    I too had the charging amperage cut in half. You'll find that if you set your amperage to anything above 40 it will cut in half (master charger maximum perhaps). If you set you amperage at 40, you should charge at 40A. Anything above will result in 1/2 of the amperage setpoint. Anything below will result in charging at that limit.

    Same here.

    I just got the usual "...we will forward your issue on to your Service Center..." reply in email.

    That makes sense. Anything above 40 is supposed to be split between the chargers.

    Our maps got updated today; the car was away from home, so it must have happened over 3G.

    I thought I read somewhere that they were going to disable that feature from the FOB and you can only do it from the app.

    I believe I read in the release notes that you can re-enable the fob method. I have not had time to try it yet.

    Yes, it's a two step enabling process, but the FOB can still work exactly how it has in the past. Mine does.

    Just another data point on Sumon in .126...

    I found the release notes clear. The car behaves exactly as I expect after re-enabling the Summon feature and disabling the Continuous setting. The fob works as before for me w/r/t the Summon feature. Also, I like the new double-park-press-before-exit functionality that was added -- a lot.

    Same here. When I talked to Tesla they said they knew about the problem and were working on it.

    Actually that's not the case. The download happened while you had WiFi access, and then just took time to prepare.

    I had posted the following up thread. Ingineer then posted a reply, which indicated that the download can't take place over 3G. (I added the bold.)

    The newly revised Summon feature works much better than before on our sloped driveway. Under the previous release the car would stop halfway out of the garage as it sensed the downhill slope. Now it exits the garage completely, stops, and closes the garage door.

    And now for the regular stats update...The pace of the reporting (or the roll-out) appears to have slowed down a bit. Only 15 new reports yesterday for a total of 184 by now - still the by far biggest roll-out after K.I.T.T. (2.9.154, the initial full 7.1 roll-out that many people still appear to be on).

    It continues to look like a very broad roll-out with the only oddity being that we only have reports from the US, Canada and The Netherlands. None from Norway, yet. None from the rest of Europe or anywhere in Asia / Australia. Very unusual for so many reports to be restricted to only three countries.

    If you have received 2.12.126 outside of those three countries (or see people from outside these three countries posting about having received it), I'd appreciate if people would report the update to Tesla Firmware Upgrade Tracker Web App

    Oh really? I hadn't even tried it because of my sloped driveway. Now I need to :)

    I suspect given the dual charger issue that tesla will hault deployment, or at least stop it for cars with dual chargers.

    Possibly the recent attention we have given to your great Tesla Firmware Upgrade Tracker Web App in our Dutch (NL/B in fact) 7.1 related topics biases the results.

    A few members, including myself, urged posters in Dutch 7.1 threads to contribute to Dirkhh's Web App.
    So they did, apparently.

    Yes, stupid of me; I read your original post and forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me. A few other people in Britain have said on the speakev forum that they have the update and I'll post the gist of yours there for interest's sake.

    It's a pity that the update doesn't have a reference of any sort, I think; the only indication seems to be the copyright 2016 statement.
