    I've tried several times over the past few days to get the Tesla Firmware Upgrade Tracker (Tesla Firmware Upgrade Tracker Web App) to display on my S's touchscreen. Failed every time.

    Anyone else try this and, if so, did it work?

    It may not work as expected as the touchscreen browser cannot handle the libraries that firmware upgrade tracker uses.

    Maybe 8.1 will help.

    8.1 might help the page render, but the site really needs a mobile-friendly ("lite") version. The current page is doing things that don't work well on devices with limited computing power. Try pulling it up on your phone. It's quite slow.

    Works pretty well for me. Displays the charts relatively quickly on my wifi. I have a Samsung Galaxy s5. Nothing new or fancy.

    I think the top part comes up pretty quickly, but all the tables below take some time. The delay is noticeable, even on well-powered desktops/laptops.

    It used to work on the touch screen, but started failing around the time the tracker site switched to https.

    Ok, I had to drive somewhere and tested this, and it does not work at all. I'm not sure exactly why. I think the browser has problems with HTTP code 302. I made one change to test.

    I'm away from my car for a while, if anyone is, please try again: https://ev-fw.com thanks.

    For comparison, the car browser loads my other sites https://ev-cpo.com really well, surprisingly, since I'm using some advanced javascript libraries in the newest version. The car browser also loads my old site trip tracking site: SuperCharger Trip Logger, which is essentially the same code base that runs EV-fw.com, so I'm at a loss right now why it's not loading in the car.
