Ian Pavelko and Trevor Page from Tesla Owners Online have finally been able to complete this epic coast-to-coast nonstop road trip across Canada. It took them 73 hours… who said EVs can’t be used in cold weather? Or bad for road trips? This is amazing and will for sure help a lot of people realize EVs are a solid choice and are here to stay. Check out their video sharing the good and the bad of this adventure.
The first folks who purchased FSD + MCU2 are already sharing their experiences after the retrofit. User zanary on TMC Forum with a Model S P100D (AP2.5 and MCU1 before the upgrade) has shared quite a few very interesting details from his experience, check it out! A few highlights:
Both the IC and the MCU get replaced (you don’t get to keep MCU1 pieces unless you pay for it)
All settings are retained except for wifi connections, Bluetooth, web browser favorites
Beeps (like in ‘Joe Mode’) are louder
Wifi appears to be faster, needed for a couple of initial things after the upgrade (downloading games and navigation udpate)
And our favorite one… “it’s so damn quick. It’s night and day!”
Great video by Tesla Raj. Tesla started delivering the first Model Ys exactly one year after the unveiling and six months ahead of schedule. The day after it the first Model Y was delivered in Fremont I had the opportunity of seeing it in real life and I have to say the car is gorgeous.
The last software update introduces Bluetooth improvements to detect the driver in the seat and connect to their phone. Well, this is only the beginning since Elon said it will also connect to your driver profile preferences and apply those when the driver seat is detected. This makes more and more sense as the number of households with two or more Teslas increases, assuming this means your diver settings are stored in the cloud and used in different cars. Very cool.
As a Model S owner with power liftgate, I’m really pleased to see the Model Y comes with this feature. Believe it or not, thanks to this video I discovered that I can adjust the height of my powered liftgate 😊. Very cool that you can set the height to anything you like!
