    Seems similar to Model 3 on 10.5 with the lane guidance bubbles. Is that different from the previous S version? (never had an earlier version of 3 software to compare either)

    Could you post a video of moving around the map on the center display?

    For a video like this where we want to hear the audio, I think it would be a lot better without the radio blasting ;)

    That said, thanks for the upload, looking forward to getting the update.

    Yes, but it requires manually downloading the new maps and setting the car to use those through root.

    Is the new Tesla vector map only for the CID display? What maps the MCU uses?

    **EDIT - reached the end of the video, but would be interesting to see more about the preformance of the big screen with Tesla Maps. @BigD0g, IIRC, you're on old MCU, right?

    Interesting I'm wondering how they have decided to show all those "bubbles" with street names that are not where you are going, maybe I'm too used to gmaps but it seems weird.

    Also, have they dropped the exit signs completely? I kind of like those ...

    Applying it now. Sitting at superCharger. Can confirm you can't apply update and charge at the same time....

    Correct, you can't charge while the update is installing. So don't park in a Supercharger spot to do it.

    Also, you won't get the new maps yet, those will come later.

    Just finished applying it, and it took about 25 minutes. When I finish charging will post what new things I find.

    @BigD0g thanks for posting. Looking forward to some more videos.

    Just curious.... Seems like you have an update pending since the yellow clock is shown on your screen. What new version will that be since I assume you're already on 2018.12?

    Looks like the blue bubble is what road you’re on, and the others are just FYIs on what intersecting/crossing roads you’re about to go past...?

    Thanks for the preview.
    Very nice enhancements indeed. Focused on security (clearer direction mean less hesitation and dangerous last minute manœuvres or getting angry for missing an exit)
    So no new features like waypoints?

    No, no changes at all on CID side, this is pure IC navigation.
