    Assuming it's 7.1.2.28.19 it's a wide release. Lots of people have installed it don't know if it's been out long enough to know what changed. Keep track of it by going to the end of the following thread.
    Firmware 7.1

    When and if you install it be sure to update Tesla Tracker
    Tesla Firmware Upgrade Tracker Web App

    I just got one as well. It shows estimate time of 2 hours 38 minutes to install
    It's the longest I've seen so far

    In reality it takes just 30 minutes to install. See above post on where this discussion takes place.

    I don't have a Tesla yet. Is this process similar to a Windows update? Does it download automatically and then one presses execute?

    Generally the car just alerts you that an update is available and you tap the box on the screen to install or delay installation until a later time (can't update while driving :cool:)

    Nothing so far. I am at 7.24.30 on a non AP MS 85. I have been at this build for right at a month. Previously it seemed I was getting and update every couple of weeks.

    Anyone with a Non AP Classic MS get the update this morning?

    Got the update as well.

    My car is new and paid for AP. Disabling it would require refunds correct. I dont think they would disable it without communication. But my 1st update so i wouldn't know.

    The update is downloaded silently. When the download is complete you receive a notice on the 17" screen -- and on your phone via Tesla's app, if such notifications are enabled -- and you can choose when to install it.

    Each of the 11 notices on the 17" screen that I've had since my car was new has said it will take 1:40 to install, regardless of how long it will actually take. The one that I installed this morning, 2.28.19, took 30 minutes after the prelude, a 2-minute countdown.

    After installing, please update the Tesla Firmware Upgrade Tracker Web App at http://ev-fw.com/track-reports.php

    You are alerted via the Tesla app and your car that a software update is available, and then you can schedule an exact time for this to download and install (i.e. when you're sleeping or otherwise not using the vehicle for an hour or 2). My iPhone requires me to download/install only when I am using my device, can't schedule it :)

    Do you know what build you had before the update was pushed?
