    I don't see any nearby superchargers on that map. It's gonna be a long haul getting all the way back to Texas on L2 chargers!

    Are you sure you're not in Russia?

    My brother had his GPS go berserk in his Benz. The more he drove, the further north into Wisconsin he went. Even though he wasn't in Wisconsin.

    An interesting thought experiment. Which place is better to virtually lose your car to - Russia or Wisconsin? Stronger property rights in Wisconsin. More secret agent cred with your Russia screenshot though. :cool:

    I had my street name show up in Japanese on the app the other day. City was correct and in English.

    Are you making your car available on Turo? Maybe the Trumps rented it?

    I believe you may have been one of a small group that received the predictive GPS feature with the last upgrade. Based on leveraging AI and neural nets, and based on multiple data factors from your personal life, the system is predicting you will be in Russia within the next 2 months.

    Say HI to the Kremlin for us!
