    Supercharger - Santa Barbara, CA (LIVE 4 Oct 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    Some of the plant stores in Carpinteria are really pungent:-)

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    I've not had any trouble with the lines at Goleta, I get out of my car and talk to those in front of me and those that come behind us. I don't really want to do that but it works, we all know where we are.

    Supercharger - Montecito, CA (Rosewood Miramar, LIVE 4 Sep 2021, 8 urban stalls)

    Got it, thank you. For whatever reason my car never pulls more than 90kW at any station. Anyway, I'd not heard of an urban charger, now I know.

    Supercharger - Montecito, CA (Rosewood Miramar, LIVE 4 Sep 2021, 8 urban stalls)

    I saw this was on my map yesterday, long time coming. I've not seen them yet, why are they called urban stalls?

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    Yesterday was the first time i've seen a real line. There was a Tesla employee there, or a guy with a Tesla shirt and hat on anyway, i assume directing traffic. Maybe go park somewhere and I'll tell you when it's your turn. There isn't really a place to line up without blocking traffic, and...

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    My real hope is that it's a Rivian build:) I was going to go have a look at the Santa Barbara build, there are 16 going in about five or six miles from here, and see what the conduits look like. They are going pretty fast, and I've been gone for a week, might be too late. If I were the stores...

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    I looked at it tonight, I can't imagine it's not a Tesla build. Six would be odd, but if you look at it, it looks like it might be 12, six on each side back to back. 12 would make sense, three cabinets to run it. No Tesla equipment to be found anywhere yet, though. @MarcoRP it sure looks...

    It is 16. Permit started out 24, but we’ll take what we can get.

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    Sooooooo................anyone know what all the digging is about in front of this? Green fenced area, deep holes, long trench, L x W about the same as what's already there. Just asking. I heard about it, saw it tonight, looks really familiar but no equipment around except a couple of...

    Supercharger - Santa Barbara, CA (LIVE 4 Oct 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    With the fence up you can't really see it, but there is a trench along the back, right alongside the freeway offramp, likely where at least most of the stations will go.

    Supercharger - Santa Barbara, CA (LIVE 4 Oct 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    You can change the title on this one. I didn't have my phone with me, I'll get a picture tomorrow, but the green fencing is up, digging is started. Nothing to really see except missing pavement at this point.

    Was it originally 24 spaces? New plan does that really mean anything in your experience? Does it go through the permit process again? Sorry for all the questions:-)

    I'm doing the upgrade next week, but I don't know what you mean. Can you elaborate?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    It's not. I'm glad to hear your review of the MCU2, I'm going to do it too. Just curious, is there a way to tell if you have the 8GB or 64GB card? My MCU failed about a year ago, I got a new one, probably refurbished, I got a free 4G upgrade with it. That MCU is now failing in the same way the...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Good for you, keep it. I love 993's. All mine are air cooled too, newest is 1988. I let a 993TT get away from me, but there are who knows how many cars that you can say that about. The worst for me was the 64 911, but I had a GTO Judge 455 with ram air, you pulled a switch on the dash, 1969...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Hmmmm. I think that is right:) I see there is a FlatSix911 lurking here. @FlatSix911 my first car was a 1964 911, s/n 152. I was 15, bought it with paper route money. I had a big paper route:-) I couldn't really afford it, it was rusty, and I ended up parting it out. This was a very long...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    It's the only car I have that has the antenna for it. I have three old Porsches, one is an investment that I've driven once in, wow, time flies, 20 years, and the other two I hardly even use the radio, I like listening to the engine:-) i have a BMW that I'd have to put another radio in, that's...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Thanks for that, I didn't know where that was. I never use FM or Sirius in that car. I use Sirius in rentals, and I've noticed that on the channels I listen to you start to hear the same things a few times. I live in Santa Barbara, CA, and I drove to Bozeman MT via Zion and Yosemite, on one...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    XM funny story, I had never tried it in my car, and one day i turned it on. It had it. I couldn't believe it. I thought maybe the previous owner had it and forgot about it or whatever. I used it all weekend. Monday it was gone. Turns out if I picked a free Siruis weekend to try it...........

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    When you say infotainment page, where is that? Here is what it says about Premium Connectivity under details for my car, in my Tesla account. Specs Premium Connectivity, Free Unlimited Upgrades Premium Connectivity Free Unlimited This is all by messaging, I did say that I had that, and asked...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Basically what costs what. What I've been told by the SC is that I'll lose the premium connectivity that I have now and have to pay for it, I don't see the logic there, and that I do have to pay for the Sirius/FM upgrade for the MCU 2. The say that it's not over the air, it's hardware. The do...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I have FM/SXM now, but I've been reading that's a $500 add on to the MCU2. I have the free streaming service, I asked about that, too. I emailed service about it, no answer yet. I meant browser, it's basically useless.
  29. 8

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Okay, I've decided that I believe whatever you say:) So if i change to MCU2 do the radio upgrade at the same time. Does the MCU2 perform as well in older cars as well as it does in newer ones? I dropped my car off for service, and I got a MCU2 car as a loaner. In my car, the Internet is...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Does anyone know if the radio and SXM is hardware in the MCU2 or if it can be added over the air later? I have the streaming, and that's all I ever use, but I wouldn't mind the SXM option.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Easy. Confusion. The fix for my MCU1 was to replace it, this was +- a year ago, I assume it had the newer chip. I'm again having the exact same problem, still under warranty. So how do they fix it? Another MCU1? I've not seen or heard a reliable answer on that.
  32. 8

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    And if there is a recall? Price change has to be anticipating that. If they are forced to do a recall, what do you think they are going to do with current MCU1's? Fix them? How? I think this is a great car, I thought so when I bought it and I bought stock after I bought the car, so I'm...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    When my first MCU gave out they said my car wasn't one they could do yet, I would have paid the $2500. They gave me a MCU2 car as a loaner, i was sold. So now i have another bad one, I assume, the car is doing exactly the same thing. It will be interesting to see what they say this time. I'm...

    Thanks for that, but it does not explain how anyone knows what they will do if I go in for a MCU replacement post NTSB comments..

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Source? I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'd just like to know with what certainty you know that, how anyone knows that. The possible recall I think changes the equation.
  37. 8

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    SC said the car is identical to a 2015. My MCU is maybe a year old. Research, that's why I'm here. It would be helpful when you are sitting on your high horse if you cited a source for your answer. Otherwise it's no better than a guess.

    I have a late 2014 S, November, it is the same thing as a 2015. I have I assume first gen autopilot. I have an appointment with the service center and I know form the last time that they are going to be replacing the MCU again. Same problems as before. I'm under warranty. If they replace it...

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    For whatever reason I don't think it ever accurately reports what is there. There are three or four stations that have either never worked or have not for the last few months, I have never seen an accurate reporting of how many stations are open based on me sitting here and checking. I have...

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    I thought at one time I saw a full house, but at least two of the stations have been down for a long time. Yesterday was the first time I saw a line, it was a mess. Farmers market was there, so everyone driving through the parking lot had to go past the chargers, at least one of them. You...

    2016 MX 90D AP1 - Upgrade to MCU2?

    My car went in for something else, the MCU was a total surprise. It was out of the car when they told me. I seriously would have hung on for a while, even then the MCU was on backorder. I actually thought they might put a 2 in then, but the SC told me tit wasn't an option. I figured it would...

    2016 MX 90D AP1 - Upgrade to MCU2?

    I have a 2014 S. The MCU was replaced under warranty four months ago, the upgrade was not an option. I really tried. I did get the LTE upgrade. In my car, the browser might as well not be there, even with wifi. Service center says that's the way it is. I very rarely have more than one bar...

    Posts about locals charging at Superchargers: complain here! :-)

    Why would you take them to be mostly local cars? Do S and X's not travel, or tend to travel less than 3's? My S has been on LA chargers in populous LA areas, I was on the road, navigation said I needed to stop there. I would suspect that most locals don't want anything to do with lines, i...

    Posts about locals charging at Superchargers: complain here! :-)

    Sooooo. I'm guessing that you have a problem with S and X owners getting and using free Supercharging:) Number of stalls available as shown on the app and in the car is still random, at least in my experience. My car said seven available tonight, there was one car there. When I left I was...

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    Friday night there was a young guy giving away avocados to people at the charger, he was promoting his app. Short version is it had to do with figuring out home consumption cost, and I don't charge at home, so I wasn't a good candidate. Turns out i know someone who is, and I really liked the...
