    This change was actually added in 2018.4.1
    I'm in the same boat as @ILLCOMM. API used to show my car as 2.0 and at some point it changed to 2.5. I'm *not* yet on 2018.4.5.

    No way! Thank goodness someone else can corroborate. Although I saved the data the last time I called the API so I know I am right, I figured folks would claim I made this up.

    BTW, I am still on 2017.50.3. I don't know what update failed for me a couple days ago, but I assume it was 2018.4.5.

    2018.4 update + app update seems to add automatic seat heaters and turn on all cold weather functions during preheating when cold.

    Wish they added a way to opt the individual features off in app Settings though. Not that it matters much connected, but when disconnected it may be a waste of range if not needed.

    I’m at a SC now dealing with some issues - the firmware update is failing when being applied by them. They’ve stated that it appears to be a widespread problem...

    Said this elsewhere.... I don't get it at all.. why do you want the windshield warmed up or steering wheel, when all you really want is the cabin heated (air) and the battery? I never run the steering wheel heat for more than a few minutes. And which seats does it do, the driver only? :D Need to check this out when we all get 2018.4.x

    The iOS/Android updates that are following 2018.4 say they allow you to turn on defrosting. However, this is false. They turn on automatically, like the battery heater. What is updated is now you can see the status of defrosting and a subtle UI hint for the defrosters (subtle red tint).

    Ignore the fact that it's warm inside my car, I forced the app to show these.

    I’m glad you posted this. I have AP 1 and wondered why auto wipers were so exciting to everyone. I didn’t realize AP 2 didn’t have them. Surprised it took so long.

    2018.4.1 onwards has had the best behaving braking in stop-start traffic I've ever experienced. Previously I had to leave the car distance setting to 7 otherwise it would always pull up gradually and at some stage brake too hard in a very unnatural way. Now at setting 1 I can even tailgate and it can pull up in the smoothest fashion ever. Probably still shy of what a decent driver can achieve but substantial progress.

    Totally agreed. I see noticeable control algorithm improvements. Not convinced there’s any recognition changes since 2018.2 but definitely it seems to use its data a lot better.

    Not very unlikely that there are "hybrid" 2.0/2.5's out there, @ILLCOMM. See this post, and note that the invoice reads: "Reviewed vehicle logs and recommend the left front repeater replacement"
    Cruise Control Disabled?

    (Did he have a 2.0 side repeater before?)

    what's up with the release numbers?
    It's now week 06

    I assume there is not a proper WK6 build available yet; so they are patching the Wk4 build still.
    Somewhat unedifying.

    2018.4.7 is going only to AP2.5 so far. Make of it what you will. I think Tesla is finally getting serious about this side repeater NN and is attempting to actually get it working. I am really unsure why they are so ham fisted about these things because EAP/FSD rollout just seems clumsy and slow to me.
