Waiting until I get 5.9 to really start messing with it
Where are you located?
- - - Updated - - -
I settled on openchargemaps.org non North-America locations .. it's the most comprehensive worldwide and works "ok" in the browser. Here is the URL I'm using:
If there is a way to pass Lat/Long, trigger geolocation automatically, or get bigger buttons, let me know. Here is their API page: http://openchargemap.org/site/develop
Also here is their web app page, but it doesn't seem to work through frames in my site: http://openchargemap.org/app
I'm in Denver metro, but I'm still waiting for 5.9...
That explains it, Thanks for clarification. I am on 5.8.8, is there anyway, I can pull 5.9 or the only way to get 5.9 is to wait for firmware upgrade notification from Tesla?
You should be able to bring it in to the service center so they can upgrade it for you.

Well there you go Feel free to bug your service center to upgrade you

I like it, simple and useful
Well done Jared, like it and use it on my car
Sorry if you guys have experienced some time issues, Google was cutting me off. I switched to Free Time Zone Database & API | TimeZoneDB .. let me know if you have any problems with the clock now!
Wow, over 1300 Teslas have connected to the site so far... a rewrite is in the works btw.
Hey, QuickTesla, and myself, made the news!
Tesla Opens 100th Super Charge Station - My9 New Jersey
Jared, just tried your URL, very nice! I really appreciate your work and have bookmarked it in my cars browser so will always have it handy.
I am finding this to be a real "go to" app for my Tesla and really appreciate the work you've put into it. That said, I have some points/problems/issues I'd like to point out. Perhaps they've been pointed out previously and/or you're aware...if so, I apologize and please ignore.
1)The main thing I go to the site for, usually, is the Radar. Unfortunately it may be the most wonky bit of the app. it is nearly impossible to tell, from the thumbnails, which region is which unless there is obvious coast line. I'm in the Midwest and the only chance I have of hitting the right one is by identifying a distinct cloud formation on the full US map and then finding it on the thumbnails. Can they be labeled?
2)Again, with the radar, when you do open a radar image it is cropped in the half-screen. I can open to full to view, but if I want to keep it open while accessing other features I again lose it. I can try to scroll up, but that never seems to work and just causes the site to kind of crash and lock up.
3)I had an issue the other day when viewing radar where I tried to go back, then hit home and had partial screens of the home page on the left, that was unusable, and radar on the right, that was unusable...no amount of refreshing or hitting of the home buttons fixed that. Finally had to go to a whole new web site, load it, then go back to qtes.la.
I think there are a few other things...the news feed can be wonky. But I dont' use it a lot.
Thanks for the feedback! Yeah I'm in the process of trying to get the whole web app rewritten and redesigned. It's taking quite awhile since I am recruiting help with the more advanced web infrastructure and doing it in my spare time.
I will consider removeing the gif radar loops completely and use geolocation with dynamic loops from an API. This is how the site works outside of the US (but the API costs me money). I can at least consider center-scaling instead of center-cropping the loops, or allow scrolling somehow, but the tesla browser basically doesn't support touch-scrolling of embedded scrollviews.
The scrolling on the browser is pretty terrible in general. I have had other people reboot the computer to improve the web browser (holding down both scroll wheels on the steering wheel).
Thanks Jared, I don't wish for my concern to be seen as a complaint, just a data point. I appreciate your hard work on this and realize there are costs and time issues and that you have other priorities. I still think it's a great idea and hope it continues to grow and improve.
Its a cool initiative. Perhaps i'm old but the news section could use a bigger font. Also if you can pull the hourly weather from Forcast.io that would be great.
Jared, is there a way to change which screen it defaults to? I would prefer to go straight to weather. Frankly, I don't have a need for seeing the clock.
Thanks for putting this together. It's a great site!
Yeah that should get fixed when we move to a more modern implementation
Thanks for this convenient page!
For some reason, my clock is always four hours ahead. I'm in Quebec (same time zone as New York.) The location is being detected properly, at least for Weather, so I'm not sure where the problem is.
Just found this thread... I like it! Weather radar was something I was hoping Tesla would add to their Maps app.
Also agreed on the skeuomorphism; ever since iOS 7 the chrome on the Tesla display has looked dated.
