company and now that is over. They expect it to open soon but they didn't provide more details. I was in a hurry I didn't take pictures.

    Falcon Wing Doors Opening By Themselves

    I’ve been driving with no key cover for a while now with no issues. But if I’m in the driver seat and have the key in my pocket and tried to reach to the backseat to grab something or tried to get the last piece of mail through the window without leaving the car I could potentially cause the FWD...

    Falcon Wing Doors Opening By Themselves

    Tesla SC called me today. According to the data they collected from my MX they concluded that the door was opened by the key. They asked me if I use a key cover and I told them I use the topfit silicone. According to Tesla, the tightly fit key cover may partially press the buttons and make it...

    Falcon Wing Doors Opening By Themselves

    It is a possibility for sure. The first time it happened I was getting in the car when the FWD open so yes it could have been pressed between my body and the seat, and could have happened when I was shopping too although I don't have a recollection of bumping into anything. Though I can't...

    Falcon Wing Doors Opening By Themselves

    I'm located in Michigan and yes it is very cold. I haven't experience this problem when it was warm here. In regards to the FWD, I haven't used neither one of them in more than a week or two since it is only me and my wife now.

    Falcon Wing Doors Opening By Themselves

    Tesla called me the next day I reported the incidence on this forum, apparently they are monitoring what is written here which is great:). I have been told they are going to run some remote diagnostics and get back to me. I'll keep you updated to what they will find.
  39. Sambas

    Falcon Wing Doors Opening By Themselves

    Well it happened again. I’m with my wife at Home Depot, spent half an hour there and came out to see my FWD fully open. WTF!...... I’m not sure how long it was open for but thank god the snow has stopped. It was quite a scene for all the falks in the parking lot... It is a major security flaw...

    How do Tesla cameras self clean?

    Actually clean rear camera is not only required for FSD but also for the enhanced autopilot. According to Tesla’s EAP description, the car self-park when near a parking spot and be summoned to and from your garage. Well, the should add weather permitting!
  42. Sambas

    Falcon Wing Doors Opening By Themselves

    I’m not sure it is this simple. The first incident happened with the passive entry off and the second one with it on. I think it has something to do with the software or the cold weather ;)

    Falcon Wing Doors Opening By Themselves

    You are not alone. It happened to me twice. The first time (software:17.50.2) the passenger side FWD opened by itself when I was entering the car, the key was in my pocket and I thought maybe,maybe the button got pressed twice as I’m entering. The second time (software:17.50.3) I’m in the drive...

    I hope this is not the case. I’m not sure how to get back to Michigan if I have to leave it here. They don’t have a loaner.

    Model X Winter Driving Experience

    I’m on a road trip in Pennsylvania so I parked my MX outside. Now one of the FWD doesn’t stay closed as if the latch is frozen/broken. The car is undrivable and being towed to the service center. This is going to disrupt my vacation big time.

    2017.50.2 screwed up lane changing.

    Chill mode is essential for winter driving so I have it on since the snow started falling here in Michigan. Now you mentioned that, today I’ll compare lane changing with and without chill mode.
  47. Sambas

    2017.50.2 screwed up lane changing.

    I understand it is personal preference and I probably don’t mind it much if I were the only one in the car. But if I have passengers with me it surprises them every time I make lane change.
