Try all USB ports. I have a USB hub and it only worked in the first port. When the USB drive is plugged in, the file will show up in the list to choose from as USB xxxx.

No joy here. Formated a new USB stick in exFAT. Labeled the drive as "boombox" and put the mp3 files in both the root of the drive and in a directory called "boombox". Rebooted the center screen too and nothing.

Note: I'm in 2020 Model S not a 3

I think the folder name has to be "Boombox" with a capital B. (And it can't have a TeslaCam folder on the drive.)

Note: And don't rename it to try to fix it. Delete it and create it with the correct case the first time.

2020 Christmas Update?

yea you know, that thing which only goes to new owners and not us old school early adopters who were specifically promised early software updates instead of Early Access Program invites which also never happened.

Classic Tesla, what a great holiday - it's one thing to get this update as a surprise, but when they literally start hyping it a few weeks ago it's a big disappointing to totally miss out.

And these guys

Does anyone know if you can purchase the external speaker? My 2019 Model 3 doesn’t have it.

It seems to play in my speakers fairly loud, can't really tell if its playing outside as well. I don't think its intended to play inside except during preview maybe. Will do a soft boot and try again today.

Use the volume button to turn it off inside the cabin and listen outside... I have the ice cream truck on mine, works great and its pretty loud
