    Keep getting "slacker unreachable" error. 3g is fine and I'm getting browser and traffic data but now Slacker.

    Been spotty for me this weekend too... slacker song 'loading errors' having to hit the retry ... gets the song going 50% of the time... other times having to skip to next to get something to play.

    But then again, I've also been seeing an unusual amount of network degradation / dropping from LTE to 3G and heavens even the dreaded "E" edge which means basically 2 bits per second throughput. And then bang back to LTE!

    It might be a move on Tesla's part to degrade the service to make upcoming Tesla Tunes look like a more attractive option having content that Tesla manages and can control the experience to the car better than Slacker can.

    Kind of like how my iPhone always seems to start "crapping out" just before the new model is released ;)

    Same here slacker not working with tesla account or my premium account....works on wifi only...However TUNE in works flawlessly every single time so I don't think its an LTE issue rather slacker.

    +2 for this issue.
    Wife's Model X and my Model S both have consistent Slacker loading error notifications since this weekend.

    Same thing has been happening to me. Yesterday I was able to reboot to get it to work, but today I haven't had any luck.

    I’m on 2017.28 and have not seen any Slacker issues over LTE. Lends credence to the theory that it’s related to a newer update.

    I haven't had any slacker issues since yesterday morning.

    Worked fine last night, and this morning.
