    Hello Friends
    Please help me with these two issues:

    I saw this chart (screen grab)when I took my test drive and I have seen it since on YouTube and this forum.
    Dash1.JPG
    I can not get it to display and I note that the Owner's Manual does not mention it.
    Should I forget about it as being not applicable to my 2014 Model S 85?

    And
    What is this graphic?
    Dash2a.jpg
    I get this if I hold the RH thumbwheel down. The number has never changed.
    Thank you for your help.
    ~Larry

    Sorry, but I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but hopefully this helps. If you hold down the right thumbwheel, you will get the menu that you show on the second photo. Scroll up by one to the energy graph and 'click' on the wheel itself (just like you held it down to bring up the menu in the first place - but this time just click it). You should see a graph that looks similar the the first photo.

    Yes!
    That's it. The graph came up just great.
    Thank you so much.

    Also, you can change the scale by changing it in the energy graph in the main view. For instance if you have it at 30 miles then you get that scale. It only pulls the scale, and not average versus instant range.

    Great! BTW - you can do the same with the left wheel as well. Here is a walkthrough video that talks about this capability:

    Hello pgiralt and All

    Thanks again for the help.
    Elctrek, watch the video from above.

    I am very happy with my Tesla. These questions are not to be seen as anything other than trying to enjoy everything built in this treasure.

    So, I'll ask again about this display:

    trip.JPG
    This is taken from that video and I note that it reads the same as mine, which has never read anything different in 3 mos.
    Does it actually do anything? What?

    Thanks again and now I am going to watch the remaining Walk-through videos.
    ~Larry

    If you click on it, it will show the trip information - trip info since last charge as well as the trip a and trip b counters. The actual picture you're looking at is just a graphic to tell you what it is you're selecting.
