Glad they have the release number. One of the things I dislike the most about these ‘feature stories’ is that they never/seldom include a release number.

There was one (!) of 12.4 on TeslaFi yesterday to qualify as ‘begun’ I guess. I believe it was in Europe. And only a few still. Just getting 12.3 right now on my X. Some of the 12.4 now in the US.

Assume a few days or a week to start wholesale rollout as they are probably still testing on the first group, as usual.

Total TeslaFi for this release is 23 or so, still very low.

My older floor-bot "Zhi" is past updates. His battery
is a stoopid Nicad set. But our newer one, "Sleepy Joe",
could benefit. I wonder if he could get better navigation
around the bedrooms by transcoding 2019.32.12.4.

It looks as though this update will finally add the two features on our old i3 that we miss the most:
*Real (battery) preconditioning and
*Stop mode - or one pedal driving

note that the so called stop mode was only reported on chinese cars and didn't seem to be there in the english notes

Correct, no mention of stop mode, further move toward one pedal driving in English language release notes on the few Ss (Raven? and Xs that its trickled down to on this side of the globe.

I really would like to understand how the new one-pedal driving works with Creep enabled.

I would expect that it would creep when you let off the brake, but then would disable creep mode when you exceed 5 MPH, up until the next time you hit the brakes, at which point it would creep again.

I like the sound of that. Hopefully that’s exactly how it works!

To me, creep and one pedal driving are diametrically opposed to each other. I would expect one pedal driving to disable creep. Why would you need or want both...

I actually think it’s important to have both. Creep is safer in so many ways, especially for tight parallel parking not on flat surfaces, or trying to inch out from stop signs where you can’t see well. In my garage I have to park around 2 inches from my wall. Without creep this is near impossible. Covering the brake is just safer in these cases.

Anyway, very interested to see how this new feature will behave with Creep enabled.

I wish there was an easy way to get in and out of creep mode. On my wife's bolt it's just a quick tap of the gear shifter (which also changes Regen strength on demand). When in high Regen mode (called low, opposite to tesla nomenclature) creep is off. Too cumbersome in tesla to change so I always drive with it off and just deal with it for tight situations.

Very much this.

What? Creep safer and can't tight park without creep? That's rather subjective, old habit, is it not?
No - I too use it as @WilliamG explains. It allows much more precise positioning. I too am in a tight garage parking situation and it is made much easier with creep - feathering my brake pedal.

Not at all. I never drove an automatic full time till a few years ago. So considering 99% of my driving was a manual transmission (in the UK) it’s still a real struggle in some situations without Creep.

I agree with it needing a shortcut to Creep on/off. This would solve a bunch of issues.
