Yeah, idunno. I didn't try it until tonight and that's what it did tonight in my car. It'll probably change with V12!Guess all I can say is that a year ago or whenever it was that someone "discovered" this and it was all over the forums, I tried a bunch of unrelated nouns and they all opened the charge port door. I wouldn't be surprised if the algorithm/programming has changed since then in some way.
One man's step backward is another man's going forward.It appears I've lost the controls I easily used which are now hidden in sub-menus and lost the cards that displayed below the car graphic completely.
Realizing change is sometimes difficult it is especially so when the change seems to be a step backward.
The light show and all the games are kind of silly and have no value but if I don't want, I don't have to use them.
Having the cards with the odometer and trip info, tire pressure info right below the car graphic was a nice touch.
I see reference to "Simplified Controls" along with a graphic depicting same. I can't locate it so how simple is it.
Now I have to go to Controls>Trips
Controls>Service for tire pressure
And so on.
Going from one button to 2 buttons to accomplish the same thing seems to be an odd solution for a moving vehicle And where the heck is Simplified Controls?
All the time and money wasted on silly games and a light show and then to make the interface worse (my opinion) is just awful.
Would be nice if I could uninstall this Christmas Update and take a step backward.
So much for that. Happy Holidays everybody!
Different, cool, silly. No, I bragged to friends about how easy the Tesla is to drive, the simple intuitive driver friendly UI, and the great Trip Planner in the Nav so you never run out of charge.I actually do like the new update. I get it, things moved, but for me, I very seldom used the trip card or the tire pressure. Just to check once a week if that. So if it’s somewhere else, to me, that’s fine.
I like that finally when you turn the signal lights on, the cameras turn on. FINALLY!!
The fact that you can now customize the bottom menu to put the apps you want, instead of opening the music button, then making it bigger to switch to another app (FM/spotify/etc) now there are individual apps and you can have a button for them there for east access.
And come on, the light show is kinda cool even tho it’s silly, isn’t that what Teslas have always been about? Different, cool, silly.
It's confusing at first.It’s all still there. Very similar to a major iPhone update. It’s confusing at first then becomes second nature. Once you get used to it in a day or two, it will get a lot better. I also predict another update soon with minor tweaks.
I tried open door and open refrigerator - neither was recognized. It was cold in the garage so maybe the computer thought my car was a refrigerator?Yeah, I tried with a whole selection of nouns. As long as they're not legitimate functions for the car, the charge port will open,
Agree. On the other hand, the Energy display is easier to access if you make it one of your 4 quick-launch functions but then the map is blocked while you use it.Took a rare 40 mile trip. Needed the nav screen to get where I was going. With the previous version I could monitor the energy use and try to stay in the “250“ zone With a quick glance to the “cards”. I can no longer do both. Also missing easily checking tire pressure when tires are warmed up. This update is a real disappointment.
I noticed the next turn shows up below the car on the left pane when the whole map is covered with something.. its not too bad imoAgree. On the other hand, the Energy display is easier to access if you make it one of your 4 quick-launch functions but then the map is blocked while you use it.
...except that it used to be at the top which was much more useful. I suspect moving it to the bottom may have something to do with FSD, because otherwise it makes no sense to be so far down. I look ahead when I'm driving, not behind! Also, it's hidden behind the climate display which is full-width.I noticed the next turn shows up below the car on the left pane when the whole map is covered with something.. its not too bad imo
Energy display is mostly useless, IME. Energy display gives you a huge undulating graph of estimated range that is not connected to your current trip at all, plus it takes the entire screen to do so. The odometer cards gave you a nice succinct Wh/mi for the current trip, since the last charge or since resetting the trip odometer. plus you could easily leave them up the entire time.Agree.
