FSD Beta

Comparing Tesla FSD Beta chill, average, and assertive modes

Great comparison by DirtyTesla. After watching the video, I need to give chill a try.

Software updates

The trip energy calculator is getting better

A new finding by Greentheonly! It seems that the trip energy is now accounting for cross/headwinds, air density, and humidity. Hopefully, this helps when people might cut it too close.

We talked about this feature last week and now a screenshot just leaked, I guess it is here before I have the need, but I’m sure many households with 2 Teslas really welcome this.

Tesla begins five-seater Model X deliveries in the US

πŸ’‘ Tip of the week

Try out the different settings for Navigate on Autopilot and FSD Beta before you settle in one. Sometimes the description and name don’t really correspond with what you like. For instance, for me, Navigate on Autopilot in moderate is just really good, anything above that changes lanes way too often for my taste.

πŸ€“ 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
