Do I need FSD for Dog Mode and Sentry mode?

    I just ordered a brand new Raven Model X. Super excited!

    It is a HUGE splurge for me so I left off FSD. Its a $6000 option and the car I am coming from had the same basic cruise control you could buy on a Corolla in 2001...

    I like what I have heard about Dog Mode and Sentry Mode. They seem like great features. The website is unclear as to if these features are included as standard or if I need to pay for FSD.

    Can you guys tell me?

    What about Camping Mode? I love road trips and I just know I will be sleeping in the car while charging at some point.

    Thanks!

    Included for no extra charge even from a barebone model.

    It's a popular request feature and Tesla has partially responded:

    1) For constant HVAC while sleeping in your car, Dog Mode works fine.
    2) For continuous 12V outlets, Sentry Mode works fine

    However, the built-in stereo still times out so it's not a true camper mode just yet.

    Congratulations!
