Got my Model 3 a month ago and I love it, of course.
When I got it from Tesla, it showed 50 miles to the counter.
I loved the Satellite view on the dashboard.
About 3 weeks later the satellite images disappeared.I was left with a regular google maps look a like.
I did update to 8.5 when that came along and am now running 12.1.2.
I have read in the manual that there should be a little world icon in the bottom right of the map in order to change the map to satellite view. But mine doesn't have it.
I even got a Tesla appointment for a different issue and asked the main tech there if it was normal for me not to have the satellite anymore.
He got into my car and said I should have it. But he couldn't find it either. He blamed it on software updates. Saying to put in stuff and take away stuff.
But then I told him I had just driven a 12.1.1 M3 which had satellite.
So why did my car have Sat for 3 weeks and then lost it?
Was is a trial I didn't know that I had?
Was is a software update that took it away from me?
Is this normal to take away something that was on your car when you bought it?
My M3 was the range plus I think at the time. Second to last option. With autopilot bought post initial sale.
