It's only a 30A EVSE, but it's the only thing around.
Haha very cool. I'll let you keep the title of being the only one who has charged here. I am too scared that a Somolian pirate will take the car hostage.
Malaysian airline battery?
I think, This might be a bug in Tesla Browser.
Sourthern India is horizontal, so Map is not facing up North.
So I presume, that when you rotate the map, the charger location is not being rotated.
Just a wild guess.
Looks like it. For those Model S owners who were unfortunate enough to have been subjected to extraordinary rendition
It does look like good old Diego Garcia... Did someone take their model s there on military deployment? Haha. I was deployed waiting for my car, but so far I haven't had to leave her behind for a deployment... Sure wish I could take her with...
Notice the distance from the current location of 10,111.3 miles. Either the car was shipped out to somewhere in the Indian Ocean, and then shipped back, or this was a GPS logging glitch. Given that this location looks somewhat east of Diego Garcia, and there is not much else out there, I vote for the latter, a GPS logging glitch.
Either way, a plausible current location for the MS is Southern California.
Of course, Northern Virginia works, too. I should have looked at the OP. It's amazing how great circle geometry works...
Oh yeah... I didn't think anyone actually had a car there... I'm Unsure how a gps glitch would be along a great circle line.
Great circle distance is just how the MS GPS does its distance measurement (typical in most GPS's). The distance (great circle) defines a circle where the car was when the picture was taken. Because the distance in the picture is more than 1/4 of the circumference of the earth, that circle of possible current car locations is on the other side of the earth from the charging location. It is interesting that an arc of that circle passes across the U.S.
A GPS glitch can put you anywhere on earth, and GPS simulators (pretty complex) can fool the car into thinking it is anywhere on earth.
