Heres a good way to look at this kind of stuff. If you dont know, and Tesla website wont tell you, then no one knows. Literally, no one.

Don't expect the fact nobody knows preventing people from claiming otherwise, because...internet.

Free for 8 yrs!!!!!...? Where do you get that from? It is 4 yrs unless I missed something along the way.

Wow. What you "know" is so not correct.

Using wi-fi is always free and isn't any kind of plan. What you are probably talking about is using cellular data. That is for 4 years, not 8.

I believe the assumption (big emphasis on that work) that Satellite Radio will be free for some time period. Nearly all car manufacturers have a similar trial period.

@tedirelan

Always assume worst case scenario if you dont know the answer.

Wait a minute...how is internet ONLY free for ONLY 8 years on all the vehicles including Model 3? **We can only speculate at this point that Tesla stops doing OTA to vehicles older than 8 years...I am planning to keep my Model 3 beyond 8 years, and I would find it a bit annoying to pay extra for an important element of the car: cellular network.** How is the GPS going to work without it?? How am I suppose to use my iphone app to "summon" my car?

"Wait a minute...how is internet ONLY free for ONLY 8 years on all the vehicles including Model 3?"

The original message was free data connectivity and internet radio for four years. The car will still connect to the internet for updates, navigation, and for the phone app to work, you just won't get free radio and browsing. That's assuming they really cut it, we'll know January of next year.

Rocky_H | 2017年2月14日

@Mapowing, Also, do you realize that GPS is an entirely different signal from any form of data connection? If you have maps downloaded into your phone, you can use GPS navigation just fine even with all wi-fi and cellular data connectivity turned off. Same with the car.

Not sure where you got the information about the satellite radio. You get the radio with the upgraded audio, but you need to purchase the subscription from SiriusXM to use it. There is no "free" period as with other cars.

@COrich - " You get the radio with the upgraded audio, but you need to purchase the subscription from SiriusXM to use it. There is no "free" period as with other cars."

Most new cars that come with satellite radio come with a trial period of 2 or 3 months. In fact my wife and daughter both bought used cars recently that both came with a 3 month trial. Of course, I'm not sure why tedirelan mentioned satellite radio since we're talking about internet connectivity :)

GPS and google maps are different connectivities.

Tell me how my garmin uses internet??

porn searches of course Garmin's are freaky

patrick.herrity | 2017年2月17日

Only speculating, I would guess 1 to 2 years free and then some sort of subsidized monthly rate as my assumption is that the car needs access to the internet.

stevenmaifert | 2017年2月18日

"Most new cars that come with satellite radio come with a trial period of 2 or 3 months." True, but not with Tesla. I asked an XM rep about that four years ago and was told the manufacturer pays for that trial period. What I did get was a nicely discounted promo price for XM Select that I have been able to 'renegotiate' each year :)
