    The recent update claims you can now view tire pressure. Do you need a specific hardware version for this? My car is mid 2014 I have not been able to find the tire pressure displayed anywhere.

    The updated actually added the ability for the display to show tire pressure in metric and BAR scales. It depends when your car was manufactured, but I have heard that cars built before around 10/2014 lack the hardware to display individual tire pressure readings from the TPMS. Tesla may be able to retrofit the new sensors to add the capability.

    I've always been able to view tire pressures. It may be a function of the year/version of the car and sensors.

    If you have the original TPMS (Chinese supplier, not a 1st tier brand, IIRC), you won't receive individual tire information. If you have the new/current Continental TPMS (from VIN P50900 and beyond), you can now see the pressure in PSI and Bar.

    March 2014 and got the new update today- cannot find it displayed anywhere I think it is only for newer cars.
