    Save that old thumb drive. Use it as a decoy since you have an SSD. If you can get it running enough to wipe the partition so it won't try to record, even better.

    This is probably totally anecdotal and subjective. But after updating to 2020.24.6.11 on mcu1 and hw3 the MCU1 performance has drastically improved

    I agree. The problem with Tesla is that they're not going to attract good employees by not valuing them. They over work them, under equip them and the icing on the cake is that they massively under pay them. You can do two of those if the other makes up for it but they're responsible for their own churn factory of people desperate enough or lacking of better options. I've had countless people tell me I should be working for Tesla after I talk their ear off for hours about the cars and I quickly squash that with "No thanks. They don't value their employees and I'm not looking to get into that type of situation since I'm not desperate for money"

    The sad thing is that I would probably be open to working for them for less money than I can make elsewhere because I'm so into the cars and want to help the company which is in desperate need but I'm not willing to put up with the ineptness and lack of control to help to make things better. The problem is that they don't want people who genuinely care to actually improve customer service. They just want Walmart cashiers who will follow the (limited) hand book and avoid customer contact as much as possible.

    Haha no web browser is and will forever be unusable. I did play around more with the maps and they still take forever to load. But using spotify and menus was much smoother

    Also, voice commands work surprising well after 2020.24.6.11, I have MCU1 + HW2.5. I have an appointment to install HW3.0 next week.

    For mcu1 that fails under warranty. It seems.

    I'm hoping that NHTSA rules against Tesla and they either redesign MCU1 emmc or offer mcu2 cheaper

    If they redesigned MCU1 eMMC, how long do you figure it would be before that new product was rolling out to cars?

    Word on the street is that a memo went out prematurely to SCs that for MCU1s that fail under warranty, the replacement/upgrade to MCU2 is $1750, but it was retracted since it wasn’t officially approved by leadership.

    Wonder how theyll stop people from getting their MCU to fail early. I would have sat in my car for 2 weeks just tapping random functions on the MCU

    You'd spend 2 weeks of your time to save $500? :eek: (Assuming that the price includes re-using your old screen.)

    Are you surprised? Tesla owners are cheap, especially the older MS and MX. Ever see the cars of the locals that are always hogging the Superchargers?

    Why does everyone keep saying its a $500" savings/difference? Using my non-Tesla calculator $2500 - $1750 shows $ 750. Not $500

    We don't know if the $1750 cost include or excludes touchscreen.
