    Installing a new software update! Will update with version number when it is done. Have V4.1 (1.19.27) now.

    Only if the updates include text changes.

    I guess technically the release notes "should" be bilingual but I suspect they can get by without worrying about that too much initially.

    Woo hoo! Here's to hoping that 4.2 is waiting for me when I get home from my business trip late tomorrow night! (Doubtful, but foolishly optimistic :wink:).

    Oh no... Now instead of checking every hour for the Configure or Delivery button on the Tesla website, we can look forward to checking our 17" screen every hour to see if the software update menu appears! At least we can fill the time between the hourly vehicle checks by looking for more news every five minutes on this forum. When will our addiction be cured?!

    I learned my lesson last round: my vehicle won't be the first to update. Wait until the first forum post before going into OCD mode.

    It's V4.2. Sounds like a maintenance release again.

    Any release notes? Or is it the same release notes as 4.1?

    I just added image above. Sounds like same release notes as 4.1. Now says it won't enter reduced power sleep mode though which is new.

    Update took less than 30 min.

    As much as I'd like to see a major feature update ... It's good to know Tesla is actively dealing with software issues.

    A few notes:

    1. I'm glad Tesla is at least mentioning fixes. That's a start, at least. Wish they'd be more specific though. I'm hoping this fixes everyone's pano roof sticking issue.

    2. So it seems the "rushed" sleep mode caused a whole lot of issues. 4.2 reverts back to get rid of sleep mode to eliminate those other issues, and they're working on implementing a corrected sleep mode in the future.

    Dave, I know you literally just installed the update, but if you have any information on issues you had before that were corrected, or improvements to functionality that you notice, please report when able :smile:.

    Funny, I came to exactly the same decision about a week ago: "I'm turning off the sleep mode, and will revisit when they improve it."

    What tipped me over was that I liked -- obsessively liked -- the "pause the song I'm playing" experience that I had without the power saving. There are other settings as well, but that one was the tipping point.

    I'm excited to see if they fixed the double pressing for the roof and the windshield calibration wipe.

    Mine won't finish. I have the .31 with the 12 volt battery low warning. Service load tested the battery and said it is fine, and it is an impoper warning. Now new software which is supposed to fix the low battery warning, will not install because the "12 volt battery is too low" . I have a ranger visit scheduled tomorrow for this and some of my due list. I'm sure they will sort it out and make it right.
