Hi guys,

Any idea why the Australian Tesla website hasn't been updated with the latest autopilot and current 7.0 software version information like the US website? Cause this is really keeping me up at night. :crying:

Cheers,

Ahh well you see, to the US, Australia is wilderness... Crocodile country. Mick Dundee don't trouble himself too much with reading up on 7.0 and Palo Alto don't trouble itself too much with down under either. They are still trying to figure out how to mass produce the Model X. Eventually, when the Model 3 comes around, they might remember to offer us the Ludicrous Mode updates that were once promised to us. Remember summoning the car and all that? Also evaporated. So we may as well just go boomerang some kangaroos.

yeah, still no sign of a solution to the garage door opener issue. " engineering are working on it"? How much engineering is required? The cars have hardware, the Landrover Evoque has homelink here, so just some pressure on the supplier to open it up? Then a software update to activate it. Geez!! Without something like it, forget about auto parking and summoning your car!! Also, why no browser? That is just a software update, even if it were limited to when the vehicle is in park. Again, maybe a line or two of code. But hey, the wallaby I saw bouncing down my drive two nights ago might be in real danger after all.

Interesting points, Dborn. As a new owner, I would assume Tesla Australia (Sydney & Melbourne) would be battling for these items on our behalf. Not the case?

Yeah, the locals are looking into it. Suggest you contact the service manager in Melbourne and ask him. No harm in further and more enquiries going to the mothership.
