Why doesn't Tesla send out a notice of major items included in firmware upgrades?
Actually, I believe they are filling car owners in. I was contacted and told what would happen and when to expect it. It sounds like they are going to redefine an "ideal range mile" to match the EPA's rating.
Resurrecting this generic thread to ask a generic firmware question. I understand that firmware update will prompt you to schedule the update (default is 2am). My question is, do you have to acknowledge and schedule the update? Or, if I do not see the notice when my car is notified about the update, will it go ahead and install it at 2am anyway?
I suppose it might be nice to have on your computer at home, but it is always on the car. Look on your car info and there is a button to see new features of the current release.
That's not what I am asking. I mean, when my car get's the notification that there is an update... do I have to acknowledge and schedule it before it will install it? Or if I do not see the message (like if I do not drive my car for a few days), will the car install the update at 2am automatically, without my acknowledgment?
It will not install by default. You must acknowledge, because it cannot install while you are driving. And you cannot drive while it is installing.
@Brian H - In that case, it would be nice if the mobile app pushed a notification when an update is available with the ability to acknowledge, schedule, or re-schedule the update.
There is no mobile app yet to my knowledge, is there?
BYT, a number of people in the forum are beta testing the app now...
Word from the Beta testers is that they were told it will be released within the next 2 weeks
I've been told within the next 2 weeks about 2 months ago ;)
mkh1437, to answer your original question, when you get an update a little amber clock icon appears at the top of your display. Tapping it gives you the option of installing now or scheduling later OR you can close the dialog and nothing will be installed until you tap the clock icon again to choose one of the options.
