Is Tesla secretly downloading V9 software before official release?

    I just got my car yesterday, but within 10 hours my car has downloaded over 3GB data over my home Wifi alone... There is no update and music are all streaming using LTE. I know V9 software is around the corner. Is that possible Tesla is downloading the software secretly so that when it is officially released, people can quickly install it which is a big plus for user experience? I'm just guessing lol

    All updates get downloaded "in the background" and sit in the car until the update is verified. By the time you get the notification in the car or on your app, the update has already been downloaded and is sitting there just waiting for you to hit go. So I don't know why V9 would be any different. There would be no reason to start downloading it well in advance, and in fact, I can think of many reasons why they wouldn't want it to, mainly because they will want to roll it out to a limited set of early people, and then there may be some patches and bug fixes. So the software will likely change anyway, so downloading it advance would simply be a waste of bandwidth.

    Thanks for the input. I just got my car yesterday... So what is the over 3GB download about? I don't think map cache can take over 3GB or any music, what is the car downloading?

    Mine has been connecting to "daws.tesla.services" for hours last night. Apparently that server hosts map tile data used by autopilot.

    I just got a 5.3GB download a couple of hours ago. Biggest yet, I think! No notification yet, but this seems like more than just maps...

    How are y’all tracking bandwidth per device on your router?

    Could be updated map files, etc, but you never know, twas supposed to be this week. Another thread or two similar to this one I think as well.

    What tool are you watching your network traffic with? I've got Fing, and Orbi, but neither are good at watching specific bandwidth.

    Thanks - wish I had the ability, but done with giving and letting Google skim so much information about me and my private life.

    No love for MB, just a bit of jealousy after learning of a sibling coming and you spending some time with the P this past weekend.
