    My guess would that the system rebooted itself and therefor fixed some of the issues related to the installation.

    I have a 2013 classic and my instrument cluster is also rebooting every 10 minutes or so. Started immediately after taking 2018.28.5. Still happening as of this morning.

    I can’t edit my previous post, but the SC said roughly 46% of the fleet is on 2018.28.5, and a large portion of them are having the issue. They’re getting dozens of calls about it a day, and have known about the issue for 2 weeks.

    There may be a firmware fix, but they can’t push it OTA so I got an appointment for Wednesday. I think they took pity on me since I’m scheduled for a long drive starting Thursday.

    My frustration is that I only got the update a few days ago. Why did they keep rolling it out for 2 weeks with a known issue this severe?

    I am experiencing the frequent dashboard reboot issue as well. I stopped by the Charlotte service center today and was told that Tesla is aware of the issue and will be pushing an OTA update as soon as the software problem has been fixed.

    I agree with your frustration, and it's part of why I don't like Tesla's rollout strategy. The advantage of a tiered rollout is supposed to be the ability to minimize the number of people affected by a regression by halting the rollout. In this case they're still slowly rolling out the update, as if by some automated process, regardless of how initial reception was.

    So now you have people who don't want to be hit by regressions instead be hit by them anyway. Meanwhile all of the enthusiasts are still begging for the latest update and even bugging their service center to push it. Seems like the worst of both worlds.

    Had my car 6 days. Guess I will delay any future updates for a week to be sure they are not FUBAR

    Just installed 2018.32.2 from 2018.28. I was also experiencing the random reboots while driving. Only notes with the new update was the addition of a security pin. I am going on a long trip this weekend so we will see how many reboots occur during the 8 or so hours of driving.

    2018.34 was released today (maybe yesterday). I've heard from one person that it fixes the screen reboot bug. Fingers crossed.

    I can confirm that 2018.34 fixed the ICU reboot problem for me, that makes it two persons.

    When you are at the dealership can you just ask them to enforce the firmware update? I'm sure a lot of vehicles on their lots are still running older versions

    They are releasing updates with a vengeance this month. In the last 30 days I've gotten an update notice, ignored it for a couple weeks, it auto-updated anyway, got another update notice, I allowed it to update and this morning another notice. I'm currently on 2018.34.1 and the most obvious bug is that the album art doesn't update on the gauge cluster unless I leave the main screen audio app visible. I usually leave the map full screen on the main screen. Maybe I'll let the newest update run tonight and see what I get. Tesla updates are like a box of chocolates...

    I’ve had 34.1 for a few weeks and the screen reboot just started happening to me this afternoon on the drive home. Rebooted automatically 3 times

    [knock on wood] Luckily I haven't seen any random reboots.

    Last night I let my car update and reboot and this morning I saw the release notes when I got in. It looks like the same "we have a PIN" release note it showed me after updating to 2018.34.1. That was a little strange. The About shows 2018.36.2 and I still have the problem with out of sync album art. I tried some more experiments to isolate cause...

    Main screen showing full screen map and cluster showing Media on left side. Album art matches song title. Listening to streaming 80's Hits. Use steering button to advance to next track. Song title updates appropriately, but album art remains on previous track. Switch to split main screen between Maps and Media and it shows the same mismatched album art and song title as the cluster does. Advance track again, the main split screen corrects itself as does the cluster. As long as I keep the main screen split with Media, it works normally.

    Is the "Power Off" button in the Settings perform the same function as the reboot using the steering wheel controls? I've rebooted several times, but never powered off.

    Still on .34.1 here, over in good old Germany. Had a download of 8.1GB by the car through my garage WiFi today. I'm hoping/expecting this to be a map update and maybe .36.2

    I have no inside information, but I would guess by the end of the month.

    I’d just love to get the update in the U.S. My 75D is still on 36.2 and eagerly awaiting V9.

    For what it’s worth - I had never connected my car to WiFi until October 5th. I immediately got updated to “new maps” but that has been it. Been connected to WiFi every day now at work (can’t connect at night...live in a condo w/ a concrete parking garage).

    Keeping my fingers crossed anyway they push it to me.

    Yeah it's trickling out so slowly it's apalling. Looks like they put a bit of effort in to get .40 out for the M3s, only judging from my YouTube search of "Tesla V9".
    I can see how that's really cool for all M3 owners, receiving a pretty massive functionality update after a pretty short ownership time (after all most owners only have their cars since about 6 months max), but for me who's up-traded his AP1 Model S for AP2 and has waited two years for any really new functionality (most progress was just playing catch up to AP1, and signage recognition still isn't here), all the delays start to feel like a series of overpromise and underdeliver.
    They should really restrict Elon from tweeting anything in regards to Tesla anymore, he's just creating high expectations which are increasingly harder to dial back due to imprecise wording.
    And now removing FSD as an option due to "confusion" really doesn't help. Certainly it would be cool if it was only due to the retrofit fleet size becoming too big, but with anything Tesla now, I'm tending to scepticism.

    Oh how I hate that bipolarity between enthusiasm and scepticism.
