Has firmware version 5.0 been released to everyone?

Has firmware version 5.0 been released to everyone?

If it has been released, how can I get it in my car? It was in the body shop for the past week, so I think they may have dismissed it.

It isn't widely available yet.

In the newly produced cars and some existing 'beta' cars only.

Apparently they're fixing some minor issues with it and have paused roll-out. I suspect it'll be available soon. But keep in mind it is rolled out in stages--everyone doesn't get it at once.

I picked up my car two days ago, a very satisfactory experience I may add, and it has version 5.0. No issues that I have seen so far. Love the vehicle.

I usually get new software releases in the first couple of days that they become widely available, but I have not seen 5.0 yet. I am on v4.5 (1.33.61)

So far we have seen two builds in the wild. New cars with parking sensors (or some other new features that aren't supported in 4.5) appear to be shipping with 5.0, but Tesla is still working on fixing more bugs around the sleep mode, so even if you ask for it, right now they won't upgrade your car at the SC.

@marek - be mentally prepared - even after it starts showing up widely on the forums that people are receiving the 5.0 update, it may still take weeks to receive it. We must exercise patience :)

I took my car in for service yesterday and got a brand new loaner (brown 60, leather, tech) with 5.0 installed. Tesla tech said it was a beta version/car to see how the update goes. The new map improvements were awesome. Zooming and moving the map was very smooth compared to my car on v4.5(61). But you can no longer get in and quickly be on your way. The dash 'cluster' (behind the steering wheel) display now takes 5-10 seconds to be ready. No more just putting your foot on the brake, shifting and going. Now you put your foot on the break and wait. It will be great to not have the drain, but in my day-to-day driving, I don't use all of my 60's range. But I am in and out of my car 8-10 times/day, I'd rather have the car ready when I get in. Then again, in the long run this will save a LOT of miles wasted per year, which translate to lower power bills at home.

The car didn't have parking sensors, so I couldn't test those. Also I don't use creep, so I don't know much about that update. Also didn't use tow mode. I did see the wifi networks available in the pull-down, but didn't connect to any of them.

Again, the map update is amazing.

Can u still drive without waiting for the display to come up?

Asking coz I have driven once with display rebooting on me when moving.

jeffaa | August 23, 2013

@RedShift No, you can't. You can't shift out of park until the dash boots up. Rebooting is a different story.

Just wanted to make sure that the body shop didn't dismiss it in some manner that I can't get it back. thanks everyone!

I got a message for an update. I have 4.5.

It got scheduled, and an alarm clock symbol appeared up near the bluetooth at the top of the screen.

The scheduled time came and went; alarm clock disappeared, and still have 4.5.

cb9 | August 23, 2013

Can you get rid of the 5-10 second boot-time by sending the car a wake-up call from your phone app?

NKYTA | August 23, 2013

If you turn on Climate, it will definitely be awake when you arrive.
If you go through the long (about 30 seconds for me) connection-by-smartphone after the car is asleep, it also seems to be fully awake such that you can get in and drive away immediately.

What I don't know is how long it then takes to go back to sleep. Seems to be > 5 minutes and < 30 from my short experience with 5.0.

Also, it would be really cool if the car went to sleep quickly when it knows it is "home", but less quickly when out and about, at the store, whereever.

Note that 4.5 (1.33.61) does support parking sensors. I had a loner with parking sensors and .61 software several weeks ago. The 5.0 adds distance and is a bit cooler looking, so a nice upgrade, but not required for parking sensors.
