Supercharger 'bubble' screen shows which stalls are out of order

A great addition to the on-screen information. I hope the next step is to tell you which stall to use, when you arrive at the Supercharger, to maximize current charging. That would be neat!

Free off-peak Supercharging hours during Thanksgiving

The SF - LA corridor is always under stress during the US Holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas). To help with that, Tesla is incentivizing charging during off-peak hours (Before 10 AM and after 7 PM) from Wednesday, November 24 until Sunday, November 28 by offering free charging in several of stations in California. If you are traveling in California and can take advantage, take a look!

Kettleman Supercharger 56 stall expansion finished

Tesla has been able to open these extra 56 stalls, bringing Kettleman to a total of 96 stalls! Right on time for the holiday traveling. Careful if it rains, they haven’t had time to pave the ground yet.

Supercharging goes to Alaska

Tesla opened their first Supercharger in Alaska, 4 V3 stalls in Soldotna. Woohoo!

Tesla Update

Tesla shop gift card

Tesla is now selling gift cards on their online store. Do you have a friend/family member that you want to surprise? Take a look!

Tesla Model 3 deliveries now include working USB-C ports again

Great news for those of you waiting to take delivery of a new Model 3 soon, seems that Tesla was able to unblock the chip shortage and it is now delivering new Model 3s with USB-C ports. I hope everyone who got one without them had the retrofitted already.

Tesla App

Tesla App Update with controls customization

Are the default controls that Tesla puts in their mobile app homepage not the ones that you use the most? In the new version of the mobile app, you can customize them by long pressing on them.

FSD Beta

Tesla FSD Beta Update v10.5

Our friend DirtyTesla recorded a great video of FSD Beta 10.5. It seems like a solid new update, especially after many testers reported 10.4 having problems. Great update right before the holidays.

All Tesla FSD visualizations and what they mean

Great compilation explaining what each figure, line colors, and attribute mean. Worth using as a reference when watching the v10.5 video above 😊

💡 Tip of the week

Quickly access the last used app on the screen. With the square icon at the bottom left of the screen, you can access the various apps. If you want to access the last used app directly without an extra tap, you can simply hold down the icon and slide up.

🤓 What the acronym?

As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.

  • FSD - Full Self-Driving
  • LA - Los Angeles
  • SF - San Francisco
