    Dashcam Flash Drive Repeatedly Disconnecting

    UPDATE: Tesla Service advised that this is a known issue, and they are working on a firmware update to fix it. Related, Elon also tweeted about the problem, saying a firmware fix will be coming "soon™".

    Dashcam Flash Drive Repeatedly Disconnecting

    Tried the MicroSD with high-speed USB adapter, but it gave a notification to "Remove and re-insert USB drive for faster speed". I did exactly as it said, but it just gave the same message again. I left it alone to see if it would still work, but it didn't even try to record any sentry events...

    Navigation is annoying

    I do still want an audio cue when I'm getting close to my exit, so my eyes aren't taken off the road as often. Also: So even visually, this is still a problem.

    Navigation is annoying

    After a few days of driving around in my new M3LR, the only significant complaint I have so far is about the navigation. Not so much about it sending me on weird routes, although that has happened a couple of times too, but moreso that when driving down the highway for more than a few miles, it...

    Dashcam Flash Drive Repeatedly Disconnecting

    I'm having the same issue in my brand-new M3, I got an ultra-fast 1TB USB stick, but the connectivity keeps dropping-out whenever the car tries to record a sentry event. Weirdly, the included Tesla USB drive seems to have no problems, but 128GB isn't big enough for my use. I also got a SanDisk...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Just wanted to give an update, that I took delivery yesterday. My car did indeed have the Matrix headlights (those things are so cool!), and my wife & I enjoyed playing with a bunch of the features last night, and today. Already ran a few errands, like grocery shopping, etc. I want to thank...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    HOLY COW IT'S HAPPENING I got an unexpected text from my SA, telling me my VIN has been assigned!! 🤩 I had to check the app in disbelief...I really didn't expect the 5/7 early EDD to be for real, I fully expected it to change to July - August again. But there it was: a real, actual VIN! I...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I think with a large enough drive/card, it should be perfectly fine to use the same drive/card for both security/dashcam footage, as well as music, movies, and other media. Though having separate storage for video footage vs entertainment may be a good idea for organization, and also if you...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Reading data does not induce any wear on the SD card. Only writing data causes wear. Durability is purely determined by the card itself, not the USB adapter. Also, it appears that the way I initially thought Sentry Mode recording should work, is in fact how it does work. From the M3 manual...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Well, shoot. I wish I'd known this info before I bought a 1TB MicroSD, designed for performance (as opposed to write endurance). I thought it would only start overwriting old video once the consumed storage space reached a certain threshold or something. I didn't know it was hard-set to only...

    Especially zombies. All those gas-guzzling short-sellers are just the worst. 🧟‍♂️

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Almost 100% likely that someone refused delivery, or canceled their order, so you were assigned their cancelation. I'm hoping for the same to happen to me. 🤞

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    My wife is at Disney Land right now too, sending me photos of food, characters, etc. So jealous that I couldn't go with her (started new job recently, so couldn't get the PTO). 😂

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Randomly checked the app again today, and to my surprise there is another EDD update! Once again a short two-week window, and once again no VIN. Having gone through this song & dance once before, I reached out to my SA, who said they don't see anything in the inventory matching my...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I did a lot of that too, but admittedly it was when I had an EDD much closer than it is now...so now I have a bunch of accessories that'll be arriving months before the car does, lol 🤷‍♂️

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I called Tesla sales to get more info about my delivery date changes, and about the whole Mobile Connector and Matrix headlight issues. Basically, the scheduling system "jumped the gun", and gave me the early date prematurely. There was a cancelation that it thought it could match me to, but...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    LR AWD, Black-on-Black, 19" wheels, FSD Original order date: 4/26, starting EDD was July - October this year. Next day, 4/27, EDD updated to May 1st - May 14th. No VIN. Today, 5/2, EDD updated again, now showing July 31st - September 11th. Tesla is being a tease, just wanted to get my hopes...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yeah, I don't see anywhere to modify my order. I'm gonna try to contact their Sales, to see if I can get on a waiting list for the mobile connector, but I imagine I'm just gonna have to keep checking every now & then to see if it ever comes back in stock.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Wow, thanks for all the detailed info! Yes, I plan to use the scheduling to precondition before my work commute. Neat idea about only using seat heating, rather than warming the whole cabin! As for the charging, it looks like on a given night, I can get about 30 miles of range per hour, for...

    Extremely helpful info, thanks so much! 😄

    Cool, thanks for the explanation! If I could give you a "like" I would, but I'm just trying out free membership for now. 😅

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Not sure what "MSM" is short for, but I ordered black ext., black int., 19" wheels, and included the FSD. 🙂

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    After drooling over Teslas for six or seven years, I finally placed an order for a M3 LR AWD this past Tuesday (the 26th). Estimated delivery at the time was between July - October this year, matching what a sales rep had advised me over the phone. Checking the app the very next day, the...
