    We all have our own understanding of why we don't get updates when they're released. Let's get to the bottom of this!

    Maybe because it takes a while? Okay, my turn. Why can't you just be patient? No, let me rephrase that. Be patient, it will come. Geezzzz.

    I hacked an Ethernet port directly into my car's data bus and still no update. Understandable as the Ethernet cable is just draped across the floor. Later today I'll raise it onto pyramid-shaped stands with non-combustible gold metal alloy spacers, which will boost the signal. Without that the digital assets won't make it across smoothly, some 0 or 1s will actually get received as 1/2. You can tell when this happens as the mirrors flap open and closed. For best results should the pyramids be aligned to magnetic or true north? I have not checked for local ley lines, will that help?

    they found bugs in the release and have stopped releasing it. Just guessing as to why the release is so slow.

    I think you're right @JHuberman. That picture of you running about seeking the best signal from Fremont is priceless! :)

    EXCELLENT IDEA !! And when it does work, don't forget to reward your car with a cute little aluminum party hat on the roof just over the mirror.

    I am looking for the best signal. I am on the USA Team competing in ARDF (Amateur radio direction finding) at the world championship in Bulgaria. We have to find radio transmitters in the forest. For more info Backwoods Orienteering Klub, Raleigh Durham NC

    I was notified by the app on 5/5 that I have an update available. But the car is at the Service Center. So I think I have it, but can't get to it.

    So when the next version of 17.17.x comes out, would you rather have gotten 17.17.4 sooner or the newer 17.17.x sooner? Since all firmware releases are sent out in tranches, chances are that if you got 17.17.4 now, you will get the later 17.17.x even later unless there was some emergency reason to get you off of 17.17.4.

    That is perhaps the nerdiest sport I have ever heard of. Sounds awesome!

    I know that this is a bit of an old thread, but is anyone else in the US with AP2 still waiting for 17.17.4/17? I just got my car back from the SC and one of the notes said something to the effect of, "Check if update necessary - car firmware up-to-date."

    I'm still on 17.14.35... I do have both cell and WiFi connectivity issues in my garage, but this hasn't been a problem before and, again, the SC said I was up-to-date.

    It looks like the roll-out has slowed down/stopped. Maybe you'll get lucky and be one of the first to get the next release. 17.22.x ? 17.23.x ??

    Were you at a party that Elon was also at and did you loudly proclaim that SpaceX is all just Hollywood CGI?:p

    Thanks for the feedback. Sadly and gladly (much shorter commute) not driving the car much anymore, so it doesn't impact me that much.

    I'll try rebooting just to see if that clears a corrupted DL (or does some other power-cycling magic) just for the hell of it.

    By the way, I got issued a P100DL as a loaner. Holy hell... I didn't even try launch mode and that thing was... invigorating. Definitely pissed the wife off a couple of times.

    FYI: I contacted the SC and they indicated that there was a bug with my vehicle preventing software updates... in case anyone else is in the same boat. They are trying to do an OTA fix.
