I just got a new update again this morning. Can't figure out what/if anything changed though - I will use navigation this morning & see but at first glance the navigation interface & look doesn't seem to be different. I got the scroll wheel update last week & the release notes don't show anything new on this one but I know that doesn't always mean anything. Here is my newest firmware build:

Have the same update. Haven’t had one in theee versions. Besides the back heated seats the backup cam update is pretty amazing... other that that, don’t see anything different from other’s details on .12.

Dumb question amnesty: if I don't have EAP and the update deals with only EAP issues, will I still get the update?

Adding to the dumb question queue: Do I have to be on wifi in order to get an update?

no. currently the only wifi the Model 3 can connect to is at the Tesla service centers. so most owners/cars are getting their updates over LTE.

Finally got an update last night.

I went from 2018.4.18 to 2018.12.1. I got the UI changes, AEB to 90MPH, heated rear seats, much better looking backup camera quality, it does seem like some autopilot improvements and perhaps something else I am forgetting?

Granted, this is all my opinion, but it does seem like there was a lot less ping ponging back and forth in the lane as I used autopilot on my way to work today; however, there are a few spots on a rather mild swooping turn that autopilot normally disengages. It still does. Not a big deal, but was really curious if common disengage spots would get better.

2018.12.1 just got 8 updates today on TeslaFi. There's a chance that this could go fleetwide shortly.

In addition to everything mentioned above, it appears that lane change is smoother on autopilot with the most recent update.

I got the 2018.12.1 yesterday morning(Prev 2018.4.19), Back up camera is fixed! Always hoped for that. Autopilot I guess is better? Still a bit drunk, maybe slightly better. 2016 AP1 Model S from memory seemed so much smoother in its motions. Also Phone connecting to unlock and disconnect charger MUCH better, no hiccups yet. Being able to change the autopilot setting and speed on the wheel is HUGE to me. Best part of update IMO.

We need to request that we can install update from the app. If I'm at work and it's raining, I shouldn't need to run out to the car to start the update!

Same. Only thing from the release notes for me (non-EAP) is the scroll wheel for cruise. They made a big deal that you can adjust the mirrors and steering wheel with the rollers, but it's always been that way. Unless I'm nuts. Am I nuts?

You're not nuts -- it makes no sense that the steering wheel and mirrors were in the release notes!

Got update when I picked up my car. Only real change I see is the steering wheel buttons. I haven’t test driven the adjustment via steering wheel... yet.

Mirror adjustments are done with one wheel now instead of both.

Ahh -- reading comprehension failure on my part. Ok this makes sense to move it all to the single scroll wheel and have an on screen switch for left vs. right.

Picked up my car yesterday, took me 200 miles before I realized it came with 12.1 when I bumped the scroll wheel on accident when in autopilot

Thats the beauty of updates!

So my question is will the right scroll wheel adjust my cruise speed even though I am non-EAP? Guess I'll find out soon enough.
