Software version

edited November -1 in General
New to Tesla (February 2020) what determines who and how software updates are pushed out? From searching this forum, there appears to be quite a wide array of current versions out there and while I understand not pushing the latest out to everyone at once, i would assume it would be better to have everyone on the latest “stable” version as soon as possible.

    First, congrats on joint the family.

    There is no real logic as to who gets the updates first. Over the years I have received update in as little as 1 week form its release and other times it took 6 weeks. Also not all updates you hear about are for your car. When the Model 3 came out, there were updates for things that were added via an update, that my MS already had.

    The way the updates work now, is that you will get a notification that there is an update ready to be downloaded to your car. This is not the same as it being installed. Once the update is finished downloading to your car, you will then be prompted to install it. Only then will you see what new features/improvements you got.

    Thank you

    Also in Controls -> Software there is an option to check if you have the latest update and you can elect to get updates when they come out (a bit faster, but still semi-random 1-6 weeks).

    In addition to what TeslaTap said, parking where you have both cellular and WiFi access will help. The reason you need both is because the Tesla servers ping your car via cellular to let it know when an update is available for download, and the car then tries to connect to WiFi to download it. After it's downloaded you get prompted to install it.

    It used to take longer for updates to roll out to the entire fleet. Updates are more frequent now but often contain only bug fixes, which aren't documented in the release notes. The release notes only describe significant new features.
  • Software Version 10.0 introduces updates with the touchscreen and Tesla application for an improved, all the more engaging client experience. There is no compelling reason to demand the update. You'll consequently get Version 10.0 when it's prepared for your vehicle dependent on your area and vehicle configuration. https://www.branex.com/

  • You can adjust your software update preferences by tapping 'Controls' > 'Software' > 'Software Update Preference'. You can select between 'ADVANCED' or 'STANDARD'. Select 'ADVANCED' to receive software updates as soon as they become available for your car configuration and region

  • What is the current update for MS

    You can find a list of updates here: https://www.teslafi.com/firmware.php

    This data comes from TeslaFi users, not Tesla, but is pretty reliable. Just because an update is available, it doesn’t mean you can get it right away — you have to wait for Tesla to deploy it to your car.

    And not all updates are for all cars. For example, if a new feature is specific to the Model X, that release may not occur on the S/3/Y.

    OK This is strictly a comment on the autopilot aspect of Update 2020.16.2.1 I noticed BIG differences on the roads by my home which is rural. It's two miles to the Post Office. On the way there, there is a bend in the road at the same time as a T intersection. Before the new software, autopilot took the curve at 56 MPH (Speed Limit 55...Cruise set to 60) then back to 60. On the way back at the same curve, it slowed down to 53, but never lower. NEW SOFTWARE... Dramatic difference. Car slowed to low 40s on the way there and into the 30s on the way back. More cautious? Of course, but way too slow and likely to aggravate anyone behind you...Very much a negative change, at least on that road!!

    I have enhanced autopilot on my Model S 100. There is currently an upgrade to Full Self Driving for an additional $3,000. I already have some of the features that are listed as an upgrade. Navigate on Autopilot, Auto Lane change, Autopark. My car can also autosteer on city streets which is supposed to be coming. The only thing it does not do is recognize traffic lights and stop signs. In addition my summon feature only works when I am near the car. I have not paid for any of the features other then the original $5,000 for Enhanced Autopilot at the time of purchase which was 12/2017. I find the upgrade confusing because I already have most of the features unless they are different in the Full Self Driving upgrade. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    @skrousedds - FSD represents a number of features, and you're right that those with EAP get most of those features today. Additional FSD features will roll out over the next few years that are unique to FSD and will not appear on EAP only cars.

    Here's a detailed list of the features: https://teslatap.com/articles/autopilot-processors-and-hardware-mcu-hw-demystified/#autopilot_features

    To take advantage of the advanced media features in Software Version 10.0, we are also enabling browser access on all Model 3 Standard Range Plus and Standard Range vehicles. The update will also enable streaming media access to Spotify, TuneIn, and Slacker while connected to WiFi for these cars. https://www.countrycodeguide.com
  • I recently spoke to someone at Tesla about this. They said some of the updates were WiFi only (wouldn't clarify, but said this was the case even if you have premium connectivity). ... But let's be clear, without WiFi you will still get updates, just a bit later. https://infostans.com/wordpress-development/
  • Version 2020.32.3 is installing on mine right now
  • Elisafrag, which one is, “....one of the finest versions...”?
