I have a 15 Model S 85D and recently updated the software. While commuting to work on a busy Mass pike the software locked up on me twice while at high speed!
1. I changed the screen from Night Mode to Day mode, while it was flipping I accidentally touched the screen again and it locked up with a opaque modal over the whole screen. The MCU then rebooted itself, luckily the car still functioned fine.
2. Second time, I changed it from ABC news to a streaming music station and about 3 min into the song the MCU locks up and the speakers start playing an awful skipping sound at around level 7. I have no control of the screen or volume controls on the wheel. It was extremely disorienting while driving at 70mph. I didn't know what to do because the last time I force restarted my MCU it bricked the car and they had to replace it!! So here goes nothing, pull over and reset the MCU...it came back, thank god.
Not impressed with this update, seems rushed...I should have waited for 9.1. Now I can't trust this damn car, what else will bug out!??!
