Hah, nice. I cant wait to test emissions mode. A joke I have had with my wife for ages is that when we pass another car we make an electric buzzing sound, because we are passing electrons on them as we pass them. But, now when we pass people we will get to "pass gas on their a$$es"....literally :p

I like the climate control settings in this update to keep the car warm in the garage overnight - shall try that tonight as it should be particularly helpful for keeping the battery warm too as the charger is plugged in. But those statements regarding minor bug improvements and fixes? I wish Elon would improve the web browser problems on the Model 3 already, instead of farting around with useless pranks on the screen...

I don't believe the BMS will heat up the battery because the car is plugged into the wall. From my experience it has to be charging for it activate battery heating. However it hasn't got that cold in Vancouver to enable the snowflake symbol yet so it could react differently in colder temps.

You could be right - the battery is not normally charged while heating the interior, even when plugged in. However, if the battery is drained enough because of the interior climate heating load at say -10C, enough to trigger recharge (which is usually at 3% below the set % value), then perhaps it should be reasonable to attribute the next charge event to keeping the car warm, especially when the car is plugged and parked over a longer time?

So nice to see that we are slowing getting features that the S and X already had. The only thing left on my wish list is a battery temperature reading and power consumption number somewhere.

I'm not so sure about that. I was sitting in my car yesterday with it plugged in and not charging and it was drawing 10 amps. Nothing else was on (no cabin heat etc) and I could hear the pumps running. So not sure if it was heating the battery or not.

Farting app is hilarious. I think they nailed the sounds. I’m still waiting for the iOS app to update - the climate control improvements require v3.8.0.

Well I too am going on a Chrismas family vacation with the Tesla into the USA. Good thing it will work in USA. Just have to reboot once on USA network. Two weeks of Nav on Autopilot com g up starting Saturday!,
Make sure you are far away from Canadian cell phone towers. Rebooting in Blaine didn't activate NAV on AP for me.
