Anyone know what these dots under PRND mean?

    That means your max regen ability is reduced. Potentially due to high battery temps, high state of charge (looks to be that in this case), or some other variable with the battery. They'll go away once your SoC starts to drop.

    I'm use to our graph and colored dashes on our MS so this was helpful to know. Thanks for asking the question and for the answer.

    KFORE is right. I charged to 100% for a trip and had no regeneration (it coasted), and showed even more dots than that until I ran down the battery a bit. Then the regeneration returned and the dots changed to the line.

    Yes.

    (Smarta$$ answer based upon query used in thread title.)

    Related note: When I rented a 3 back in January I saw warning message the morning after the car was delivered to me. It said that regen had an issue. I thought I had broken the car. Only after I did some reading here did I realize that cold weather affects the battery charging.

    Same. I even called it out as a bug with the firmware in my original review post for the car. It was still under 30F back then.

    OP is smart to realize what it is; but "local Tesla service didn’t know" is a real forehead-slapper.

    Employees should RTFM!

    I see you're located in MN. Wait until the winter. Those dotted lines are going to look like this:

    And then on the road trip to Winnipeg and it'd change to:
