    Didn’t see anything in the app when I got it from the car side. Remember there’s a lot of energy functionality also and unless you have a powerwall and maybe panels and who knows a roof lol we can’t see what’s new.

    As for the release itself (18) it’s out early but probably to fix the broken heated steering wheel, etc.

    Some functionality on the app may not be visible until the car is on the right firmware, which has happened in the past. That said, you are probably right and it’s to fix other things.

    It's there, though it doesn't show up in all the views for some reason.

    Yeah, it’s in version list but not in fleet view. I’ve entered a bug ticket for it.

    So, this was a special case, James tells me. The owner signed up today with 2018.18 already installed. In those cases he can’t tell when it was installed so it doesn’t show in the timeline view.

    Obviously we can here assume he got it at the SC in the last 24 hours or something is really weird; it’s not like ev-fw.com where it can be a typo, either.

    I would maybe assume he/she got a car delivered with it. Usually updates installed at the SC tend to trickle out to at least a handful of other cars.

    My loaner Model X here the Uk just got this. Nothing new in the release notes and I can’t connect the app so this post is not not much use!

    It's still only 1 car, and it's in Norway. :eek:
    And less than 5'000 driven.

    I thought Passive was defaulted off in Europe (and the UK) for some time now. Yeah, this may just be out a bit early for some of the bug fixes they never tell you about in case you didn’t know you had them! :D

    I was in my SC today. They are now aware of heard wheel issue and he said there was definitely a fix coming prior to my Thursday service appointment.

    Yes, the heated steering wheel fix is supposed to have been in 2018.18. :D We need someone to get it that has the heated wheel to verify this.

    This is what we mean, they don’t know what’s going on, usually. And the release notes don’t tell you what you need/want to know.

    Just to recap, I’m on 10.4 since March. I’m lacking a nav system that may be as good as what I get on my phone, new “maps”, and chill mode for my heated steering wheel. Am I missing anything?o_O
