Dashboard Clock Now Available

Dashboard Clock Now Available

TeslaTime provides a large clock display for your dashboard. Styled to look like a first-party component of the display.

To use:

1. Using the car browser visit dash.teslatime.com.
2. Click on your timezone at the bottom.
3. Click Add to Favorites Button

Enjoy.

ps: Feedback most welcome.

looks like it works in FF 15 but not IE9

dsmith2189 | 23 November, 2012

works in chrome too

mklcolvin | 23 November, 2012

I've been testing it on Mac OS X Lion, 10.7.5, under FF 17.0 (and 16.0). I've noticed that it runs fine for awhile. If I let it run for 24 hours, however, the second hand stops. If I refresh the window, the second hand updates, but never starts moving continuously again unless I kill that tab, create a new tab with the same URL, and save the time zone again.

Brian H | 23 November, 2012

Krudd! Confirmed, except that even that new tab, saving timezone again etc., doesn't restart the clock now. Maybe if I kill the whole browser and restart ... :(

Rumbles | 27 November, 2012

New Release.

The clock should now behave reliably.

[Its reluctance to keep time was due to confusion about the necessary url to use (an anchor of #clock was expected). It is now done automatically.]

Thanks for your support.

Enjoy.

Rumbles,

got my vehicle yesterday and tried to make the clock working today, 11/27/12. I have the following problems:

1. the clock always starts at 12:00 and moves on from that time. It never changes to the correct time.

2. I changed the timezone and Saved it, but from the worldmap picture I don't know how to get back to the clock. If I do a reload of the page, the saved information about the timezone is lost.

What do I do wrong, please?

If you are running Mac OS X, I would recommend a free program called Fluid (http://fluidapp.com). It allows you to turn your web apps into Mac apps. I've created a Tesla Clock app with it:

Congrats on your new car!

Did you click the Save button on the Timezone screen? It should have dismissed the panel and set the clock appropriately.

Cheers

Michael Emrich | 27 November, 2012

Now it worked! Thank you.

Brian H | 27 November, 2012

I still get the correct time on an open or refresh or re-select of time zone, but it's frozen: the second hand (and either other hand!) doesn't move. It had been running OK 2 fixes ago, but this "freeze" is all I get now (Firefox, XP Pro, Intel E7000).

@ Brian H

Mine was doing the same but tried this...

http://dash.teslatime.com/#clock

(from page 2 of this thread) and it is now working fine.

Brian H | 28 November, 2012

That link makes no difference. Frozen.

Volker.Berlin | 28 November, 2012

Brian H, it's designed to only work from the Model S' 17" touch screen! ;-)

Rumbles | 28 November, 2012

Brian H - sorry to hear that you are having problems. I see that you are using XP. It may well be because of the browser you are using doesn't support the animation features that are needed to make the clock work. Rest assured, when you get your S it will work properly. (Or when you upgrade to windows 8 :)

Cheers

pilotSteve | 28 November, 2012

@sagebrushnw - very nice! I tried it from my Mac (Safari) browser. At first only the super cool "T" second hand was running. Once I set my country and timezone it runs perfect showing correct local time.

Wonderful! Looking forward to having it in my car soon.

Brian H | 28 November, 2012

Actually, it turns out that I'd been using the http://dash.teslatime.com/#clock address. As soon as I reverted to the http://dash.teslatime.com/ , it worked fine.

cmlaff | 17 December, 2012

Rumbles, been using your excellent Tesla clock for the last 4 wks in my S and it now reverts back to 12 o'clock every time and I have to laboriously reset the country and time zone. Even if I "save" it I have to start over. Solution?
Any chance you can move the countries with Teslas to the top of the country list (i.e. US, Netherlands, European countries)? It's a long scroll to the US.
Thanx! It gets a lot of compliments from my passengers.

Getting Amped Again | 17 December, 2012

Rumbles - you now work for the Tesla forum! We need to issue you a 1099....

cmlaff, is there an option to delete cookies and/or cache from Tesla's browser? I don't have my car yet, so I cannot point you to it, but if you can clean up the browser's local memory, that may resolve the problem.

No need to scroll if you don't want to: Simply click on the world map on top of the page! :-)

cmlaff | 18 December, 2012

Volker,
Thanx for the world map tip. I'll try it tomorrow. I'm not aware of a way to delete cookies, clear history, etc., but I haven't really looked hard. I did search for a "history" option and didn't quickly find it. Still learning, though. You are gonna be so jazzed when you get yours. It's magical!!!

Ohms.Law | 18 December, 2012

We all are going to be so jazzed when Volker gets his Model S.

RZitrin1 | 23 December, 2012

Rumbles, help me if I missed this, but after setting the clock as my homepage, it keeps reverting to 12 noon and even then I'm having trouble re-setting it to PDT.

What do I need to do to permanently keep it set?

future467 | 25 December, 2012

it is beautiful and elegant but the hour hand is always at 1200 when i turn it on. How do we get it to keep correct time?

by the way, I love my car!

future467 | 25 December, 2012

I see other people have the same problem. Has anyone figured out how to get the clock to operate correctly?

HaroldS | 25 December, 2012

When the displays go to sleep the car loses the settings for the clock. I provided a couple of suggestions to Rumbles, so maybe some modification might fix this new V4.x problem.

I had no idea one could click on the map to get the time zone set -- I feel so dumb!!!

sbern18 | 25 December, 2012

Just opened it in the car, p2238. Very handsome, love the second hand. Can it be relocated to the instrument panel behind the wheel, or only displayed on the screen?

Rumbles | 6 January, 2013

Folks,

Please take a look at the latest version now at dash.time4testla. (And the announcement post on this forum.) There have been a number of enhancements including stocks, news and weather. And, most importantly, better support for the fact that cookies are lost when the displays shut down.

Enjoy,

Rumbles

appljd | 6 January, 2013

Rumbles: sorry the url above is not working...

jjaeger | 6 January, 2013

appljd - notice the typo in tesla component. dash.time4tesla with dot-com should get you there.

Brian H | 6 January, 2013

I noticed too, but it doesn't help! >:?

N8Tyler | 6 January, 2013

Just tested dash.time4tesla.com and it worked just fine.

Brian H | 7 January, 2013

Seems fine now. Previously just deleted the extra "t" and hit enter. Maybe the Address field picked up other keystrokes?

mcptwo | 11 February, 2013

Congratulations, this is beautiful! Since it dies when we loose 3G, is there anyway to "download" it and "install" it onto the dash (above the steering wheel)?

Superliner | 11 February, 2013

The MS already has a day/date/time display in the cluster does it not?

sandman | 11 February, 2013

yeah, but it isn't pretty. this link is basically a workaround to having a decent looking analog clock plus some other nifties. it isn't perfect but I have it on about 1/3 of the time because I get tired of the the energy meter tell me what a bad driver I am...

jukevargo | 11 April, 2013

Great job! Thanks for sharing...

c.bussert67 | 12 April, 2013

Been using this since day one! Love it. Works great! The stocks and weather are my favs. Wherever he pulls the weather info from is awesome!
Thanks Rumbles!

Lush1 | 13 April, 2013

Just tried it today and, so far, it seems to work on everything, my Tesla, my Mac (Firefox and Safari), my iPhone. I've turned the car off and on several times today and it displayed the correct time, every time. It's beautiful and I really enjoy it (especially that slick second hand). Thanks so much

G. | 13 April, 2013

On a watch or clock, the Roman numeral for four o'clock is "IIII", not "IV". I have no idea why.

Mel. | 14 April, 2013

CnJ , +1

Thanks Rumbles.

Chunky Jr. | 14 April, 2013

really nice! some suggestions...

- digital display option
- have a mode that shows clock and weather together

KevinR.co.us | 14 April, 2013

very nice! Thanks!

jjb94941 | 22 November, 2013

Very cool indeed! Thanks.
