    Still no download waiting on my Model S - Hopefully will get it soon, so I can play with new features this weekend!

    I think in the past they've rolled it out slowly, so it could be a couple of weeks before everyone gets the download.

    WOW !!! So many new features with just ONE update??!!!

    1 YEAR from here, this technological marvel will be MUCH better and a different CAR than today. That probably means that TESLA will again win COY 2014 awards again ... :)

    My daily check will turn into an hourly check for downloads - I hope it is not weeks!

    Just got the notice about 2 hours ago, and initiated the update. Since I just got the car last night I'm about to explode with new information. I expect the DL will be complete at about 3:30 PST. Wish me luck! I have still not received any documentation or PDF files on this update.

    sounds like a very exciting update.. now where's my dang car?? lol.

    question, where is the thread that lists the fw update history with features added/changed? i can never find that.. shouldn't it be a sticky? don't know who maintains.. is there an official tm page for it?

    thanks.

    Does anyone know what order or methodology is used when sending out the SW updates?

    My Model S is garaged in a "fringe" of ATT's cell towers such that I have ZERO 3G and very little Edge connectivity so I'm concerned that I will miss the notice. Is there a point where one can say "I should have been contacted and haven't so should call Tesla support?"

    cheers

    This might be important for Tesla engineering to know. It sounds like you expect "tap/tap" to already do that, and engineering might not know that "tap/tap/tap" does something different which solves that problem. Once they incorporate that solution into "tap/tap", it should then also solve the "auto tap/tap".

    I guess the cat's out of the bag. The update is HUGE. Remember my 40 minute update video? Yeah, give this one 1.5 hours at least. I actually panicked and thought I bricked it and called my service manager :smile: (sorry Mat!)
    I'll of course cover the new stuff in a video shortly :smile:

    Exciting. What is the new software version (does it actually say 4.0 on the screen since I think the prior most recent version was 1.15.8)?

    Someone posted a pdf of the changes yesterday, which I read but did not save. My Firefox download list shows the document "Software_Update_4.0.pdf," but says that the document is no longer available. If someone could repost the pdf that would be great. It was very thorough and well done.

    Maybe someone jumped the gun, posted it too early and it got taken down again? Sound plausible? :wink:

    And should have added that the OTAs no longer come with PDF release notes but instead have the release notes embedded in the update. Have to click the "T" to get the about car dialog. Release notes are accessed from there.

    So far is great. Door handles working without a flaw. Like the new right scroll wheel UI (can control sunroof, fan speed, etc). Car was in sleep mode when I checked it this morning - the resume from sleep time appears to be about 15 seconds or so (which is surprising as most mobile chips have a resume from suspend measured in the 300ms range as system memory is preserved in a self refresh mode - I suspect that tesla is shutting the system down and rebooting instead of using a suspend state).

    Voice command seems to work but that is in my garage with low ambient noise. Have to try it in a more demanding condition. And I am *really* curious about the improved throttle response :) Per release notes it implies that model S just got a little faster off the line! Will be first thing I test once I get out of garage.

    And have not tested the alarm function :)
