Hi everyone! Just got my Model S today! Super excited...I noticed that my AP2 is not activated yet. Does it take couple days until I can see it? I don't see any software updates on my screen either.
Thank you for your kind words. Right now it is on v8.0 (2.52.120).
You currently do not have the latest FW, which has limited Autopilot available. You need version 17.3.2, which should auto download to your car, but you need to have your car on wifi.
Also, you may or may not be aware but Autopilot for HW2 cars (such as yours) is currently only working in very limited situations. Your have Traffic Aware Cruise Control (TACC) available at up to 75MPH, and Autosteering only on freeways and only put to 45MPH.
According to ev-fw.com (firmware tracker for Tesla) it looks like it's only people who have gotten it via wifi until now. I guess that Tesla would like to save a bit of the data usage on the LTE connections.
My guess is that they first roll it out on cars connected to wifi, and after a waiting period they release it on LTE as well.
If you have the possibility to connect to wifi, it seems to be the quickest way to get the updates. If not, they will show up at some point, but hard to say when. The first update I got, was 3-4 days after people on wifi started to get theirs, the second was 2 days after wifi started to roll out.
So I'm hoping that this one will soon follow, but we'll see.
However, Elon Musk was just on twitter, talking about there will be a software update this weekend to improve self-calibration on HW2, so maybe we will get that instead.
In the meantime, congratulations on your brand new car, it's a great experience but quite different from regular cars (I never waited anxiously for firmware updates for the Suzuki).
So apparently there have been a new update sent out.
I just installed 17.3.15 via LTE 1½ hour ago, hopefully they fixed the calibration issues.
And it would seem that they are also gracing us poor guys without wifi since I was the first to report it on ev-fw.com. Proving once again, trying to find a system in how, when and why Tesla issues updates will be a futile task.
Anyway, now I just need to get off work so I can go see what was in the update and if I finally don't have to think quite as much during driving
