    Tesla and their “Airplane View”…… what gives?

    Why does my beautiful gigantic navigational map have me flying at 12,000ft while driving? I see this tiny speck… and then realize it’s actually a massive shopping mall. I can’t for the life of me figure out how to zoom the map in where it’s actually useful… and have it track me at the same...

    Supercharger details popup obscured by list of nearby superchargers. Workaround?

    I just received my new MY LR currently running software 2022.8.2, aka V11 last week. Today sitting in my garage with the car at 80% charge, I was practicing with the navigation and planning a day trip. Navigation said I would arrive at my destination with 38% remaining, and the round trip would...

    Inaccessible charging stations in Tesla navigation

    Twice I have planned a stop at a non-tesla charging station using Tesla navigation in my Y only to find it is in a private apartment or office building with a gate. It would be nice to know that in advance....

    2021 Model S LR 1-month Observations and Issues

    I've been living with my 2021 S LR for about a month now. I absolutely love this car, and wanted to start writing about my experiences good and bad, including several issues I've observed for which there may hopefully be a resolution, as well as adding another data point to many of the ongoing...

    Sending a destination with no address to Tesla

    A question for any techies/programmers here... We are developing a navigation-related app that can send destinations to Tesla. I couldn't find any documentation about the list of formats accepted by the app, but from my testing, it seems to accept addresses shared from various apps (e.g. from...

    How do we navigate to multiple stops?

    My wife is on her first multi-state road trip in our 2019 M3SR. She is using the touchscreen for navigation, not an app. From her texts just now: ------------------------------------- Here’s the basic challenge: I can navigate to Richmond, but I can’t navigate to Dayton with a stop in Richmond...

    GPS Pronunciation

    I have noticed that mispronounced street names by the GPS are occasionally corrected. (Here in Los Angeles, for example, the GPS has learned the correct pronunciation for "Cahuenga" and "Tujunga.") Is there a way for Tesla owners to submit other corrections? An especially egregious...

    Automatic Calendar Navigation Not Working

    My iPhone’s calendar automatically syncs to my 2019 Raven Model S, but, even though I have automatic navigation turned on in the car settings, the navigation map does not automatically show directions to the next appointment in my calendar when I get into my car. It used to work some time ago...

    Map Updates?

    Living in Adelaide, South Australia. Model 3 December 2020. Had one map update since delivery. So many errors with speed limits, when will these be fixed? Also, off topic, but, do the cameras detect overhead speed signs?

    Inaccurate Navigation

    My two year old Tesla 3 mid-range navigation is unreliable. January 5 I tested positive for the Coronavirus and had to drive to a hospital, feeling pretty crappy, to get antibody treatment. Nav took me way out of the way and it took nearly 1.5 hours to drive there. It was right off the Garden...

    Weirdness with AP/Nav after single lane use...

    tl;dr I drive home every day via multiple freeways and there is a section where there is an HOV 'flyover' lane and I use it every day that I can. My issue is that when I use AP/NAV together I have to briefly drop out of AP to make the transition to the flyover lane (the Tesla Nav will not...

    "Take me home"

    I've had my Model S for 2.5 months. I was trained by my sales adviser to use the voice command "Take me home" to navigate home. Works like a champ. Until update 2020.48.30 -- now "Take me home" brings up a map of all the businesses that have the word "home" in them. Didn't take me too long...

    Incorrect navigation A14-M11 intersection

    I’m having problems with navigation when travelling north of cambridge westbound along A14. Roads appear in map, but navigation tries to use no existent junctions. Anyone else having the same problem. Apple maps and Google maps work fine.

    Phone Home Request Creates Navigate Home

    M3, Long Range Dual Motor here. Has anyone had this problem: While driving I request a call home, for example, and the car turns on Navigation and wants to navigate me to "Call Home". This occurs randomly - not every call request I make creates a navigation. I tried a soft re-boot. No...

    How to make the Navigation more accurate

    Hey folks. I love the layout of our navigation, but the accuracy has a lot to be desired. My navigation doesn’t recognize some main roads, particularly when they go under a highway overpass, and makes it nearly impossible for the system to route in the most direct and efficient manner. This...

    Navigation won't work. Says "Service required"

    After the previous firmware updates, my nav quit working. I have hard reset the whole system but still can't get the nav to locate where the car is or navigate anywhere. The error message I get is "Service required" and nothing else. I am on AP 1.0. Firmware is all updated. I searched the forum...

    Points of Interest - Alerts

    Hi, I tried to look into this and can't find anything on it. Does anyone know if there is a way to set up points of interest in the navigation and have the car alert you as you approach each one? Thanks in advance!

    Poll: how do you feel about the traffic indication lines in the nav?

    Searched but didn't see a discussion about this. Anyway squinting at the screen to try to see those teeny tiny, super thin traffic indicator lines is driving me a bit crazy. IMO, it would be great if they were thicker and more legible. Even better, what if the thick blue navigation/directions...

    Who would prefer Waze Navigation?

    I am missing Waze navigation in my model 3. It seems silly to me that we do not have this as an option, who agrees?

    Navigation: traffic info has disappeared!

    Although in the past I had the option to use traffic info to find the quickest route possible in navigation, now all of a sudden this option has disappeared! I still do have the red/amber indication in the map itself, but when I go to the navigation options (both during navigation and in the...

    Navigation AI is lacking

    So last year* sometime there was an update that magically knew to set your destination to work in the morning and home in the evening. Wow! this was a time saver. For the past 7 weeks I've been working from home and haven't been driving a lot. But when I do get in the car in the morning it...

    Weird Place Names on Navigation Map

    My navigation map displays not only major points of interest, but also purely random, obscure businesses ( a nail salon, consulting business in a residence, small attorney’s office, etc.). Why? Is this advertising? How do I turn off these weird places? Nothing in the Manual about this at all.

    No more map exit visualizations?

    Did this get removed in version 9/10? I noticed that these visualizations don't appear anymore.

    Navigation History Disappearing

    Last week, all of a sudden, my navigation history, Home, Work, Favorites all disappeared! There have been no changes or firmware updates since 2020.4.1 from Jan 2020. I reentered some info in. And then a few hours later, it disappeared again. I've done multiple resets, but all the history...

    GPS lags after leaving underground car park

    I'm parking in underground car parks quite often (also at home) and since day 1 my Tesla Model 3 has trouble finding the correct GPS position after leaving such a car park. It takes about 2-4 minutes for it to find its location and before that the navigation system doesn't work properly. This...

    What does live traffic visualization look like?

    I recently subscribed to premium connectivity but I'm not seeing anything different in my navigation that may resemble "live traffic visualization". I have all the other features like music streaming and web browsing but my navigation is unchanged. I was expecting something like red lines for...

    Weird charge planning on my recent road trip

    My model S has version 2019.40.2.1 software. I took a trip to Hawk's Nest state park in West Virginia the other day, starting from home (Clarksville, MD). I didn't do any prior trip planning and I'd never been to that area before - I just put in the destination to the navigation. It came up...

    Hear my phone’s notifications when connected to Bluetooth but listening to other audio source?

    I did a search but couldn’t find an answer here. So I have two phones - an iPhone 11 Pro Max and a Samsung Galaxy Note 9. I realize I can only have one connected at a time, so at any given time, whichever phone is connected via Bluetooth, my phone’s notifications are routed through the Tesla...

    EU navigation in US car

    Hi everyone I have a 2014 US spec car in EU. Now I am trying to install EU nav on my car. On microSD card in MCU I found two versions of Valhalla navigation. One is NA-2018-706 and another is NA-180906-1605. Car shows only NA-180906-1605 is active. I have an image of EU Valhalla navigation...

    Online routing takes to wrong address

    Checking to see if anyone else has encountered this issue. For past year or so, I think probably when they introduced online routing, the map routes to the wrong location when i enter my home address even though it shows the destination marker correctly. It looks like it is the local post...

    Traffic overlay missing on map

    Not sure how long ago this happened, but I just noticed that I no longer have the red lines on my maps when there is heavy traffic. I have a 2018 LR Model 3. I have the v10 update. Another thing I’ll mention (not sure if it’s related to this issue) is that when I took delivery of the car in...

    Things I Learned from Tim

    I've been emailing Tesla over persistent issues I had with Angel, my Model X having to do with the voice command system refusing to listen (possibly because Angel has started to act like a teenager). After awhile Tim from service called and we spent over an hour on the phone working through...

    Tesla Nav vs Waze in Toronto: Opinions wanted please!

    Hi all, I'm thinking about getting a Model 3 SR+. Can people from Toronto please share their experiences with Tesla Nav vs Waze? It really concerns me that the SR+ maps don't show live traffic data (I like to be able to see it because sometimes I will take alternate routes based on the red and...

    Tap on POI doesn’t work?

    The manual says that if you drop the pin or touch an existing pin on the map you can see info about the place, the phone number and working hours. When I tap on the existing POI pins, it doesn’t show anything. If I drop the pin on top of the existing POI, it will sometimes show working hours...

    Nav Voice level setting not being stored for me

    M3 LR AWD 4500mi EAP FSD 9019.20.1 The issue for me is that the volume level of the navigation voice is not being stored. It generally goes to lowest level, somehow, even though I try to store it in my profile at the level that I "enjoy". Also since no "number value" (like 1-10) shows up, no...

    Lost Saved Locations

    I've had my Model 3 for over a year, and the other day I hit "Navigate" then "Work" as I normally do, and it prompted me for my work address. My work address had been stored successfully for over a year, and now it was gone. Same goes for Home and Favorites (there was also no recent location...

    Church Street Church Street

    Whenever navigation has directed me to a street called “Church Street”, the voice direction will read the direction as “Church Street Church Street”, such as “Turn right on Church Street Church Street”. This is not a local problem, as this exact same behavior has occurred in three different...

    Navigation w/FSD in LA -- 110 FastTrak?

    Hi LA Tesla drivers, Curious if anyone has used FSD with navigation between the South Bay and Downtown -- will the HOV setting put the car in the FastTrak lane? Or is there a separate setting to accomplish this? The ramp is probably 2 miles from Tesla's location in Hawthorne - hard to imagine...

    Report Navigation Errors?

    There's a major freeway exit near me (Houston) that is mislabeled in the Tesla map. The same exit is properly labeled Google Maps. Is there somewhere to report these types of errors?

    Map Editing and Forcing a Refresh?

    My neighborhood is very new. When I got my Model 3 in February it didn't know most of the roads near my house. I realized quickly that the maps come from Google, so I added all of the nearby streets to Google maps. Side Note: To do this for yourself Go to maps.google.com in a browser Make sure...

    Received latest update on 4/29. Everything working great up until this morning. My navigation map is frozen and the red arrow is just stuck at home. Even the map in the smaller screen is stuck as well. I've tried deleting destinations and even chose a destination in my history but the map just...

    Audio Controls While Navigating

    While listening to radio this AM while also navigating, I noticed that when the navigation lady is giving verbal instructions, the radio is not muted. Hence, much of the time, neither source is intelligible. Couple of questions: 1. Is the nav lady's volume independently controlled? (It...

    Newbie navigation question

    I’m on the cusp of ordering a Model S. Not pushed the button yet but probably will shortly. You folks might be sick of this but on the various similar threads there's a handful of points I’m not sure I have an answer to… My main one is on navigation – I read that the Tesla system runs on an...

    Map Updates for Road Closures

    I was stuck in a backup for some hours last night in the mountains of North Carolina when a rock slide closed the highway. After they eventually got us out of the backup I then needed to reroute to reach my destination and might need an intermediate charge. The in car navigator could not help...

    Swap Navigation on the HUD from left to right side

    Is is possible to swap the navigation on the driver HUD from the left side to the right side? (Model S 2013) I drive with my left hand on the top of wheel and it blocks the street level view of the navigation, so I have to change how I drive to see where Im going or I have to look over at the...

    Rear view camera - v9.0

    I like to keep the rear view camera always on the top half of my screen when driving. It seems like this is no longer allowed with v9.0. I can’t seem to get anything but the map on the top portion of the screen. Has anyone figured out to have something other than the map on the upper...

    Discrepancy in Google navigation compared to phone

    Hi all, do you also observe navi (old Google one, firmware 32.4, EU if it matters) planning "crazy routes (i.e 2.5 hours instead of 2 hours, navigating on pedestrian/bicycle paths, jumping out of tunnel to surface road...)? What's interesting is that Google navi on Android phone doesn't (and...
