    Premium Connectivity for new MYLR

    So you bring up teslawaze on the screen? Not your phone? Do you / can you log in to your waze account and get favorites and such? If so, I'll have to give that a try.

    1st MY just Ordered. Have some Question/will take some advice.

    I had the SC I wanted to use place the order, but that's after the fact now for you. And I would have just waited until you had to take the plunge or the tax credit was for certain (whichever occurred first) I'm in central NJ and my 240V/50A run almost 2K (including permits). I used a local...

    Auto high beam behavior

    No. As above, I'll sometimes turn it off but that is local traffic and it seems to be acting the same as I would if I were trying to keep the highs on all the time. Without oncoming traffic, it doesn't flip due to street lights or anything.

    Anyone regret buying the Acceleration Boost for their Model Y?

    if we don't hear from you in a couple months, we'll bring flowers to the graveside

    Anyone regret buying the Acceleration Boost for their Model Y?

    No such luck. Might be OK. Put in a 2K entry into quicken in Jan so the overall 'net worth' reported by quicken won't be changing much (~132 tax). And am lining up my rationale (excuse?). Didn't ask/tell because I know you wouldn't like it but would say OK and feel bad. So I spared the angst.

    Charging near Glacier NP?

    Go slow on Going-To-The-Sun? I wouldn't even do the drive. I left my fate in the hands of someone else and took one of those '34(?) red busses.

    Charging near Glacier NP?

    It's been almost 20 years since I was there but I think we stopped at McDonald lodge and had a great lunch. So if you can charge there, sounds like a good place to stop.

    Yakima Full Tilt 5

    @yourhero is right. It is a safety issue to prevent it (or a trailer) from sliding out). My ridgeback has two holes and a pin instead of that spring pin. It also has a shorter 'depth' spec. On the second hole my 2" adapter is just a bit further in than your first photo. I think the other...

    Anyone regret buying the Acceleration Boost for their Model Y?

    I would never hide something like this from my wife. But hey if she doesn't look at quicken, it's not my fault.

    Yakima Ridgeback 2 Bike Rack

    I've had the 4-bike version of that for years on my Subaru and now on my MY. Works OK and you can actually get the pin in. I had a wheel based rack on my 2003 camry roof. Subaru was too tall and I wasn't about to stick a roof rack on the MY Hanging by the frame doesn't bother me. Got...

    Tesla app activation?

    not sure if it was when I signed the acceptance but I know I had it on the drive home paired with the phone. I've never actually driven with the key card.

    New tow hitch cover

    I here I just cut off most of the clips (not sure if down to 4) and stashed it in one of the wheel well areas. That pop hitch looks nice but too ambitious for my lazy butt.

    Any after market for Hitch Cover Plate?

    I'd buy one in a heartbeat if it was truly easy to use. But I'll admit I've just sat back and waited for someone to do the log work. One interesting thing about Tesla is that with all this tech, their communications are truly I think the whole hitch design was kind of poor. I can get the pin...

    Any after market for Hitch Cover Plate?

    I think mine has been sitting in one of the wheel well cavities for 2 or 3 weeks. I do like the looks better with it on but not enough to muck with it. I've clipped about 1/2 the clips and it's easier but still annoys me.

    Tesla MY haters on the highways

    Maybe not. I thought vehicles behind me were super close the first few months I had my MY. I started tuning on the rear camera and found they were a lot further back than they appeared through the mirror / slit rear window. Try it and count the number of white stripes they are behind you...

    I can’t believe that I rely on 360 camera views this much!

    I was pretty nonchalant when I curbed my front left wheel. Surprised me a bit that my stomach didn't churn. I guess I'm just getting older. Then my wife did it 3 or 4 days later. I haven't even taken a sharpie to it yet and I did it over a month ago.

    Huh? I have a 2019 Camry Hybrid and the only thing it has is the backup camera. Something I need to enable?

    Side wheel well covers or inserts

    I'm OK for most of the groceries. I had a couple of these GSC Technologies 11 in. x 13 in. x 13 in. Black Milk Crate-MC131311-002 - The Home Depot that I moved from the Subaru to the MY when I got it. They are zip-tied together. It's the milk and juice bottles. I don't bag them as I think...

    Model Y/3 Pedestrian Speaker retrofit - now available for certain vehicles

    my wife's Camry hybrid is just as quiet when start out on the electric only. If I'm careful, I can get about 2 miles before the gas kicks in

    Side wheel well covers or inserts

    I'm talking about those recess wells in the back where things fall in to. Anyone know of covers or fitted containers for those areas? It would be nice to at least have a cover so stuff didn't fall in like a gallon of milk did recently to me.

    Does the Model Y need this grill?

    I wouldn't say mine snapped in but it did seem like they would stay in place without the tape. None the less, I used the tape. It's not like I plan to take them off ever.

    I just added a standard range Model Y to my garage to join my long range Model Y. Range thoughts...

    Agreed. I don't understand the hostility to wanting to know how many miles to empty. I also think about charging in miles per hour. Don't see anything wrong with that at all. I don't care about watts. I care about putting 50 miles (or whatever) more in to the car. I don't want to travel a...

    from your signature line it's your wife's car not yours. So what's the problem?

    Auto Windshield Wipers

    I use the button until it's raining enough to be tedious and then use the voice command. Occasionally use the touch screen. It isn't that bad as there is the quick link at the bottom.

    AM radio. On various two lane roads in Oregon, assign will read if lights flashing there’s a warning

    How does anything get integrated? By design of course. If your question is more of how would EM get an AM in to a Tesla while using off the shelf chips (because if not off the shelf, he could of course spec it) then why integrate it in to an IC? No one cares about integration. They care...

    AM radio. On various two lane roads in Oregon, assign will read if lights flashing there’s a warning

    that is not quite true. You can make a fox hole radio pretty darn cheap. Yes, for real. I did it as a kid. Enhance it with a diode replacing the pencil lead and razor blade plus a bit of say 40ga wire wrapped around a tp roll for a coil (for tuning). Connect earphones and you're all set. I'm...

    Tesla only vehicle

    What's the RDX worth? Would it be worthwhile to get rid of that (for the money) and get something used that has a history of reliability and cheap? Maybe a Civic, Corolla, Camry. What's the insurance there? That's why I'm getting rid of the outback. It's good (better than the MY) for...

    Tesla only vehicle

    t'ain't much room in the area if you plan on dangling on inside with cover on. And then you have to figure out how to get the stupid hitch cover off as your pry tools are inside as well.

    Tesla only vehicle

    I guess you could keep your first born in the frunk. That has an emergency release. Don't know if it's mechanical, but pretty stupid if it's not. Or in the rear hatch. We know there is a mechanical release on the doors. I'm just thinking the frunk probably has better sound...

    New tow hitch cover

    There was one solution that I really like involving a cabinet pull and some magnets. I'd link it here but can't find it. I did have a watch on that thread but in this new forum can't find the list of my watched threads. Anyone know how to get to your watched thread list?

    Auto Windshield Wipers

    I have the opposite problem. They wipe too fast and stay on wiping a clear window long after the rain has stopped. I often turn them off at that point and use the left stalk button if necessary until that annoys me and I turn them back on. Also find the slowest intermittent is too fast when...

    Music Playlists figured out, kind of.....

    I create lists on my computer and use SyncThing (android only I think) to keep stuff in sync. Sounds like it works about the same as the OP. Syncthing is open source. I can rearrange on the phone but that is too hard with my pudgy fingers. So I just maintain on the PC. Oh, I use Poweramp...

    Does the Model Y need this grill?

    I finally installed mine today. I did use the tape but they fit so well, I don't think you need the tape. I certainly didn't want any damn green skittle down there. Blue? Maybe. But green. Yuck.

    Tesla only vehicle

    To post a counter view, you can in fact get stuck for days. I had a tire valve go bad and flatted. Didn't know if I could use a regular core or not (my first car with TPMS). Mobile service didn't know. Took mobile service 3 or 4 days to get to my house. They did not have a spare tire. Do...

    Model Y speed contol

    I was coming the opposite direction of the road mentioned above today. I rarely go in that direction. I got numerous phantom brakes but the most interesting was the speed limit was wrong. MY had 40 but that section has never been 40 in the almost 50 years I've traveled that road. A couple...

    Model Y app help, please. My Tesla app works well, except it shows my address as the next door neighbor???

    The app thinks I live in a weed field. Doesn't bother me. Just live it. The mirrors fold/unfold at the right spot. I'm content.

    Double-charged by Tesla?

    Actually if they did claim a software glitch that does make them liable. In my former life I had a small software company and always had to have liability insurance. Doesn't matter whether tesla bought it or built it.

    Model Y speed contol

    mine occasionally does that. I regularly travel a road that goes 45->40->35->45->35. Mine rarely adjusts for any of those. It does start at 45 correctly.

    Quick Bandit Gen 2 Front License Plate Holder

    That's the reason I got the quick bandit. It's been fine even after a couple bumps in to snow banks. The screw is a standard secure torx. So a regular torx won't work, but you can get one anywhere that will. I bought this one...
