What happened to Slacker

I guess you have to cut Slacker some slack for being slack lately :rolleyes: Name says it all.
As others infer, no time limit, none planned. BUT after 4 years of owning a car, there could be a change in the future.
Likely just a temporary issue for you.

You don’t need login credentials. it’s built into the firmware. The only reason to enter is if you are paying for a personal Premium account rather than using the free Tesla account.

What does a "personal Premium account" offer over above the free Tesla account? My DS said nothing about such a thing and I have not been able to find anything online about it....

On my screen it shows that I am logged in with some obscure id [email protected]. Should I have been given personal login information or is this teslamotors.com associated with my car? My car was a demo so perhaps this is relevant ?
You don't get a personal login. Everyone uses the generic tesla account logins unless you purchase a premium Slacker account (which I have done and I actually like the service that way).

This is correct....I emailed ServiceHelpNA about this. Their response was:

"There is no login for slacker needed on a Tesla despite the login field being empty. Slacker is automatically logged in internally."

The one thing that is annoying to me, is that I can't seem to find a way to reset the slacker like/dislike ratings on the car. I bought my car from a 3rd party, and inherited his musical taste in slacker. After getting the car in my name and MyTesla, I did the full factory reset. This cleared almost everything (homelink, map history, settings, etc). The one thing it did not clear was the slacker data! It's a little annoying, if anyone has a suggestion, I'm ears (I cannot log into slacker in the car w/ my free slacker account. I cannot log into slacker w/ my tesla account).

There is no login/user-id and password needed just to use Slacker on your Tesla (the user-id and password seem to be coded already into the car), but your Tesla still should have a unique user-id and password. Maybe it's a matter of how you ask them the question, because I did receive my Slacker user-id and password as a reply to my email requesting that info so that I can log into my account and make sure my account settings include the highest bitrate/quality streaming (and I did use the user-id/password and discovered the max quality switch was not already on, and I switched to the high bitrate/quality and it is noticeably better-sounding). Seems to me that each Tesla vehicle has a unique Tesla-specific user-id and password - the userid has the word 'tesla' in it and a bunch of numbers.
