    Isn't the picture of a non-autopilot car?

    It is funny how this BS spreads. Now also Finland's biggest newspaper says Tesla in rolling out this to beta-testers although there seems to be almost zero evidence of this anywhere. Only credible thing that I've seen is that Bonnie has seen in some private FB someone to say he/she has it.

    That's an old photo taken during the P85D launch event isn't it?

    The recently leaked (now taken down) video showing a bit of the v7 UI had the energy usage graph inside a circular "dial" with the instantaneous power reading wrapped around it, so looked quite different to this.

    That seems to be a screen grab from the "introducing the D" event from last year. I just re watched it yesterday.

    I'm pretty sure that is old.

    I think that's actually from the Design Studio.

    All of the articles are tracing back to the same IEEE Spectrum report that offers no evidence. If there are beta testers who have the software right now, you likely won't know it, with a topic as mouth-watering as this.

    In "News from the Frunk" it was mentioned the beta testers signed NDA's so we won't hear much from them.
    I have received 2 firmware updates in the last week mainly working on refinements to TACC and Collision Avoidance.
    Mine seems better with every upgrade. Especially at higher speeds. 60-80mph

    Someone posted this up on Facebook. Not sure if it's new or old.

    That looks pretty slick. If they post anything else, please share it with us.

    what is the 'H' that looks a little like a tie fighter?
    to me it seems like a little bit of an 'odd' dash screen. not sure what it is, a little barren?
    I guess with more cars around you it would get filled in a bit

    so with this it seems like you could choose whatever you want to show inside of the Kw meter
    but no choice for the left side anymore..or I guess it is nav on the left but just a bit lower, but no map nav?

    I think its new but if navigation wants me to make a U-turn its probably not wise to show 4 lanes.

    I haven't seen it before, but looks to be in the same form as the press event.

    Personally, I would still expect my odometer and clock to be available to me even when autopilot'ing.

    I never understood why they put the clock on both screens. But I agree about the odo.

    No, that's the one to the right... The symbol around the "H" is the universal symbol for brakes, but not sure what "H" means in the center. Google found no similar images.
