Issue 202 - FSD Beta insane maneuvering!
Made in the US, their products are available in 25+ countries, and they currently support over 150 installers in the US. Check them out (and request a free consultation).
FSD Beta, this time v10.9, keeps surprising us with maneuvers like this one. For those of you who haven’t experienced it yet, FSD Beta is both amazing and scary, if you get to try it out, keep constant attention.
FSD Beta v10.10 is here and it is great to see some of these improvements, especially the improved smoothness when stopping for crossing objects, I’ve noticed that my car doesn’t slam the breaks anymore when a car cuts in front of you at an intersection that isn’t close. The bad news is that they eliminated the rolling stops, even though the car only did them when it was 100% safe.
Great video from Chuck. There are a few turns there that would be challenging for a lot of drivers and the car does them, with patience, pretty well.
In the new firmware - 2022.2.1 - the Save to Dashcam option can now be added to the favorites in the bottom bar. Not the best, as not many icons can be there, but better now than buried in a menu.
Several owners with Model 3s and Model Ys delivered in January 2022 are seeing the option to activate heated wipers update updating to 2022.4.5. Cool!
I haven’t seen this in action, but great to see the software rending speed bumps and reducing the speed to 15mph. According to Greentheonly, they are also working on some sort of 3d terrain visualization, maybe to render potholes and others?
This is great, especially for those missing the data ports in the center console who can’t play Cuphead, Sonic, and Cat Quest.
The rumor is that Tesla is working on their very own App Store, I can’t wait to see what developers would do with something like that.
Third prototype from ‘deleet’, really cool stuff! Would you use something like this?
💡 Tip of the week
You can engage Autopilot with two short pulls of the stalk in the Model 3 and Model Y. This is something that I learned this week, instead of pulling the stalk all the way down, you can do short pulls, and that works as well, similar to the blinker short pulls.
🤓 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
- mph - Miles per hour
- US - United States
