Navigation cursor backwards

Navigation cursor backwards

All of a sudden when I try to enter any information on the navigation screen the letters and cursor are reversed. So for example if I try to enter seven the after entering S the cursor is in front of the s so it becomes es instead of se and there is no way to enter any information. Anyone else with this issue. Just started today. How do you fix it?

If you use a voice command, does it come out backwards?

Try a reboot or two.

NKYTA +1. Did you recently get V9? If you are new to Tesla, but more specifically to getting OTA updates, it is common for there to be some glitches/side affects to the update. A reboot or two should clear it up.

Interesting bug. Haven't' seen it myself. There is an internal setting that controls the direction of text, as some languages input in the reverse way of English. It is not user accessible, but as others pointed out, hopefully a reboot will correct it. If not, you'll need to contact Tesla.

How do you reboot?

NKYTA | October 24, 2018

Get in car, hold brake down, hold both scroll wheels down until T appears on MCU, for S Models.

I had this issue as well today in a 72 hour old Tesla Model 3. I hit Navigation and when typing the text basically types backwards.... so like "Fremont" would come out as tnomerF. I did a reboot by pressing the two steering wheel scrollbar buttons and it fixed it. But it sounds like it's not a fluke if it is/has happened to a few of us?

It happened to me in my S about a year ago after an update. Reboot fixed it.

Happened to me too. Haven’t tried the reboot yet, but FWIW, if you key in the search term backwards, the search works as expected.

Faced it today on a brand new model 3. Will try the reboot..

Happened to our brand new model 3 too. I've worked out that it happens when the steering wheel is turned to the left. It's as if the arcade game steering wheel controls are also controlling the position of the cursor in the navigation screen. Definitely a bug. Haven't tried a reboot yet. Will try that next.

Same here... juist picked up my brand new Model 3. Was trying to type in the WiFi password for the 5th time or so, when I noticed that the cursor remained at the left position. Same when trying to search in Spotify. Will try a reboot first thing in the morning. Definitely a bug...

Happened to me today. Typing "doowmle" found me Elmwood.

Paul.bowen | December 21, 2019

Same here. Picked up new model 3 yesterday and everything entered is backwards. Eg. 34 church road reads daor hcruhc 43. Will try the reboot. Will this delete my settings already entered (Wi-fi code, profile settings, music?).

@Paul: A reboot doesn’t affect your settings. Only a Factory Reset, which is rarely necessary (except when getting rid of your car) will erase settings.
