    Any idea when we will get V10? I am on the MX 2017. Will we get even most of these features like smart summon and theatre?

    Pending TD approval. I guess at least a month.

    Nope.

    I take that back. Reports are coming in of v10 being released in Hong Kong now. But most certainly cut-down, due to the legislative restrictions.

    i'm pretty sure we won't get smart summon since regular summon was not approved by TD. However, since Netflix/YT supposedly only works when the car is in Park with wifi, i'm hopeful this will be approved. unfortunately not many SC carparks have wifi, so don't think it will be used much.

    You should be able to get the video streaming to work by tethering to your phone or using a hotspot device.

    No Smart Summon or Video Streaming will be available with v10 in Hong Kong. Both are against the law and won't be approved by TD.

    Even "dumb" summon would be pretty useful considering old parking space sizes are drawn to cater to car sizes of the 1970's in HK.
    iI smart summon and video streaming are off the table then V10 should be approved even faster, but i guess 1 month is pretty much lighting speed for TD.
    Perhaps HK will get these features sometime next decade.

    Got V10 for my 2017 MX today. As expected no Smart Summon and no Tesla Theatre. No Caraoke and no Cuphead. No nothing. :( Well Joe mode is great if you’re annoyed at the chimes in traffic jams...and visualisations have been improved. Not sure if I would ever use the Tesla app to open windows (especially when you can’t close them via remote). All in all better than nothing, but sad that TD isn’t more up with the times. :(

    Can we propose against the TD for their outdated regulatory?!

    theatre is only work in parked mode and I have NO idea how it induce any hazard. I think it is legal to use our phone when we seated in a parked car

    We've tried TD, LegCo, and Ombudsman. Nobody seems to recognise the issue, or that progress is being held back.

    The legislation, as it is currently written, is outdated and doesn't reflect modern reality. All modern cars are illegal according to the legislation, so TD simply selectively enforces whatever they want.

    Mark, yeah thanks for the great effort.
    Shall we also try ITB and the related legco member, such as the one from IT field.
    Understand the chance is low but seems they are also relevant to the issue.
    Apparently, it is common sense the rules are outdated and far from the reality today.

    Yes, and change your Software Update setting in your touch screen to Advanced.

    Summon is not permitted in HK cars due to transport department regulations (specifically, legislation regarding the driver needing to be in the driver's seat while the engine is 'on'). I hear rumours it is being discussed, but no concrete decision yet.

    P.S. In the latest update, the games got removed from HK cars as well.
