Just got notification for a 2020.8.3 update just a few days after getting 2020.8.2. Anyone else seeing this? Anyone know what's in this update? I'm only at 10%...

Ok, so update just completed, looks exactly the same as the 2020.8.2 update. Improvements to Track mode, Bluetooth connectivity and voice commands, with a brief mention of "Minor updates and bug fixes..."

Just got my 8.3 update yesterday, it's the same thing as the other 8.x updates, according to what I have seen from the notes for the other 8.x updates.
I know for most it's lock down situation, but have you had an opportunity to try out Autopilot or TACC with the new update? When the 2020.8.2 update was in progress on my screen, it said "autopilot update in progress..." I was hoping that there would be a fix for the phantom breaking issue, but found out that it was just as bad, if not worse. Any real time, drive time experience with the new update?

I work at an essential business, so I still have to go to work unfortunately. In my opinion, autopilot still works just about the same compared to 4.1, I have not noticed any differences based on my driving experience for today. Keep in mind, I only have basic autopilot, which is only TACC and autosteer.

My guess, people getting 2020.12.X clicked ‘Advanced’ in the Software Update Preference. People getting 2020.8.X have it set to ‘Standard.’

I have had the update preference on "advanced" since the first week I got my car more than 2 months ago, I just got my 8.3 update yesterday...

Unless Performance models gets priority, then it's probably a different story since I have a SR+.

Guess not. LOL

Doubt it based on the OP’s username suggesting the 3 is a Performance.


I think 2020.12 applies to those that have FSD. The sub 2020.8.X updates seem to apply to those that have EAP (not FSD). I'm just not sure what these "Minor updates and bug fixes..." are actually updating or fixing.

My car doesn’t have FSD and its on 2020.12.1.

Based on TeslaFi data different versions are going to all sorts of different configurations. The only thing we can’t tell from TeslaFI is if FSD is owned by one group and not the other.

I just received the update yesterday to 2020.8.3. I was previously on 2020.4. My car seems to be one that gets updates later than others. I never received 2020.8 or 8.2.

P.s.I dont have FSD and my updates is set to advanced.

Exactly the same story here. Seems like I have been waiting forever to move away from 2020.4.1. Teslafi shows that now less than 10% have the 2020.4.X versions. But with this virus thing it will be awhile before I can drive again... :(

Nope. I'm on 2020.8.2 (just updated a few days ago from .1) and I've got FSD.

Just got 8.3 last night. Had not driven for a week so decided to get in the car and see if it would update. Sometimes seems if I do not drive the car I do not get the updates. As soon as I open up the screen it started downloading.

I just got 2020.8.3 last night as well. 2020.12.1 has been sent almost exclusively to US users and appears to have a new stop warning system and new maps. 12.1 does not appear to be limited to HW3 though. (All info based on TeslaFi data).
