    So excited: this will be my second long Tesla Road trip. Will be travelling from Tampa, FL to Greenville, SC.
    I have a P85 and will be taking the route through Atlanta and will be skipping Ocala on the way up. I am also thinking of skipping Macon but I am not sure about that one yet.

    Will be posting a tracking link once I hit the Road very early Wednesday morning.

    Several of us in Tampa will be excited for you and follow the tracker. @Btrflyl8e uses Locatoweb all the time and we have a blast tracking her road trips. It's super fun!

    Skip Macon if you can. It's way out of the way and has an ICE problem.

    I drive Tampa to Lake Wylie, SC several times a year, and it never gets old! It's a comforting feeling knowing other Tesla owners are tracking your journey, and many times they've provided really helpful info, like how much longer I'll be stuck in a torrential downpour, for instance. Things I can't look up while in the middle of it.

    When @Cyclone made his first road trip I tracked him and tried to help him find an alternate route when part of the highway was shut down.

    Pack healthy snacks!

    Hi all, I'm totally new to the Cult of Tesla. Having moved to South Florida, and awaiting our Model X, I'm really looking forward to taking road trips with the fam! I also need to read up on this tracking thing you guys are talking about :)

    There are a few apps for live GPS tracking. LocaToWeb is the one I like, although you'll need to keep your phone on the charger, it's a battery killer when broadcasting location! I like it because you can set a session up and have multiple people track on the same map. @LoL Rick and i use it when we're heading to a car show (or cocktails) so we can see when the other is going to arrive.

    Congrats on your pending delivery!

    It is also a great tool when you stop for coffee and can get a text message from @Btrflyl8e saying "Dunkin Donuts? Remember your diet and don't buy a donut!"

    Interesting real time tracking. Have you looked at Waze's route sharing? I always the sharing end. I've never seen the receiving end and see how it looks.

    The map hasn't moved in a bit, check the app to see if it's asking you to continue. It does that every once in a while

    Edit: never mind, it's just updating at long intervals and it looks like you aren't able to go very fast. Hope everything is okay!

    If you've never charged at Atlantic Station before, someone posted picture directions on Plugshare that were perfect. I've included them here

    I thought you were crazy for driving in the middle of the night, but it had to have been better than dealing with the traffic on I-75. It was absolutely stupefying today. Welcome back home!
