    We are already at 2019.06 (6th week of the year) or about 8 weeks from the 2018.50 release. Could be a bigger next version or lots of testing on something (or both).

    Have had that since V9 1st iteration. Just requires a scroll wheel reboot and it’s fixed. Don’t fear though it will return within a week or so.

    Nor have I (though I've had plenty of other V9 issues).
    I'm thinking I stay on the release I am until people say the font corruption is all fixed for certain.

    So, business as usual in the programming department then. Grizzly annoying customers wanting their MCU's to function properly, we ain't got time for that, there's fireplaces to simulate.

    im still waiting on:
    • working rain sensing wipers
    • text and phone support at least the equivalent of a 2005 honda
    • USB music support that can read an mP3 header
    • less than glacial center screen map refresh
    • AM radio that doesnt cut out under EVERY overpass

    • working rain sensing wipers << They kind of work, given the design don't know they ever will properly though.
    • text and phone support at least the equivalent of a 2005 honda << Yes, this is a big fail, for all the power of the MCU.
    • USB music support that can read an mP3 header << It is VERY fussy about mp3 tags, I finally got it sorted.
    • less than glacial center screen map refresh << Not sure what you mean.
    • AM radio that doesnt cut out under EVERY overpass << I don't use AM but dropping out, wow.

    Newer models don't even get AM radio. The radio frequency interference from the electric motors happens to be right where AM is and interferes greatly with it, which is why they dropped it.

    I'm actually taking it as good news that there has been no 2019 release yet, other than minor patches to 2018.50.

    In my own little nirvana I envisage Tesla at last listening to the noise from the owners and holding back from the continual stream of incremental updates whilst they work hard to fix all the little niggles that have been there for years and all the major screw ups introduced with V9 too.

    Also they are moving to a plan of stable quarterly releases that are pushed OTA to the fleet; with intermediate releases pulled by owners if they want them with the caveat they may have the latest, but these builds may have rough edges.

    off to feed the unicorn then ...

    It seems that perhaps they have been working to get Dog Mode and Sentry Mode ready for release 'next week'.
    It seems that all those break-ins in the Bay Area are damaging the shiny reputation.

    Personally, I find it simpler to live in a country where we don't steal stuff from each other, but each to their own.....

    Can you please be so kind and explain what you did?
    I'm still on high waters when it comes to my mp3 collection for the car.
    thanks
