2019.40.1 Great updates coming non stop!

2019.40.1 will included SR+ charging to 170kW.
Included improvements to lane changes and the automatic wipers.

Neural net for wiper operation now. Faster and more confident lane changes.

I can't wait!!

Wonder if they disabled the 5 tap yet :)

Thanks for sharing Joshan! That's awesome. It's like Christmas every other week or so!

This 2019.40. is the update that is rumored to address the bug where rear-vents blow hot air (95F, I measured)
I really hope it fixes it. I'm towards the end of my warranty and this is a comfort issue for my kids in the back seat.

@vmulla. If true, that would be amazing.

@vmulla - you already have close to 50k miles?

@82bert,
Here's a cut/paste from another thread.

Hi,
Just came back from Tesla service center in Belgium for the same issue. An internal technical note indicates that this issue will be fixed with 2019.40.
Here a copy of the diagnostic from my invoice :
"
Opmerking: HVAC is blowing hot air to the rear passengers ( when cold is selected ) .
Inspected car data, found that the issue is caused by faulty firmware. Update 2019.40 will resolve this issue.
"

There are other issues where service center folks promised firmware fixes, and they weren't realized, so I've mixed feelings about these promises. For that matter, I was promised a firmware fix for the rear-vent blowing hot back in Sep 2018 - clearly that did not happen. I'm looking forward for this update, and hoping it's going to take care of this issue.

Thanks for the info. Fingers crossed.

That’s a lot of miles. Good for you

Neural network for automatic driver profile selection yet? Does not even require continuous compute power. Just before starting to drive after sitting down.

Excellent. Lane changes that initiate sooner and are more assertive will be very welcome.

Future is here, right.

"...by faulty firmware. Update 2019.40 will resolve this..."
---------------

I know that at one point someone (or a group of someones) were arguing against people calling the updates firmware instead of software. It is interesting that the Tesla tech folks themselves refer to it as firmware.

@calvin940,
Let's just call it updates.

EVRider | 15 november 2019

Tesla uses "software" in the manual and UI, but there's a "firmware (software) updates" index entry in the manual, so Tesla considers them equivalent. It makes no difference (when talking about Teslas).

firm always better than soft

@vmulla mind is same issue... so annoying... I already ask a lawyer for lemon law.. my just only 1600 miles... so sad..

It could be software or firmware or both.
