    In another thread he tweeted that 8.1 would be late in January.:(

    The HW2 stuff is not 8.1

    Edit: Flat6 beat me to the punch and with a link.

    Yes, my reading of those tweets was that 8.1 for AP2 HW was coming soon, but 8.1 for AP1 HW is a month off.

    I could be wrong but like aesculus mentioned, the update for AP2 is coming soon that brings AP2 cars closer to AP1, which has nothing to do with 8.1. Everyone gets 8.1 next month (if released).

    See, given the context of the tweet he's replying to, which is asking "What about 8.1 for HW1?", it seems to me to be clear (unless he misspoke) that he's differentiating AP1 HW and AP2 HW, which suggests that 8.1 is what drops tomorrow for AP2 HW.

    Elon Musk on Twitter

    But then again we're all just guessing. And forgetting to breath.

    He did mention in the past that HW1 cars were now resource constrained -- thus putting a software update with new functionality out to HW1 cars would likely require a lot of extra optimizations.

    His tweets were not entirely clear -- it seems like either scenario is possible...

    Thanks FlatSix, that's super helpful. I had suspected that they were driving hard to get the safety features going asap -- for obvious reasons -- and that everything else that might come with them were icing on the cake.

    I gues this answers that Autopilot on HW2 is not linked to 8.1 as my now misleading title implies. :)

    I'm doing the December 2016 software update right now, 90 minutes before 2017.

    Sure hope that 8.1 will be the solution to XM & USB shortcomings.....I guess only 24 days to go. :)

    Besides exiting a freeway offramp under navigation, what's supposed to be IN 8.1?

    I'm just looking forward to EAP, limited even as it is for now. I also saw a tweet from Elon saying that they'd have a new enhanced iOS app coming with 8.1.

    Faster, rewritten browser. From what I recall, some parts of the core (kernel) are getting a major update. Completely configurable Min/Max car temps. AP upgrades.

    Tesla mobile app update as well, woohoo! No need for those insecure third party apps that take your MyTesla credentials.

    Major overhaul to navigation in general, 'camping mode' settings for cabin max and min temperatures while the car is otherwise off, mobile app refresh.

    I read in another thread Elon said end of January now.
