Why is my Model 3 back at Tesla’s Fremont factory while I’m in my garage in Atlanta?...

    Minutes after my update to 42.8 (Track Mode update) my GPS is way off. Anyone else and/or explanations?

    Thanks!

    This sometimes happens after a reset. Once you start driving, the car should figure out where it is.

    If not, call Tesla, they can try a remote GPS reset.

    That's evidently where the engineers set the default location to. Once your car is out in the open where it can hear the satellites, it should show the correct location.

    Sorry about the delayed response, but everything said about it being in the garage/GPS was right. I was barely out of my neighborhood before it corrected.

    Air Force One is in stealth mode and you weren’t suppose to see that! It flies fast and you only think it’s still in your garage. Secret mission back at home base.
