Its not a Model 3, but you can see that the v9 design basically unified the cars.

Makes me wonder if the Model 3 will get the "Energy" icon with Version 9.

Most exciting feature by far though is Asteriods!!! It was always my favorite game as a kid (yes, dating myself a bit here). I'll challenge anyone to high score once that is out!;)

Model 3 owners may be slightly disappointed given what I see here as we basically already mostly had v9 from a look and feel standpoint.

The top row layout changes (we saw that leak on the Tesla site by accident) and the bottom row adds a (...) to handle multiple functions from one spot... Phone... Calendar... etc.

Games!!! :)

I know this is nit-picking but I'd really like the Homelink icon to stay on the left side of the screen. At least until the auto close feature works 90+% of the time. Right now mine only works 1% and I have to click the icon to close the garage. I've been playing around with it and it seems that if I wait a few minutes before leaving it works. Like the car has to boot up to know the car is leaving home.

Most notable changes: Whole UI overhaul. Nav waypoints. An option called "Drive On Nav" for autopilot. Improved responsiveness. MAME arcade emulator easter egg. Changes to the IC (no photos, sorry) show a more pulled back view, presumably for a 360-type view for AP visuals.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present you: Onramp to Offramp. ;)

The nav options (satellite, traffic ...) are on the right which hopefully means that the turn-by-turn will be on the left. Is the X/S UI already like this now?

Really? Mine is flipped with yours ... works 99% of the time.

I’m really looking forward to this update.

My take on the nav being more front and center is that EAP and FSD are going to mature very soon and rely on nav destinations so it makes perfect sense.

As for Model 3, if the web browser and energy graphs were on the list of features to add they would have done it by now. They have them on the new S and X cars with the Intel MCU so its not like they don’t have the code. Perhaps it’s some deliberate differentiation to keep them more “premium”. Who knows

I’m very curious to see if highway on/off is exclusive to FSD. I hope not!

Was hopeful they'd bring the browser to the 3, not really sure why, but just figure it would be easy to do. it's not like we don't all have a smart phone in our pocket though. Also using the browser will just use more of the LTE bandwidth, which they are obviously working to limit since adding WiFi, and charging for LTE, so I'm starting to think that the browser won't make it to the 3.

Doesn’t look like there’s a whole lot of meat and potatoes there. I hope more gets added to the beta V9 that was described here.

If you don’t have FSD, the biggest improvement is Asteroids. I’ve stated this before, I wish they would stop working on useless Easter eggs and work on items that don’t currently work correctly in the Model 3.

Mine works to open the garage when I get home but not to close it when I leave. Does yours auto close every time you leave?

It was my understanding that the on/off highway feature would be a part of enhanced autopilot. I could be wrong but I'd expect Tesla to at least allow that. I have the FSD option so I'm very interested to see what kind of features will be released. I'd be happy if it just started reading red lights and stop signs. As slow as I expect FSD to react in situations like turning right on a red light I'm sure I'll be doing most of that myself. It will still be fun to see new things that the car can accomplish on it's own.

My logic has always been (except for parking and Summon) EAP = divided highways, and FSD = everything else.

Are on-ramps and off-ramps are part of divided highways, or part of everything else?

I'd expect this to be part of FSD because this sort of computing (getting into correct lane, etc) is more about planning. EAP (to date) seems more like reacting.

edit: Fixed typo.

Mine works for closing the majority of the time, except when I use summon sometime in between parking in the garage and leaving. Are you using summon?

I think I would only use the browser while charging which is rare for me. Do you see a wider use?

I think you mentioned this before and I replied the same way, but I completely disagree. I think the Easter Eggs and general fun stuff is part of Tesla’s magic dust. Most automakers can’t even figure out how to make and

Every time!

Agree, my fingers are crossed but I think highway on/off may be FSD exclusive.

I see FSD as being “enter location and car takes you” which leads me to believe highway on/off may be the first FSD exclusive feature.

I do see EAP getting better on city roads though.
