    I took delivery of my Model S a week ago. Software is 5.0. Like some others who have recently taken delivery, I'm experiencing issues with my GPS where it seems to lose track of which direction I am going or precisely where I am on the map (sees me as 500+ feet away sometimes heading in a different direction). I contacted Tesla and they indicated that they're working on a fix and that it will be deployed via software update. I've seen posts from others having the same problem. Wondering if anyone else has heard anything about the timing of a fix.

    Thankfully I don't have the issue, but did ask SC about fix, and they did confirm it's been fixed, but release is still being tested, and hoped in the next 30 days to start pushing to all cars affected (based upon build date). Don't know if that helps, but what I was told.

    FWIW, some posts suggest both a hardware (gyro) problem and/or software. Time will tell...
