    Routing is no good. I have to use google maps on my phone because at least that takes me on a route that will get me some 5-15 minutes quicker than Tesla Nav. Really looking forward to this weekend. Gonna be a good one.

    Have you changed the rerouting settings?

    Or, as the case may be, the car may "see" a SR 25 road sign and misread it as a 25 mph speed limit sign, overriding the db's 60 mph info. This happens routinely on a road near me.

    Yes, it's essentially the same software as the M3 more or less.

    Curious if it is easy to tell the difference. On the 17" screen at the bottom mine says Google (map data 2018). My car was built Sept 2017 so on the old system. Does your car say Tesla Maps on the 17" screen? Anything else in the settings that clearly say it. Maybe where it shows the firmware. What firmware are you on?

    Click on the Tesla symbol at the top of your 17" screen and let us know what firmware version your car has installed.

    Says google 2018. I know the maps on the driver dash gauge is the same as what's in the model 3, where you get the little street name "bubbles" etc. Maybe the "main" map screen though is still the old nav system?


    My car has an update it's going to install in about 2 hours from now. It just prompted me.

    I got my car back from service 2014 S85 AP1 and there was software update. Installed it 2018.10.4 but the nav on the dash is the old one :(

    I drove a new s with software version 10.2 which has the new turn by turn on the icu display, it’s much nicer than my year old version and looks super slick. Cannot say if it’s better at routing as I only had a day with it.

    The main display still said google,

    Can you please do this experiment:

    Ask both your Teslas to route you somewhere far. Compare the routing to one another and then compare to Waze and google maps on your phone. Really eager to see if routing has been improved. The “positive control” is Waze. The “negative control” is the S85, and the experimental is your new Tesla. We would be GRATEFUL to know the result!!!! Thanks in advance!!

    Waypoints are something a lot of people want, but mostly waze-like road reports, plus tesla nav still does that insane routing in circles for no reason.

    You may be got me wrong - i have only S85. 100D was just a loaner which I returned in exchange of my repaired S85

    I guess I was not clear that this was a loaner and apologize /english is not my first language and sometimes it is hard even to me to understand what I want to say ;) /

    For those that live in busy metro areas like the SF Bay Area or LA, the Tesla maps are an absolute joke in terms of the proposed routes. They will take at least 30-50% longer than the optimal route, which Google and Waze tend to reliably compute.

    That, updated maps and waypoints would also be a big plus for me.
