    Hi

    I use a USB drive to listen to my favorite songs.
    The other day I wanted to replay a song I listened to the previous day. So I selected BROWSE => recently played in order to pick that particular song. Since the songs are chronologically sorted/grouped (today, yesterday,...) I noticed that there were already a bunch of songs listed being played TODAY. The funny/strange part is that the car hasn't been used before on this day. The song I was looking for was listed in the group of YESTERDAY's played songs. I had to scroll down about 70-80 songs.

    Once I noticed this behaviour I started to monitor it closely and it's not a one-time issue but occurs constantly.

    Anybody else observed the same ?

    I think you are describing a bug that has been reported in Firmware .236 or maybe was it .239. What firmware are you running?

    I called Tesla Tech Support because I was having the music playing when I opened the door problem. We got to talking about other bugs that were happening with the update and he mentioned this one.

    yeah. This is not really a bug. It's "a feature". The cars software har become so intracate that it has crossed the line between specialized and generalized AI. The cars feels the need to listen to music while parked, and as a safety feature it's not allowed net access so it has to listen to the stuff that's on local media, over and over again for entertainment.

    I can understand that. I do have an amazing collection on the USB..

    But on a more serious note: I noticed the same. I got several full Springsteen shows on my USB, each about 3 to 4 hours long. I start a new show, park the car, do some shopping, come back and have to listen to the encores. Not a very big deal, but annoying nonetheless.

    Super obnoxious bug; the bigger problem is, it's undoubtedly draining power.

    Well, I've noticed this on .245 now. Seems to finish playing whatever album I was listening to. Don't have repeat on and it seems to stop after the last song.

    It's especially bad when you are listening to an audio book, you come back and find that the car 20 chapters ahead of where you are....

    That's my concern too!

    I was referring to the potential power drain, not the audio book... :)
