    I just noticed that after the last software update the fan speed when in range mode now all of a sudden goes up to 11 instead of being limited to 8. Did anybody else notice that ?

    The update must have turned your range mode off. Hence your fan goes higher.

    I believe turning on bio defense turns the fan to 11

    Yes.

    I posted about it several days ago, in the 7.1 thread:

    I saw that and figured it had always gone up to 11. I've used climate control very sparingly since I got my Model S last month.

    I think the fan speed range went up to 11 some time later last year...

    Fan speed has gone to 11 for at least 2.5 years (when I got my car) and probably much longer.

    Fan speed in range mode has topped out at 8 in the past. At some point (recently-ish?), software changed that to 11. I don't think 11 is '3 faster' than the old 8, but I could be wrong...

    Yes, I am pretty sure this happened with 2.18.77 while in range mode. That is when I first noticed it.
    So I have my fan speed set to the right hand scroll wheel on the steering wheel.
    Usually had it down to 1 or 2.
    Then one day while cleaning I pressed the scroll wheel and Voila! the HVAC system went into AUTO mode.
    I was never aware of that. It then selects the appropriate fan speed based on your temperature setting.

    BTW, does anyone know how to show the interior cabin temperature? My iPhone shows it but I somehow cannot find the
    cabin temperature on any of the displays?? The temp on the instrument cluster appears to be the external temperature.

    If range mode was off, it's gone to 11 for as long as I've had my 85D (15 months). Turning on range mode used to limit it to 8. But, a recent software update no longer limits the speed to 8 when range mode enabled

    thanks for all the replies. I like the fact that I can now set it to 11. It would be a nice feature to actually see the amount of energy I am using for all "non driving" activities like the AC, Radio etc.
