    Getting into my 2015 P90D this morning I was notified that a new software update was available and was asked when I wanted to schedule its 1 hour and 40 minute download.

    Anyone know what's in it, or a link to the release notes?

    Thanks.

    Talked to a Tesla employee today and it seems the S update had a bug, the day after it was issued they pushed out the old update and now they have fixed the bug and the original fixed update is coming.

    I don't have a copy of the release notes handy but the biggest improvement is to summon which now has a customizable feature to let you set the distance from obstacles as well as how far away the range is for the fob or app to be detected. The best improvement imo is the ability to not have to hold the fob or app button down in order to initiate. It does give you a warning when you enable this. Also, after you download you have to re-enable summon.

    It's V7.1 (2.12.126)

    I received Thurs afternoon and uploaded it early this am. As the other poster said, it is mostly the changes to Summon. I compared the release notes to the firmware tracker on the Wiki and noticed that this release said there was an improvement to regenerative braking in low temperatures. That wasn't listed in the other updates.

    Cheers

    Mine said: improved cold weather regenerative braking. And creep setting saved with driver profiles.

    Basically you can customize summon now.
