@nanimac, I was told $500 +tax, but will confirm this when I see the invoice. It is not a quick install, and I'm getting my annual service at the same time, so I won't have preliminary feedback until later today.Cool! How much was the upgrade? My car was built right before LTE was standard so am thinking of upgrading. Would like to hear your thoughts on any improvements.
Hello, fellow Hawaii Model S owners! I'm getting the LTE upgrade installed this very moment on Maui (ranger install), and was told I'm the first here in Hawaii to get it. I'll try to relate the improvements I observe in this thread. Anyone else thinking about it?
What firmware are you on? Over on TM there's complaints about update 2.5.26 broke 3G and LTE. But most fixed it with a scroll button reboot.
I just did the LTE upgrade today. Screen refresh is much faster, but of course nowhere near the speed of a good wifi connection. Map updates are quicker, but I never felt that the map speed was a issue with 3G. Surfing is MUCH faster, but I rarely used the car for surfing before, and probably won't now. When you do need a quick lookup, the increase in speed will come in handy. Cost was $500 plus tax, if you were to pay for it. If you apply the referral credit against the cost, there is no charge for General Excise Tax so referral credit utilized is a flat $500. Honestly, I probably would not have done it if I didn't have the referral credit.
