    The joy of a road of curves and regen braking

    Yesterday my wife and I drove to Canyon Lake. It is a reservoir about 45 miles east of Phoenix, Arizona. ECB6FFD2-CC9C-4809-A1EC-9A5B26D6059D by adayley posted Sep 24, 2020 at 9:59 AM It is such a joy to drive winding and up and down roads without the need to use the brakes!

    Problems putting the car into drive (app and pin to drive)

    In the last few months, since at least v10 update, I've been having problems with getting the app to connect with the car. It almost never connects while I'm sitting in the car. I'll put my phone into airplane mode, then turn airplane mode off, and it will connect then. So I'll drive the car...

    MASTER THREAD: USB drives that work with Sentry and TeslaCam

    A few days ago this message showed up: “Dashcam: USB drive is too slow to save-please use a drive with higher write speed” Then I tried to format the usb stick but it still didn’t work. The worked flawlessly for months until now. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    R and D vs Hold - Dangerous!

    This one's dangerous if not addressed. "Hold" is not a very safe indicator of "Still in D or R, ready to launch" There really needs to be a clear indicator that any touch of the pedal will cause the car to move. My wife pointed out the PRND on screen, top/left corner. Seeing it for the first...
