It's not just pedestrians but also cyclists that have trouble hearing EVs. Some sort of approaching sound would be awesome; no microphones, please. Cyclists already get enough vehicle harassment. And before you sound off about crazy cyclists, know that I founded a women's cycling club and coaching business in Portland, OR where we work tirelessly to promote safe and legal biking practices among our members! There. Hopefully we can stay on topic with EV speakers. Admittedly, I kinda opened the door :O


Pedestrians hate cars and cars hate pedestrians. But everyone hates cyclists. Some of the most annoying people out there.

Pedestrian Warning System sound sucks, I know we can disconnect it but I wish it was something the user could change the sound file on. You would think this is in the interface somewhere.

I could go for the Ice Cream Truck sound once in a while.

A few months ago won hinted at fart noises from it.

it’s just a speaker. Wouldn’t be hard to change the noises on it. Not from the screen, you would need a separate controller.

I want my Tesla to play the "Ice Cream Truck" music, so that I can see the disappointed look on the kids' faces when they realize "awwww there's no ice cream"

Think I will pipe in Ice Cream truck music and troll the parks in Austin. ;)

P.S. Nice D M C !
I had one way back when the first came out. Stuck out then and I bet it still does.
I think the CyberTruck will do the same.

In today's Christmas Day 2020 update, it says that I can use a USB to upload a custom horn sound to Boombox. Has anyone had success doing this? I configured a USB with a file named Boombox, into which I have my mp3 audio file. This was plugged into the data port that I use for the security cam. I cannot get it to show up on the horn sound directory in Boombox. Any ideas?

Also haven't had any luck with this! I tried partitioning my drive separately - but no luck. The mp3s show up as media in the media player, but dont show up when trying to select them in Boombox

Not sure yet. Maybe have to save the files in a “boombox” folder. Similar to how Teslacam was before in-car formatting.

Going to try this whenever I get pushed the new update. Still waiting to literally Rick Roll people...
