Not yet, and I have checked. I expect it will be a few days (at least), as they are clearly prioritizing the AP cars to maximize the impact of the press coverage and owner joy/relief.

From what I have seen, the new UI should work fine on non-AP cars, and soften the blow of not being part of that party.

Actually, thanks for posting this separately. I was looking for some discussion about 7.0 and us "classic" cars. Didn't want to wade through those mega threads.

Anyone with a classic get the update yet?

*** Note to mods, please don't merge with 7.0 thread, us CLASSIC S owners need a place to discuss 7.0 where AP is not 99% of posts ***

OK "Classic" drivers. Those who man (or woman) their own steering wheel. Please post here if/when you have info or opinions re: the components of 7.0 that pertain to US.

The tweet says the UI on manual pilot cars is changed in 7.1..... so I don't think 7.0 will change much.

But yes we need pics from a manual pilot car on 7.0. Mine hasn't prompted to install yet.......

Thanks...

I'm also waiting for the update. Hopefully it fixed the issues with the "Power Savings". I'm getting kind of annoyed with 3G taking 5 minutes to connect every say third time I get in the car.

I think this thread is a good idea. I especially would like to see pictures of the dash in a classic with new V7.0 software. There have been reports that V7.0 retains the dial with power meter and speed in our classic cars. I'd like that confirmed.

So far only one non autopilot car is listed on the tracker, and it's a 70D, so it has the autopilot hardware.

Haven't seen any "classic" cars report in yet. God, I hope the interface is different for us. That toy car is going to bug the hell out of me if I'm stuck staring at it.

I read somewhere else that it has a different hud than the AP cars. Another vote for hoping that's true. I'm curious about the performance upgrades as well. New UI looks pretty slick. If it's a UI + performance upgrade, that's certainly nothing to complain about.

Also, as someone who missed the cut off date by a few months, I prefer "manual" model s to classic ;) O-well.
