That sounds hard to do. And boring. Light shows are more fun.Here is the antidote to V11 mediocrity:
MBZ calls it ‘zero layer’. I.e: very important functions are always one click away.
Its a design concept. Might seem very strange to the V11 loving hipster doofuses.
I couldn't agree more. Elon has sort of "Peter Principled" his way into CEO. There's no shame in admitting you're not a people person, not a business person, etc. (I just this week quit a new job I had been in for less than a month and am taking a 30% pay cut to go back to where I was a better fit.) How many businesses has he started up? There was that AI company and The Boring Company. Driving automation should be spun off so it doesn't derail Tesla. And he seems to be all-in on TeslaBot. Those sound much more fun than Tesla and SpaceX probably are now that they're serious profit-making ventures with real obligations.Let me be clear: V11 was the trigger for me to start getting educated. I would have been happily driving my car with incremental V10 updates until something else happened (I had other, quality and design issues, they were minor but still made me question my choice).
The real question in my mind now is when to sell the car. I don’t want to go ICE and, at the moment, I do not have other viable alternative. Probably, it will take a couple of years for that to happen. Will Tesla resale value drop from a cliff until then? I am happy that I bought just before the crazy growth happened (I have Raven - the last full wheel MS) so I hope it will hold its value a bit better. Interestingly, in Norway - the country with the largest EV market in the world - Tesla is not the leading brand. Yes, there is a long waiting list for Tesla but how long will that last? With all those new factories creating low quality products, bad customer service, lack of focus and constant drama? I have never owned a product with so much drama around it, even though I had Audis during the dieselgate.
There is a moment when a company outgrows its founders. It is like a child reaching adulthood - you have to let it go on its own way in life. At some point, the company needs a different skill set from its leaders and a founder, that was amazing at starting it, becomes detrimental, for many reasons. Lack of focus in early days is actually beneficial; low quality is not such an issue; niche customer base is actually good; etc.
I am convinced that, at this point, Elon is not an asset for Tesla - he is doing more harm than good. In fact, I think he should focus on automation outside of Tesla - he would be much more successful that way, without the distractions from a business that is not for him anymore.
Tesla is at an inflection point now. The chasm is full of many great corpses that tried to grow too quickly without paying attention to the fundamentals. Tesla fans are probably too young but others remember pets.com. Tesla needs different type of leadership now. I am wondering how long it would take to happen, how big of disturbing event we will have before it happens and if I want to be a customer when it happens.
Completely agree. However, it is always better to do the change on your own schedule rather than been forced on you. My concern is that is exactly what will happen. Too many things are going on for Tesla right now.Changing leadership is a dangerous time for a company as it could benefit the company or destroy it.
'Critical' has little to do with it - the touch screen UI was already less safe than real buttons for things people may do frequently during a drive (heated seats on/off, defrost on/off)Name ONE "critical function" that is "dangerous" to do now in v11 that wasn't "dangerous" in v10...
Probably this one I saw in another threadI'm not familiar with the bug you're referring to.
Not sure if it meets whatever is defined as a Tesla "critical function" implemented in the GUI, but losing the ability to zoom out from the centered map, or have a reasonable default zoom level requires me to pinch out, which then decenters the car. I.e. they remove the +/- option. The offshoot of this is that I spend too much time looking down at the map fiddling with the zoom level instead of out at the traffic.Name ONE "critical function" that is "dangerous" to do now in v11 that wasn't "dangerous" in v10...
