Model3Tracker.info Sofware Updates

Since coming out with the Model3Tracker.info application a month ago many enhancements have been added. Those who already have input their reservation information need to log back on and update their information. There is now a configuration section where you can choose which options you are likely to choose when you purchased your Model 3. Options like larger battery, sports edition, ludicrous mode, HD radio, towing package, color, larger wheels, type of roof etc. By sharing this information you can also see what options others in your area or within a specific region of the world are selecting. Even though over time your selection of options will change please complete section 3 of 4 (Configuration) with the options you currently plan on for your Model 3. (Note: many failed to initially complete this section but it is important this information be filled in.)

Where city and state were previously optional they are now required fields as we determined reporting was limited without this information.

Those who have reserved a Model 3 but who have not enrolled on Model3Tracker.info and input their details should enroll so they can see what other Model 3 reservationists are ordering on their car and how many Model 3's are being ordered in their city, state, country or region of the world. The system is completely anonymous as you don't even put your name or street address and even though we collect your email address to enroll it never is displayed on any screen or report.

As time gets closer to production additional capability will be available. You will be able to see when people start to design and order their cars. You will be able to see when VINS are assigned and will be able to see what options make the delivery go faster and which options delay delivery and production of the cars.

Your reservation will automatically be added to the World Map of Model 3's which show the status where in the process your and others carsafe (reserved, designed, ordered, VIN assigned, in production, in transit or delivered).

With this information you should be able to better predict when your car will go into production and be delivered.

Log on today and either update your existing information or create a new account and enter information about your reservation.

I have gone through the almost 3,600 records in Model3Tracker.info and made sure each record is consistent when it comes to the way the data is entered for REGION, COUNTRY, CITY and STATE fields. Different countries call the geographic/administrative next level down different things. In the United States it is called states where other countries call it province, region, canton etc. For the Australia, Canada United States, and Switzerland they use two to three digit Alpha abbreviations.

Australia - NSW, SA, VIC, WA . . .
Canada - AB, BC, NS, QC, SK . . .
Switzerland - AR, BS, GE, ZG, ZH . . .
United States - AL, FL, MD, TX, VA . . .

For other countries which don't have standard abbreviation in Model3Tracker.info we use the second level down (state field). For standardization we use GeoNames.org and use the "admin1" field.

Here are some sample countries and what would be entered into the state field.

Austria - Kärnten, Niederösterreich, Oberösterreich, Steiermark . . .
Belgium - Antwerpen, Brabant Wallon, Bruxelles-Capitale, Hainaut . . .
China - Hong Kong, Hubei, Jilin, Tianjin . . .
Denmark - Midtjylland, Hovedstaden, Syddanmark . . .
Finland - Helsinki, Uusimaa, Varsinais-Suomi . . .
France - Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Île-de-France, Bouches-du-Rhône . . .
Germany - Baden Württemberg, Bavaria, Bayern, Berlin . . .
India - Haryana, Telangana, Maharashtra . . .
Ireland - Conacht, Munster, Leinster, Ulster . . .
Italy - Lambardia, Lazio, Liguria, Veneto, Emilia-Romagna . . .
Netherlands - Friesland, Gelderland, Groningen, Limburg, Zuid-Holland . . .
New Zealand - Auckland, Manawatu-Wanganui, Waikato, Wellinigton . . .
Norway - Akershus, Buskerud, Hordaland, Østfold, Oslo . .
Portugal - Braga, Lisbon, Santarém, Viana do Castelo . . .
Spain - Andalucia, Aragon, Asturias, Cantabria, Cataluna . . .
Sweden - Östergötland, Skåne, Stockholm, Västra Götaland . . .
Ukraine - Kharkiv Oblast, Kiev Oblast, Lviv Oblast . .

Why is this so important? When generating reports it is imperative the data has been entered consistently, if not the reports will not be accurate. We have now changed the City and State fields to be required, as without this information the data has little meaning. Since we don't collect users names and email addresses and never displayed on reports, animinity is assured. We ask all users to please update their records and include their City and State and don't forget to fill out your planned configuration in section 3.
