    Spotify and car "favorites"?

    Has anyone figure out how to add anything from spotify to the cars quick favorites section? I'd never seen or been able to get anything in to that quick list until 2020.44, then my podcasts appeared in the favorites list, but nothing else from Spotify. Also, is there a voice search or...

    Model S audio (radio) - is it a bit rubbish or is it me?

    Folks, is it just me or is the audio system on the current Model S Long Range in UK just not very good? The DAB / FM radio on my outgoing car, a 2013 BMW 520, seems to be way better... Specifically my issue is the radio, which just seems to be poor - not easy to use (but I'll get over that) but...

    Only Default Stations Showing in Tunein

    I am a total newb when it comes to Tunein. I am tired of paying the exorbitant fees to Sirius for the 2-4 stations that I ever listen to in the car (Model X, 2017). Saw the Tunein option on the Tesla menu and decided to look into it. On PC, registered for free Tunein account, and saw the...

    No radio after 2020.4.2

    Having picked up my M3 a week ago, I set my favourite AM and DAB radio stations. Then I upgraded to 2020.4.2 and now I can only use TuneIn stations and Spotify. Although my AM and DAB favourites remain in the favourites list, touching on them only brings up the spinning wheel of death. The DAB...

    DAB radio text and scrolling

    I was going to post a Feature Request in the Model 3 UI forum asking that the DAB information text line scroll. On the stations I listen to, the programme name often takes up the whole space and I can't see the name of the track. I seem to remember that other DAB radios I've seen scroll the text...

    FM radio not great

    I know most of you folks have moved onto streaming/usb music, but I still like to listen to NPR commuting to work. I've found the FM radio a bit disappointing - some fuzziness on open highways, digital noises when I get in town, overall lower volume than other inputs. Never noticed this in my...

    Slacker and Spotify Observations

    I've had a hard time finding Slacker and Spotify details so I'm going to post some observations I've made in the hopes that it might help someone. If anyone wants to add on to this list, please do so. To start, let me say that since v10, for me at least, voice commands will no longer directly...

    SiriusXM Flaky Then Failed

    I just took delivery of a new Raven Model X two weeks ago and I'm happy to finally be part of the movement! Question: my SXM channels have been flaky since day 1. They will randomly stop working even with clear sky and no trees and it will take a few minutes before they come back. Last night...

    Tesla Model 3 Service Issues

    Model 3 Standard Range Plus Service Issues: a somewhat reasonable rant. Please read to the end. This is long, here is a summary: I just barely missed out on free supercharging miles, I missed out on white (which is a paint I wanted but couldn’t muster up my wallet for. This is a stupid remark...

    Sirius XM Disconnect Issues

    Anybody else have issues with SiriusXM cutting out and not coming back, even with no obstructions? It sometimes take 24 hours to get the signal back. I went to service center and they said it’s because of my ceramic tint on the back window because the antenna is there. But that didn’t sit right...

    Anyone notice low FM receiver signal strength? I live in a remote area and my other cars have much better FM reception.

    Vendor How To: Perform Hard Reset on Tesla Model 3

    Hello friends! Sasha's music streaming stopped working for a full day last week, and after we got it back up and running using this procedure we realized it would be selfish to not share it with all of you. This guide will walk you through how to perform a hard reset on your Tesla Model 3...

    TuneIn Radio

    Love my M3 and the audio system. Slacker isn't great, but I use TuneIn Radio all the time (streaming those classical stations...). Problem is, I can't seem to set any stations as "favorites" and have them stick. I have to search for them once I exceed the number allowed to remain in...

    Radio vs Spotify volume verschil

    Is er bij jullie ook zo'n verschil tussen het volume van radio zenders en Spotify? De meeste wagens hebben aparte volume controls om dit beter in balans te krijgen maar de M3 duidelijk niet (of ik vind de optie niet). Bij Spotify moet mijn volume steevast op 70% van het maximum staan als ik op...

    Model 3 radio reception issue

    I've noticed since I took delivery of my AWD Model 3 in Sept 2018 that the FM radio reception is quite mediocre. I've read other reports however nothing I've seen seems to be quite this bad, or quite this tolerable by the manufacture. Note that I'm listening to FM stations that are local and...

    Voice recognition - playing specific radio stations doesn't work anymore

    I got my Model 3 last weekend. Since the first day, I was able to say voice commands such as "Play 94.9 FM," or "Play Kiro 97.3 FM" And it would work fine. Yesterday, however, this capability stopped working. And it's not the voice recognition that's failing (since it understands what I said...

    Network down again?

    About 12:30 Eastern, my streaming audio, internet radio, and voice commands (at least for the Bug report I was trying to make) all stopped working. Plus I could not reach the car from my mobile app. This is similar-sounding to what some people reported a few days ago when the servers...

    Intune radio skips/Slacker radio does not

    Has anyone else had this problem? I searched multiple forums, Google, and opened a ticket with Tesla and not much luck. So what happens is anything I play on Intune radio skips horribly. Plays for a few seconds, skips, and repeats constantly. I know its not a connection issue as Slacker will...

    Radio (AM/FM) cuts in and out when first in car

    I posted about this a while ago and since many SW upgrades have not fixed it I thought I would try again.. When I first get in the car and it has been left in radio mode(AM/FM Only) the radio sound occasionally cuts from static to sound repeatedly for about 5 seconds then resumes sound. I have...

    How to turn off audio/radio?

    I'm hoping someone can help me. I got my car yesterday and have been unable to find an answer to this. I don't always like to listen to radio or music when I drive. For the life of me, I have been unable to figure out how to turn the audio/radio off. The media system seems very unintuitive...

    Tune In radio losing hundreds of stations

    Was listening to 880 AM news radio via TuneIn on my ride into work this morning when I hear an ad saying that 880 will be moving to radio.com and to use the new radio.com app to listen as it will no longer be available on TuneIn. Obviously, Tesla doesn't have a radio.com app, soooo, I guess no...

    Is the Favorites radio station working well for anyone?

    Curious to hear how the Favorites streaming radio station is working for others. My understanding was that the station works by looking at all the songs you have thumbed up, and building out a playlist that contains those songs as well as others it thinks are related. Within a week or two of...

    Radio goes on after ending a phone call -- when it wasn't on before!

    Does anyone else have this problem? I'm in my Model X with the radio OFF. I make a phone call, hang up, and then the radio comes on automatically -- every single time. It is off before I make the call. Sometimes it's very startling because I'm driving and it's loud. The radio will also come...

    Wrong FM Radio Station Logos

    Many of my radio stations show the wrong logo, usually a station from another city and often different formats. Like a country station in Chicago when I live in Minneapolis. I think only 2 are actually right. Is there a why to fix this or is this just a bug somewhere? Sorry if this was...

    Slacker radio has not been working well lately

    For some reason my Slacker radio has not been working well lately, and have been having hangs and spinning circles a lot. I know it is not my LTE connection because Podcasts and other Internet radio works fine. The only way that I have been able to fix this is by doing a reset of the center...

    Sirius XM - No Channel Listing

    Having installed Sirius XM it was unfortunate to find that there is no channel listing and no way to direct tune a channel. Evidently for some there is a folder hierarchy but others of us, nothing. So its a matter of tuning through each channel individually. Going to bring up to the SC when...

    SiriusXM Radio has taken a big step backwards with 8.1

    I'm very disappointed that 8.1 has, for some unknown reason, tweaked what was a really good thing. As a audiophile and fan of music history, I always loved (past tense) the way Tesla allowed the 17" screen to display ALL of the song details: full title, artist, year, etc. Since 8.1, however, a...

    Radio and ?spotify in 8.0

    NewThe slacker app is gone in my 8.0 update and is replaced by whatever Personal Streaming Radio is. Some content such as the DNA shows is the same as or is from slacker. But it's not clear. If you look in Settings...then Apps, slacker is no longer there. It's not replaced by anything as obvious...

    Slacker App question

    Passenger Visor Broken, now no radio or sat reception, Model X

    My son managed to take the passenger sun visor and somehow snap it (moved it the wrong way). Now the FM and sat radios have no reception. LTE and therefore internet radio both working fine. Looking at the wires, all I see is the wires to power the vanity mirror, but does anyone know how these...

    Get out too fast - car stays on!

    OK I finally learned why I have found my car listening to music without me. Or why my car left the parking lights shining all night one evening. Rain. If you get out of the drivers seat and close the front door relatively quick, say a bit <1second, the car stays on. Well when it is dumping rain...

    Radio Song Information and Cover Art Not Displaying

    I just got my new S85D. I live near Toronto in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. For basic radio stations, there is no song information, artist information, or cover art displaying. Does anyone else have this problem? Basic stations like 99.9, 97.3 etc. This should be displaying, especially since...

    Aftermarket Subwoofer?

    I'm having a difficult time justifying the $2500 for the Ultra High Fidelity system. Has anyone installed a subwoofer and is there a stock connection/port somewhere? There has to be right? Thanks for your help. I'll take this $2500 and put it towards the 85D if I can swing it!

    TuneIn Radio/digital radio in Australia

    I'd love to be able to listen to high quality Australian Broadcasting Corporation radio in my Tesla. The AM radio reception is surprisingly poor--I guess that's what happens with inbuilt aerials. I expected a digital radio but am I right in saying that only the FM band is digital in the Tesla...

    Weak AM Reception

    Almost have my new 2008 1.5 in ship shape. Mine has the JVC KD-NX5000 option radio, but I notice that my usual local AM stations are very weak, 'staticy', and what I mostly hear is whine from the electronics. Do others experience this, or is my antenna cable partly disconnected?

    Numbered buttons appearing under station in media player?

    Anyone figured out what those numbered buttons are that appear under the station ID in the media player when playing radio? Sometimes there are none, sometimes two (1 and 2), and sometimes three. Could this be an override to force use of one of the three antennas? The function isn't obvious from...

    Roadster Radio not working and past few days Battery life dropping 5% per day :(

    AM Radio Needs Filter...?

    I listen to several local AM radio sports talk stations here in LA, but with the new S it's almost impossible as the AM radio is picking up so much interference from the internal electric interface of the car. While it can be entertaining for a short bit to hear the frequency sound increase as...
