    Hi recently received my MODEL S D. Love almost everything about it.
    My only issue is the UI is slow to latch on to a 3G signal quickly. When I jet out of my garage it usually takes 3-4 minutes to get a cell signal...Therefore the internet radio and the NAVI don't work for 3-4 minutes....any thoughts?

    Are you in a bad coverage area for AT&T? Are you connecting to wifi at home?

    My house is a cell dead zone & prior to Tesla activating WiFi we faced the same situation, so now I start Nav & Slacker before leaving the driveway while still on WiFi.

    do we know for certain that it is carried by ATT? If so, wouldn't a microcell help?
