And, under certain conditions, your warranty according to the manual.So if you fail to keep the software up-to-date you might find that your car insurance is no longer valid...
It’s just a part of them, isn’t it? What about Summon etc?These *are* the UNECE rules. It just makes good press to announce it first as if we came up with it..
It's great to see a Government minister who has a Tesla with FSD. I keep reading that the UK needs battery Gigafactories. As Elon has outlined on Battery Day how awesome Tesla battery production is about to become, we really need a Tesla battery factory here, hopefully with some car capacity attached.Once the Secretary of State for Transport (currently Grant Shapps*) recognises/lists a model of car as being capable of driving itself, it will be covered by the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018. That includes the following provision:
4 Accident resulting from unauthorised software alterations or failure to update software
(1) An insurance policy in respect of an automated vehicle may exclude or limit the insurer’s liability under section 2(1) for damage suffered by an insured person arising from an accident occurring as a direct result of—
(a) software alterations made by the insured person, or with the insured person’s knowledge, that are prohibited under the policy, or
(b) a failure to install safety-critical software updates that the insured person knows, or ought reasonably to know, are safety-critical.
So if you fail to keep the software up-to-date you might find that your car insurance is no longer valid...
*Shapps has a Model 3, and he is keen for the UK to be "the first country to allow hands-free driving", so this might sooner than you think.
Edit: Just to add that Shapps has the FSD upgrade on his Model 3.
They seemed to have fixed the traffic light detection in 35.5. Prior to the latest update it would only correctly display 1 traffic light in a cluster of 4, now all seem to correctly display.
So, yeah, out of the long, long list of stuff that needs fixing some bright spark decided to make a name for themselves on the least critical piece. <slow handclaps>
The eSim on HW3.0 is soldered to the MCU so not changeable as Tesla say. HW 2.5 used to have a sim card slot in the MCU so may be a slightly easier job for owners in markets that received their cars earlier than the UK.When I had mine replaced by Tesla I was told that the eSIM was part of the connectivity board & non removable in its own right.
There was rumoured to be a 35.7. Perhaps this puts back the larger speedo font for the 3 like 35.5 did for the S & X
I concur. I need games like a hole in the head and I’m more than capable of farting for myself !!
