    Various energy consumers demystified

    I appreciate your detailed work on energy consumption, excellent and very helpful. Can you maybe also do some research on energy used on driving (which is what I assume the car shows in kWh used or Wh per km vs energy drawn used during charging? I suspect the consumption per km/mile is what...

    Proposed Model 3 Reservation Process Solutions

    You forget that Tesla has stores in Asia, Europe etc. Their solution must include rules for those as well. Many best guess is that they will all start taking reservations at the same time, which will be the middle of the night in some places.

    Possible New Feature for a Future Versions of the Key Fob

    I'm speculating here, but it could be that the original posters settings are so that it is extremely hard for the tall person to get into the seat in the first place (I haven't tried but I think it is hard to switch the driver profile while still not seated). The solution could indeed be that...

    Tesla's Software To-Do List

    Mercedes E-Class has a feature (for the station wagon, or T model) where you can open the trunk by kicking your foot sort of underneath the car (Keyless option required, and you have to have the key on you). Very handy when you have both hands full. I believe it uses the camera to detect the...

    Can someone explain the Autopilot "Learning" algorithm?

    Paul, thanks for the link, an excellent article. But it doesn't mention how Tesla is supposedly creating super precise maps based on Autopilot plus human corrections. There have been numerous references to this, and how the Tesla supposedly improved how it masters certain routes based on...

    Can someone explain the Autopilot "Learning" algorithm?

    I've read many times that Autopilot learns as we drive, that Tesla is creating an ultra-precision map based on the cars' experiences on the road. Sounds very convincing and logical. But I still have no clue how that learning process is supposed to work in detail, in particular what kind of...

    The AP Lane Keeping Bias to the Right is Not Safe, please fix this Elon!

    Can you take a video, especially of the moment the curb/barrier starts and the car moves to the right? Could be an eye-opener for the tesla engineers! Also, I believe Tesla can download data from the car and analyze what the car saw and did if you give them the exact time and place, I'm sure...

    v7.1 Feature MISSING?!

    I have a German P85D with Autopilot, updated to 7.1, and the updated app that mentions Summon in the alert settings. But I can't find the Summons page shown in this post. Where is it? What could be missing for it to appear?

    When Owners Will Choose Battery Swap

    To me battery swap meant "unlimited warranty" for the battery. Imagine you're unhappy / uncertain about your battery, just go and swap it for another one! Even after the 8 year warranty period I would guess. If if they don't introduce Battery Swap in a large scale, that means the reassurance...

    TACC failed to brake at stop, nearly accident.

    Distronic wouldn't brake in thinks situation, I think TACC is designed the same I have no actual experience with TACC, but lots of years with Mercedes' Distronic. Distronic will ill not react to vehicles that it hasn't seen moving, and Mercedes communicates that very clearly. In other words...

    Red floor mats? Where Can I buy them?

    try meinefussmatten.de in Munich, Germany. (You may need the help of a native speaker, there are lots of options and the process is a bit convoluted. But their prices seem very reasonable ...)

    TACC does not work very well on curvy roads :(

    My Tesla will only arrive later this month, so my TACC experience is limited to the test drive. But it I do have > 12 years of experience with Mercedes Distronic, which has the same overall functionality. What at I can tell you is that there are situations in which TACC cannot work as you...
