1. We're hard at work on a software upgrade which will likely take place around the first weekend of October. We'll keep you posted and thanks for the support!

  2. It's OK to discuss software issues here but please report bugs to Tesla directly at servicehelpna@teslamotors.com if you want things fixed.

Manual lists USB shuffle, but where is it?

    I've had two gripes with USB playback of MP3 music: slow loading of the library every time I start the car, and no shuffle/repeat. However, while skimming the online manual I noticed page 96 says, "You can also shuffle tracks in a playlist or repeat a playlist or track using the shuffle/repeat icons displayed below the album cover art."

    Does anyone see such icons? I don't.
    I'm on SW version 2018.21.9

    others have concluded that mixing various music file formats together will cause loading speed issues. You may want to try a USB drive with only one file type and see if that helps the indexing speed.

    Do you mean container type, compression type, or both? Asking because I have mostly .mp3.. no FLAC or WMA types of files. Sounds like you're talking about the container type (file extension) regardless of how it's compressed. Thanks.
