    Maybe this is old news, but I've been getting much faster internet. I've loaded pages in my browser I'd never attempt to load in the past. Tesla Waze is kinda just like Waze now. This came after my internet stopped working and I rebooted my screen, but I've rebooted the screen many times in the past. When i saw the V9 pics of satellite maps, I thought that maybe they increased speeds to accommodate that bandwidth hog.

    Full screen satellite maps have been available for years. I suspect that changes made in recent updates to the rendering engine has improved display times.

    Thanks Derek. I must’ve turned satellite off and never looked back. Good insights on the rendering engine. That’s good news if so.

    No sir. Read view only. I have navigation and the browser at the same time. The site helps point out the hazards, police, police hot spots, speed camera's etc. No place to interact.
