Suggestion: Next time one of these threads gets opened, add a comment in the post directing people that receive the update to rate the first post "Informative" (or something) as opposed to simply posting "Got it" messages. That might keep the signal to noise ratio high on discussing the new features, bugs fixed, and bugs introduced in the release, and also give people an easy way to see how widely distributed the release is (for those that don't check TeslaFi or ez-fw (or whatever it is)). I guess you would miss the geographical information and the actual speed of the rollout, and I suspect people would probably just post anyway...but if you think it's worthwhile to give it a shot, please do.

Anyway, I got the update myself this morning :)

Something I noticed is that AP seemed more willing to take a particular exit/interchange ramp at a higher speed than it has in the past (which is good, because I had been potentially holding up traffic). The real test will be on my afternoon commute as the opposite ramp (where the speed limit goes up from 65 to 70) is particularly problematic, as even though I set the TACC to 73, the car insists on going no more than 60mph, even though the curve is very gentle, and in fact for a pretty good section, perfectly straight. I have no option but to step on the accelerator to avoid getting rear ended on this section. I'd be very happy if that was addressed.

@NOGA$4ME since we are trying to figure out how it gets sent around (until the unicorn v9 version comes out) people tend to post where they are getting it from. But I agree there should be some way to say what region or something maybe an icon or something? or maybe that's what tesla fi should do for us. I got it also in central Florida :)

Got it here in FLA...

It does return the Slacker playlist function if you are signed in on the Slacker Premium account.

Getting set for the morning drive (80+ miles), so we shall see how it goes....

Granted, not all M3OC users contribute to TeslaFi, but they also don't post in this (or similar) threads, so I think this would give you a pretty good indication of geographical distribution if this is interesting data:

https://teslafi.com/softwareMain.php?detail=FleetUpdates

This will break down this particular release and give you sortable fields as well:

https://teslafi.com/softwareMain.php?detail=2018.36.2 ac4a215

I don't know if you have to be a TeslaFi subscriber or not to access these links...maybe a non-subscriber can check. If these are open to anyone, then I'll add another suggestion to put the above link into the first post of the new threads devoted to S/W releases.
