    Supercharger - Richmond, BC - Garden City Rd

    Nice, 40 stalls! on the rooftop of the parkade, atop the building near the NW corner of the Central at Garden City complex (NOT the Walmart building further to the east). I don't think this parkade was ever very busy, certainly not up on the roof (unlike the busy Walmart covered lot or other...

    trunk closes but wont latch that extra latch so car says trunk open

    I did check those beforehand and no they weren't the problem in my case. Mobile service came the other day and replaced the cinching actuator and latch - working properly now

    trunk closes but wont latch that extra latch so car says trunk open

    Yesterday my 7.5yr old MS 70D had this failure of the rear trunk latching mechanism. Trunk moves down/closes when you press the button or fob, but at bottom of travel the cinching actuator does not grab the latch, so trunk beeps and opens again. I was able to manually push the trunk lid down so...

    Is Tesla Canada changing their loaner policy?

    My 2015 MS 70D is in for service today for the frunk latch recall plus a couple non-warranty issues. They said the car won't be ready until end of the day or possibly tomorrow. When I first booked the appointment, via the app service message I was told "... As your car is no longer under...

    Apple Music - "Choose Media Source" every time entering the car

    I wouldn't be holding my breath, if I were you. OP here... well my Apple Music 4 month free trial ends in 2 days, and I'll be going back to Spotify. In the 4 months that have passed, my car has received 7 software updates but this issue has persisted since I started using Apple Music. Currently...

    Apple Music - "Choose Media Source" every time entering the car

    I got the 2023.6.8 update the other day, and this problem with Choose Media Source still happening with Apple Music. Maybe not 100% of the time upon getting back in the car, but almost every time. Momentarily selecting another source like Spotify then allows Apple Music to start playing when...

    Annoying half second pauses with connected devices? Anyone else?

    Just got 2023.6.8 update last night, and this problem with frequent random silent gaps in the audio seems to be fixed now. Only drove for about an hour total over several trips but not a single gap so far after the update.

    Annoying half second pauses with connected devices? Anyone else?

    I've also read in some other threads that people have been told this is a known software issue, though no indication of when to expect a fix. Someone also mentioned it affects ALL audio in the car including turn signal clicking sounds, chimes, etc. Still happening in my MS with firmware 2023.6.1

    Apple Music - "Choose Media Source" every time entering the car

    I've had 2023.6.1 for 6 days so far and this Choose Music Source issue still exists. Can't say what other "improvements" there are to Apple Music with this release since I seem to spend half my time just simply trying to get it to play!

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    by "streaming audio freezing" every few minutes, do you mean the sound randomly cuts out for a fraction of a second - almost as if someone just momentarily disconnected then reconnects the speaker? If so, I've been having that problem the past couple months or so, I'm assuming its some media...

    Annoying half second pauses with connected devices? Anyone else?

    update: did some further listening and I confirm the problem definitely also happens with USB audio, as well as Apple Music and Spotify. So it's not an LTE connectivity issue. as stated the problem seems to have started recently, in past month or so.

    Spotify vs Apple Music

    I've been using Spotify Premium in my Tesla for some time and the above is something I find annoying with Tesla's implementation - it should be so easy to fix and add this useful feature. I'm currently trying out a 4 month free Apple Music trial, so I now have both it and Spotify in the car...
