    My 4/18 made MX P100X just received a new HW3 computer on Monday. Right after I left SC I noticed NEW "beep beep beep" type of chime when my car is close to an object (ex, another car pulls up close to me, etc). It is loud, very annoying, and overrides radio/music. It also doesn't turn off until obstruction is resolved (ex, car starts moving). This is not eliminated with Joe mode or Turn off parking chimes selectors on. Anyone experiencing the same?

    Annoying as hell. Does this have to do with sensor calibration? I basically can’t sit in a quite car if I am next to anything even though my car is off. Even theater mode doesn’t turn it off.

    Mine was HW3 from factory. The chimes stop when I stop. Backing into parking space get chimes and distance from object until I stop.

    I have parking assist sounds too. They stop when I stop. This is a higher pitch beep which is different from parking assist chimes. It's more like a warning beep that you are about to hit something.

    Hmm, haven’t noticed a difference on my new car that has factory HW3.

    This is me decelerating towards a freeway entrance. Tri-lane ramp onto a freeway. Cars on either side of me NOT TOO CLOSE. Seems like my sensors are overly sensitive. Any ideas?

    I would drive it for a 50-100 miles and if it did not self-calibrate, take it back to the SC and have them fix it.

    I had my upgrade done at the Santa Barbara service center, Where was yours done?

    Beeping continues in Park and only stops after car is exited and shuts down.

    Burbank. Yep, I am getting the same thing. I hope it’s calibration. I have another appointment 10/21 (don’t ask lol), so I will bring it up if it doesn’t go away.
