I am planning a long distance trip to Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Glacier NPs and onto Calgary.
I am having problems with a 173 mile segment between Great Falls SuC (99% SoC and Glacier as there aren't many Tesla SuCs east of Glacier. ABRP recommends max speed of 55 mph to get there followed by a...
Totally agree. We set a rule not to spend more than 2.5-3 hours behind the wheel. Because of my back issues, I tend to walk about and stretch a lot during charging stops. The days when I could drive over 1,000 miles a day are in a distant past.
First of all we did not make any reservations prior to starting the trip.
We tried to locate a motel/hotel outside of any large cities with AC charging once we knew approximate distance for a night stop.
For booking, we used Hotels.com and reviewing visitors comments for security and...
I drove most of that route in May (I posted it in this forum).
Every morning, I would use the Tesla Nav. to get me to the next motel/hotel stop for the night, preferably with AC charger.
Like others, I tried to minimize travel time by combining charging with bio/food breaks.
I used ABRP to map...
@Mandingo Thanks for the write-up.
I don't have Premium Connectivity since I made decision to switch to Ownice, previously T2C, and Personal Hotspot for Tessie and Tesla Connectivity.
On long distance trips I enter the destination and Tesla Nav. selects SuperChargers.
I, then, enter the location...
I drove from LA to NJ in May 2023. The trip started with I-15 then I-40 followed by I-75/I-95.
There are plenty of SCs along the way, nothing to worry about.
On the way home we took I-70 to I-15.
Again, there were no issues.
There is a new firmware update for Ownice 2.8.14
I reached out to Ownice on AliExpress regarding company's dedicated website/forum for updates, troubleshooting, and other relevant info.
In return, they send me a link to the new release: 2.8.14 - Google Drive
I wonder if anyone tried the update...
There are two Wi-Fi chips inside Ownice unit. One to handle CarPlay, and the other one is dedicated to vehicle connection to the Internet via Hotspot. So, in essence, there are two types of bridge networking going on.
T2C works similarly except with only one Wi-Fi chip inside.
For the vehicle to have access to the Internet, one must enable Hotspot.
I have a shortcut that turns the Hotspot on when I connect to the car via Bluetooth, and automation that turns Hotspot off when CarPlay is not used.
Yes, the partitions will be erased if you do it in the Tesla. You will end up with a single partition for TeslaCam videos.
To make any changes to the existing drive, move the media storage to PC, Mac or Linux.
Thank you for your recommendation related to TeslaFi.
I am currently using Tessie which generated the map and stats for me.
I will take another look at comparing TeslaFi and Tessie when my sub expires at the end of the year.
Another related comment is that the I-40 segments in Eastern...
My SO and I completed a two-week-long trip in our 2022 MYLR.
Miles Driven: 6674
Energy Used: 2066 kWh
SC locations: 54
Efficiency: .309 kWh/mile
Speed: Posted speed limit + 5 miles

Cities Along I-10
I concur on your assessment of network protocols involved in making T2C and Ownice operational.
The issue we are having has to do with a lack of readily available knowledge in the user communities, such as public forums. The forums would enable users to communicate their issues/suggestions to...
What you are looking for is in the hands of TSLA. Hacking issues go away If TSLA ever decides to support CarPlay and Android Auto natively - I would not put my money on it.
Running Hotspot with Ownice is optional.
There are two connections:
1. Wi-Fi to the box which in turn Tesla connects with to enable CarPlay or AA. All data is provided by your phone (mobile data).
2. Personal Hotspot enables your Tesla to talk to the Internet. The setting can be found by clicking blue Tesla icon, where you have to...
I replaced the Tesla provided memory stick with a Samsung T7 SSD. The reason for that was two-fold:
1. Have more space for Dashcam and Sentry videos
2. Copy my collection of FLAC encoded music albums.
All formatting, creation of directories, and copying files was done on my desktop computer.
I updated my Ownice device away from the car. Once the update was completed, I clicked on "Wi-Fi Settings", changed the language to English. and set both bands to "Auto".
Went back to the car, and double check that my car sees the Ownice unit.
After CarPlay showed up on the screen, I selected...
I have been using Ownice T3 unit and lI prefer it over CarliniKit T2C. Not only I don't have to run Personal Hotspot, but it is al lot more stable compared to two different CarliniKit units that I eventually returned..
I have basic AP, 2023.12.9
I have been reading your posts and comments and I don't really understand what you are trying to do with Premium Connectivity. Once you got the CarPlay working, the only two remaining benefits of having Premium Connectivity are:
1. Real Time Sentry Monitoring
2. High Quality Audio
Tesla can only utilize only one connection at a time: either LTE or Wi-Fi. In order for your Tesla to be connected to the Internet, when using T3 for CarPlay, you would need to enable Personal Hotspot on your iPhone.
