I still can’t believe they named something a name that means nothing to anyone that doesn’t know the original of an Internet term (and googling it at the time got you nowhere). Joe Mode is insane. Why not Quiet mode or Kid mode or Sleep mode?
I'm specifically asking about any app on top/any app on bottom that I'm still enjoying in 8.1. Or is there still no reason for me to upgrade my 2016 AP1.0.
I'm sure we're SOL for at least another year. I wouldn't mind trying the new UI, but the point of no return is a major contention. I'm not so much concerned about the usability of the new UI, but worried it will slow down the functioning of Slacker, the browser(which I use), navigation and the starting up of my car out of sleep mode. I'm starting to want some of the new features, like the parental control feature, so I'm more comfortable letting my 16 year old take the car.
I'm also concerned I don't have the latest safety improvements like blind spot warning and the latest and greatest automatic braking. I don't care about all the games and BS. I just want a nice functioning car like I currently have with version 8.
I also wouldn't care as long as there was an MCU upgrade that I could do, if things did slow down too much. I really feel like Tesla is ****ing us on this whole deal. I'm certainly not buying another Tesla if this experience doesn't go well.
I think Fart Mode is one of the may reasons to upgrade
I'm sure we'll be hearing something about the MCU/2 Retrofit in the coming months (before Dec 31, 2019).
100% agree with this considering for the P spec cars we are also told NOT to launch hard with the suspension set high, it is a pain to dive deep in to menus to check where the car has decided what level it wants to be at.I've never had an S with 8.x but I really wish there was a clear indication of what level the suspension is at, and a clear way to raise/lower it vs diving 3 levels into the menus. My audi allroad was perfect in that regard though the other air suspension audis also bury the menu elsewhere, but *those* aren't at risk of jamming the nose of the car into the ground if they're on low.
I have been told by multiple service tech that the MCU1 and MCU2 are quite unique in tern of connectivity with the car. According to the tech, unless there is a new MCU, it is not possible to retrofit. They have also claimed, Elon did not promise the upgrade, he said yes to LTE upgrade only.
No way. He's referencing the whole comment about there being a lack of MCU1 functionality. The LTE upgrade isn't going to fix that. If he's only referencing the LTE upgrade part then he's either a total dumb ass or a pathological liar. I'm going to have to go with the later.Lol i just read that post again. You are right. Elon is referring to LTE upgrade.
So I will still have to cling to V8 for as long as I can. It doesn't appear V10 (or V9, for that matter) has anything compelling for my car.
