    What happened to the vector map update. I have the 2018.12 firmware but the maps look the same. Did I miss something or is everyone still waiting?

    Map is a separate download that comes after 2018.12.

    You'll be prompted in your Tesla to update but no notifications on your phone.

    Do you know this because you've been through the process?

    If you have please provide more info.

    I've had 2018.12 since March 29 and no sign of the map update you mention.

    You're all probably already aware, but the Google Maps on the big screen doesn't change, it's only the map on the dashboard during navigation that changes.

    Navigation download has nothing to do with vector maps, vector maps is a cid config away and just works no 5g download, no idea when they are going to enable vector maps, I “think” they are already on mcu2. I know they are on m3.

    If it’s now vector maps, it’s changed, right? I know I noticed the coloring is different and that’s something my wife, who usually cares less, noticed immediately.

    People have reported how it works. After the update to 2018.12 there will be a large download, over WiFi, your MCU will reboot and display the release notes again, but this time they include information about the new, beta, navigation system.

    @Jays200 You must be on WiFi to get the navigation maps download. This has nothing to do with vector maps. Navigation maps and CID maps are very different things! Navigation Maps are / will be Tesla Maps ( Maps in the IC ), Maps on the CID are Google maps and one day to be Google Maps with vector graphics which has nothing to do with the latest firmware and navigation push.

    My car spends 23 hours a day on WiFi and charging from the Sun. Not literally of course but it does spend most of its time at home.

    The pics below show a navigation route (root) from my house to Perth international airport. The intersection I've pictured was opened in Sept 2015, however, the blue nav route shows a left turn which was the old traffic light controlled intersection. This has obviously not been updated 20180404_205010_resized.jpg 20180404_205051_resized.jpg 20180404_205114_resizeda.jpg

    Keeping in mind we drive on the left over here, the small grey (gray) bit of road with no green traffic flow is the path it should take. The car will gradually slow itself in this area because it's confused. It thinks we're "off the reservation". Yep, spent a bit of time in the USA ;)

    I hate to break this to you, but the new maps Elon is referring too is for NA only. Unless your Korea and I think one other place that @verygreen knows, but it's only for NA in regards to Elon tweets. I wouldn't hold my breath internationally.

    AFAIK newest Australia maps in Teslas are Q1 2015 Navigon maps. They haven't been updated since then
    Europe has Q1 2017 Navigon maps and finally NA has the new 2018 Tesla maps

    Therein lies the crux of the problem.
    When Elon tweets that new maps are coming out this weekend etc, the WHOLE world listens and gets excited. That excitement then quickly turns to disappointment and disillusionment when people outside the USA gradually find out that almost none of what Elon tweets is ever intended to be delivered to any of his loyal foreign owners any time soon.
