    Tweet came into being Monday, March 26, in the year of our lord 2018.

    "... starts rolling out this weekend"

    So that must be.... the coming weekend!

    (Ref "this".)

    If he had meant that the rollout began just the weekend before his tweet - you know, just hours before - he would've twatt "that", or "then". Or "was". > Past Perfect Continuous.

    'Twatt'? Now *that's* a new one... :D Love your last line, as that applied to most 'grammer' on the Internet. Need to send that to a librarian friend of mine...

    But, please, it's tweeted. :p As I'm sure you know.

    One way to tell whether anyone is a regular reader of UK tech news site The Register.

    Didn’t Elon promise about 4 years ago that their Nav would learn from the million of route miles? Or am I confusing that with the AP?

    Technically, we've all had it for ages, you just can't see it or use it ;)

    Shouldn't we assume this would be in the next update, 2018.12, perhaps (who knows what numbers for MCU1/MCU2, etc.)....?

    I was just browsing around tesla maps site and what do you know, the maps update is already there waiting to be pushed. NA-2018.6-706 (dated Jan 2018), a 5G download. Based on valhalla like the earlier maps I played with back last summer.

    So who's going to be the first brave soul to install them and shoot us some video ahead of the trickle that would start over the weekend I presume? ;)

    just rsync from the maps server, that's the easy part.

    Now to install you either need to root the cid or extract the maps sdcard to write the data there directly. Both are hardly super easy options for regular people, I guess.

    Will it automatically start using them if you put them on the SD card, or do you have to change a config value as well?

    It'll start using them automatically (maps data contains a variable that controls what map engine to use, so you really just need to provide the map data and you are good to go).

    How about those HD maps that you reported some time ago that they uploaded for CA and a coast2coast route, did you ever see any changes to that or other HD maps uploaded ?
