    Picked up my Model S with version 2018.10.6 b532133 today. Had a couple of questions:

    • The odometer still reads 50 and doesn't count up, I assume it will once it really hits 50?
    • The PSI on the tires is showing -- for all tires.
    • The WIFI is haven't trouble connecting, thought maybe that was fixed in 2018.10.6, could be my signal?
    • Where do you store the cable? Do you disconnect it every day and put it in the car? Leave it connected to your wall? How does it deal with being outside?

    Odometer should change constantly. Puzzled by what you are seeing.

    Congratulations. There's nothing wrong with that!

    Could be. You might want to get a wi-fi extender to where you park.

    If you have only one, then I would keep it in the car unless when charging.

    It's rated for outdoor so it should be fine.

    After reboot connected to the wifi fine, but odometer still stuck though. Maybe they figured out how to make the car not put on any mileage :p

    Odometer makes NO sense. It’s really not changing? I’ve seen 50 on forms but not on cars. Mine came with a low number and constantly changed.

    Tires usually only work when in motion (the pressure sensors :D).

    Perhaps you need a MCU reboot for both these issues; usual hold down both scroll wheels.

    Hm, saw you did reboot. Drive some more now that you’ve rebooted and check the tires and odometer. :D

    Finally started counting up. Think it had some kind of lock on it to not show miles until it hit 50. Went on a drive and noticed it was 58 when I got home.

    Delivery docs always show 50. They may have changed cars to not show less than ‘delivered’.

    For what it’s worth I picked mine up a week ago and it only had 4 miles on it.

    Yeah, that’s what I remembered on my X in September. I believe it had 10 or something. No idea what OP’s car had going on.

    My paperwork said 50 miles but in actuality I only had 10 miles on it. Regarding the UMC. I leave mine plugged in at home with the Tesla cable organizer. I was actually worried about wear on the outlet and plug connecting and disconnecting it every couple of days. I still carry around the J1772 and NEMA 5-15 adapter in the car though.

    Congratulations on your new car. I have found that Tesla's Wi-Fi is easily disrupted by certain devices in the home. It's also possible that Tesla used an insufficient Wi-Fi antenna in their cars - I never get strong signal despite my wireless router being relatively close. There are threads on the forum that go into detail on this topic.

    One of those threads speaks to the Wink home automation platform and how it interferes with Tesla's Wi-Fi, often disconnecting the car.
