    YouTube has some videos of the model s hidden menus(fake or not i don't know) that show options for those features. Also the store I was at said those features are in the works and current owners will be able to upgrade their car. How much? I have no idea. Also, I asked about voice navigation and she nodded her head that that was in the works as well. "Go to ....."

    Headed seat option for the rear are also in the works, previously announced for euro models so it makes sense that the US will get those as well.

    Now, the sleep mode she was less optimistic about, I don't remember what she said but it sounded like a future update with no defined date. Obviously the car will always have to suck some power to heat/cool the battery to keep it healthy. And to operate little stuff like the key fob receiver.

    I don't have a service plan. I've been getting updates. The rep is wrong; please correct him.

    Das ist völlig falsch, zumindest hier in den Vereinigten Staaten. Ich glaube nicht, dass Tesla ihre Politik (nur) für Europa geändert hat.

    Don't worry about your English, it's plenty good enough for us to understand you.

    I agree with GG that it looks like you were given wrong information.

    I got notice on Saturday afternoon (16th November 2013) of a new firmware update.

    Anyone got any feedback on this one?

    I'm hoping for a return to 32A 3-phase charging... maybe its just an EU update?

    Does anyone know if the new software update will install while the car is plugged in and on wifi,or do we need to activate it somehow? My car is parked elsewhere and I can't get to it for 6 weeks.

    It will download if car is connected. It will not install until you return and schedule install.
