    Model S Unnerfed on 2020.48.30

    My Model S 75D nerfed to 80kw max is now charging at 117kw on a V2 120kw SC since 2020.48.30 update. HW3 also recently fitted but the unnerfing came only after 2020.48.30

    Slow Infotainment after HW3 upgrade

    I noticed the infotainment has gotten really, really slow after upgrading from HW2 to HW3 (late 2016 MS, MCU 1). I've done my own troubleshooting and narrowed it down to the Tesla Dashcam. When I have a USB memory card plugged in and the dashcam is recording then I can almost guarantee the...

    Late 2017 Model S 100D, HW3/MCU2 $61,900

    HW3 AP detecting & reacting to flashing "signal ahead" signs as yellow traffic lights

    Background: I've got a 2018 Model 3 with FSD and HW3 retrofit since Feb 2020. These things: Anything that contains even a potentially flashing warning light seems to be misclassified, and reacted to, as a full-fledged traffic light. Railroad crossings (lights), pedestrian crossing (lights)...

    FSD/HW3 Computer Upgrade - Disappointed and Impressed

    I just posted my review of the FSD upgrade for my 2017 Model S (which came with the MCU2 upgrade, which I love). The AP visualizations are cool and the traffic light and stop sign recognition seems to be working very well, but my extreme lane keeping test results were quite disappointing...

    Hey everyone so I'm not sure if you guys remember but about a month ago i made a post on reddit in regards to Tesla wanting to charge me a $2700 fee (On top of the $2500$) for my MCU2 Upgrade...SO I THOUGHT.

    Just ordered FSD

    Hi everyone, so I bit the bullet a couple of hours before the offer ended and ordered FSD for my Model S after mulling it over for a few days, I have had the car almost 2 years from new and though I have a few issues with it that Tesla still can't fix (boot alarm goes off every time the boot is...

    HW3 Upgrade from HW 2.5 with MCU1

    Just got my car back after having HW3 upgraded from HW 2.5. I stuck with my MCU1 since I wanted to see the difference before spending $2,500 on the MCU2 upgrade. I'm stuck on 2020.12 for now, instead of 2020.15 or 2020.16. The alert that I was about to go through a red light happens much earlier...

    HW3 and Broken WiFi

    The Bellevue Service center finally sent back my Model X. They had it for over a week and while their results were less than satisfactory, they're saying that there is nothing they can do to improve it--even on their own network. In the past two years, after the initial setup, when I pulled my...

    Told I don’t have FSD??

    Hello all. I purchased my Model 3 in December of 2018. At the time, I believe I paid $5000 for full self driving (not sure what it was called then, but it has full self driving, smart summon, auto park, etc). I recently scheduled service to see if I could do the hw3 upgrade. When tesla called...

    HW3 upgrade lost game progress and profiles?!

    I just got my car back from getting the upgrade to hardware 3, and found that apparently all my progress on Stardew Valley, Beach Buggy Racing, and Cuphead has been lost! Why is there apparently no way to backup the progress and restore it, or to transfer it over to the new computer?? I can't...

    Not upgrading to 40.50.7...

    This morning I called Support to inquire why my car (S75D - Sept 2017) is stuck on 40.2.1. I was watching as this update was downloading early December and it got stuck on 50% download. The next morning I went to the car to find out if the download was successful only to find that it had...

    What happens to the reclaimed AP2.5 computers?

    I'm curious about what Tesla does with the AP2.5 computers they get from doing the HW3 upgrade? Do they throw them away? Use them for alternate computing tasks? Keep them as spares for repairing non-FSD cars? Install them in new non-FSD vehicles? Collect them in a warehouse somewhere? As the...

    Step by Step How To Check If You Have HW3 (Physically)

    So its been bothering me for a few weeks since the winter sneak peak of FSD. Do I have a HW3 FSD ready PC in my model 3? Well some said if I can see cones I do , Some said 2.5 has cones as well. I decided to check my actual computer in the car to see the serial number and match it to the HW3...

    M3SR+ (build 15 Jun'19) mapped to SR (220 miles range) and came with HW2.5

    1. M3SR+ build and delivered during mid Jun'19 but came with HW2.5 We intentionally waited till end of May'19 for placing the order (with unexpected $400 increase in price) so that will get HW3, but only realized it when my car didn't recognize traffic cones after the latest updates...

    Smart summon takes corners around objects too sharply

    Hi All, Do other people have the experience of smart summon essentially getting the car’s nose/front around an object (usually a parked car at the end of a parking aisle) and then apparently forgetting that the object is still there by the time the side & rear of the Tesla swings around...

    What happened to FSD retrofits on AP2 + MCU1?

    Hey everybody; I've been a long timer in TMC now and these days are the quietest I'm seeing this Model S section. Where is everybody? Why are people - who are usually very difficult to satisfy in this forum tbh - not complaining about the lack of a visible path to get FSD (i.e. HW3 retrofit) in...

    Appt for HW 2.5 to 3.0 Retro tomorrow. Should I?

    I have a 2018 Model X P100D HW 2.5 on software 2019.40.1.1. I am scheduled to go to the SC tomorrow morning to get my HW 2.5 retrofitted to 3.0. I have been hearing complaints about HW 3.0 and accompanying software and how there's not really any point in getting 3.0 yet. Should I have them do it...

    FSD HW3 retrofit in Japan

    I've bought Tesla MS with FSD package a year ago (HW2.5). I know in the U.S. and Canada Tesla started retrofitting FSD with the new HW3 computer. Any info when they gonna start doing it in Japan?

    Smart Summon HW3 vs HW2.5 differences yet?

    I'm surprised I haven't found any threads on this already, but has anyone done any testing or comparison of Smart Summon with the HW3 computer compared to HW2.5? Is there any difference in the performance, speed, or accuracy of the routing between the two systems? Also I recall reading that...

    Activation function, instruction set?

My first post here, don't worry, I know this topic has been covered a lot on this forum. I've researched it, but couldn't find the information I needed. I wanted...

    Will Tesla ever allow AP only vehicles to pay for a HW3 retrofit?

    Before you say it, yes, I know there's no guarantee that an AP only vehicle would ever benefit from HW3. But: 1. I simply cannot afford $6,000+ in cash right now (promised the wife we'd pay off the loan before buying FSD). 2. Tesla presently sells a Home Link upgrade for $300 including...

    HW 2.5 or HW 3

    I received and installed the update today to 2019.32.1 53f03e4.. I got my M3 AWD FSD 2 weeks ago today (I know almost 1k already I just can‘t stop driving) I was checking the dash cam mode when I came across a YouTube video saying that if your dash am records in H.264 you have HW 2.5 and if...

    No LTE with line through it after waking car

    So I got my 3 (HW3) about two months ago. Everything was good for the first two weeks and then I noticed that I couldn’t wake the car from my app. It would give a “vehicle connection error”. Then when I would get into the car, I would have no LTE connection and the LTE service bars would have a...

    HW 3.0 Deliveries in Canada

    Just to preface I know that there is already a thread on this topic in the M3 forum, but hoping to get some Canada-centric information here as it seems HW 3.0 availability is different across different global regions. Has anyone been getting HW 3.0 on June/July deliveries to Canada (Ontario)...

    HW3 Not in SR+ Built 5/24/19

    Customer support informed me that my new SR+ (built 5/24/19) is equipped with HW2.5 rather than HW3. The agent apologized saying that this was "abnormal," but that I would need to get the free upgrade from a service center in the future. I ordered FSD with my vehicle. Has anybody experienced...

    Got the M3 LR FSD yesterday, but no Enhanced summon?

    Hi All, I'm really excited to get my car and I liked most of it. However, I don't think my car has enhanced summon. From the app I can just drive forward or reverse but It doesn't allow me to choose a point and navigate there. Does that mean my car has 2.5 HW? or the enhanced summon is not...

    Dashcam quality on HW3 FW 2019.7.106

    I know that HW3 firmwares aren't fully baked yet, but here is a sample of the video quality from my recently delivered Model 3. Details like license plates aren't fully legible yet. Hopefully will get better soon. Btw - can anyone on a newer FW for HW3 share their Dashcam clip quality? Thanks...

    FSD & HW3 Clarification

    I think that it’s a positive sign that EM is once again confirming that AP 2.0 and AP 2.5 owners who pre-purchased FSD will receive the AP HW3 CPU (Now the FSD CPU) upgrade at no charge. I am curious, however, as to whether or not us AP 2.0 owners will also require a Hardware upgrade of some...

    Received HW3 MX today. What I found compared to my 2016 MS (delivery)

    I know there is a similar post, but it seems more about what version of firmware and HW included.

    Is free upgrade to HW3 transferrable with the car?

    I have a March 2017 Model S. I paid for EAP and FSD (silly me). The car now has AP HW 2.0. We have been told that we will get a free upgrade to HW3 if needed for FSD in the future.My question, If I sell the car will the new owner get that upgraded computer HW? I have not seen this question...

    FSD HW3 upgrade costs

    I'm yet to see anyone connecting these dots.... Anyone who bought a Tesla prior to 2019 was able to upgrade to FSD/EAP for a price. That price is coming down significantly over the last couple weeks. Two price drops in Canada: Was $5500, then ~$4400, now $2600. Elon has stated that the HW3...

    What does thIs Elon Tweet mean regarding HW3 upgrades

    I’ve been kind of wondering where HW3 upgrades falls in as far as these new FSD after purchase prices goes. The main reason I bought FSD with the car was for HW3 regardless of the progress on FSD firmware itself. If I were to pay for FSD today I sure would want to know where HW3 upgrades...
