Issue 244 - FSD Beta now open to everyone in North America

Software Updates

Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta open to anyone in North America

If you were one of those waiting to purchase or get FSD Beta, Elon announced on Twitter this week that FSD Beta is now available to anyone who purchased the option and requests it from the app screen. If you are considering subscribing/purchasing it, there is a gotcha, if your car is in a version greater than 2022.36.20, you will have to wait until the next release, so it may not be worth purchasing it until that is already out.

I personally think the auto high beams have been working okay for quite some time, but I’ve seen many reports of folks who don’t agree with me.After 2022.40 went out, many folks (including European owners that are usually more conservative about the use of high beams) are now reporting really good improvements.

In the new app version, you can see the release notes directly from your smartphone as well as see the live cameras directly from the main menu.
