    Delivery Problems?

    A couple of people on the Tesla owned fora have been disappointed at the last moment when Tesla informed them their cars were not in fact ready - the cars were apparently not even at the designated delivery center. This was at Costa Mesa and Marina del Rey, California delivery centers. One of...

    V9 Autopilot Confidence, Behavior in "Unsupported" Situations

    I've been on v9 for a couple of weeks now and my initial impressions of autopilot were positive. There were several spots where I was forced to take over routinely and things were fairly consistent. However, after a couple of weeks of new roads & tests (I'm constantly using it) it has honestly...

    Autopilot in the Rain, Dark

    Had our Mod 3 for 3 weeks already and last night we got caught in the rain, at night. And we are talking Florida rainy season rain, quite moderate for what sometimes you experience in SW Florida but it was our first serious 'weather' situation since purchase. It didn't take long for me to become...

    Autopilot speed change on curves

    I updated (quickly) from 18.14 to 24.7 (for one day) to 26.3. At 18.14 autopilot behavior around curves (or at least the particular ones on my commute) was good. In particular, there is one off-ramp where the speed limit transitions from 70 (on the one highway) to 65 (on the other) around a...

    Autopilot - lane changing & max speed issues

    I took a trip into Saskatchewan from Edmonton this past week and noticed that once I got about 20 km out of Edmonton on highway 16 heading towards LLoydminster, autopilot would no longer change lanes when I flipped on the signal. It is a divided highway with two lanes in each direction with...

    Autopilot Centering between Lane and Exit Ramp

    Just got my Model 3 yesterday! Super fun to drive. Last night I drive down I93 to Boston and noticed that when the exit ramp diverges without a lane marker, or when an entrance ramp comes on without a lane marker the car tries to center between the lane and the ramp. No a big problem for...

    Autopilot After Delivery

    Hey everyone, I had a question mainly for the time prior to delivery. Lets say that you configure your car without autopilot, but decide few weeks before delivery that you would like the feature. Does anyone know if Tesla would allow you to add EAP since it's just a software update before or...

    Feature idea: Pay-by-the-week autopilot

    I'm sure there are a lot of people like me who want to buy a Tesla but have driving needs where buying autopilot doesn't make sense. People who are retired, people like me who have short commutes all on surface streets, etc. I'm sure some of these people will take the occasional road-trip...

    The Biggest Opportunity Everyone Is Missing In Self-Driving Cars

    Great article by Alex Roy on The Drive: The Biggest Opportunity Everyone Is Missing In Self-Driving Cars. The article makes a good point, automakers should be looking at how the aviation industry is approaching cockpit automation. Instead of focusing on replacing the driver, they should be...

    Model X Test Drive

    My friend and I test drove a Model X yesterday at the Corte Madera showroom location. This was my second time driving a Tesla (and the first time for my friend. We were both excited and nervous about traveling so far in an ICE car to drive an EV. Unfortunately, traffic was so bad. We were...

    Auto Pilot Question - Used Cars

    So I see a lot of information an pricing on auto pilot but I still have some questions. I am a bargain shopper and the model 3 is suppose to be for the masses. So my questions are If I buy the auto pilot upgrade the 5k(EAP) and the 3k(FSD) upgrades are those tied to the car? Can I upgrade to...

    Model 3 Autopilot and Self-Driving

    I am all in on Model 3, but one thing has confused me from the jump: autopilot. From what I understand ALL Model 3's will have the autopilot and full automation hardware, but you have to pay to unlock the features. So my questions are 1. is that the case or is there special hardware that the...

    Is enhanced autopilot required for the speed limit chime?

    My mom has AP1 in her MX and one of the best features is how you can set a speed limit chime that will let you know when you've exceeded the threshold you've set. Also it will rumble the steering wheel when you drift across the lanes. Is the $5k EAP upgrade required for these features or is it...

    Collision avoidance path determination

    As the autopilot software becomes more sophisticated it seems like the vehicle should be able to plot the safest path in order to avoid a collision. The system should be able to control steering, braking and even acceleration as needed to follow this path. Since Elon stated in the unveiling...

    Sterling Anderson being sued by Tesla

    Well well well. Ex director tried to steal autonomous driving data and got sued by tesla. I think it's safe to assume why Tesla hired Chris Lattener from Apple as the director of autonomous driving. Poor Sterling...

    High precision positioning in SpaceX satellite constellation?

    Model S / X Referral Program

    For current Model S and Model X owners, the referral program has been started up again. For those unfamiliar, current owners have a referral code to share with potential buyers for $1,000 off a new S/X. In turn, each code that is 'cashed out', the current owner can earn a variety of things...

    AP Cameras as Dashcam

    Having read some articles on various dashcam installations for the Model S (all of which are more or less messy), I was wondering if the function of these cameras could not be fulfilled by the already installed cameras for autopilot/autonomous driving. All it would require is to add recording...
