OP had the opportunity to talk with a mobile technician and shared some exciting news about FSD. “Everything is working well at this point (stop signs, street lights, left turns, right turns, etc.) The only consistent bug he has had is “valet mode”, where the car will drop off the occupants and find its own parking spot. (…) It had some issues coming back (refused to saying obstacle detected).”

We aren’t sure about how much of this is reality vs. what is not but we can’t help but getting excited!

Details about Model Y

Unannounced details about the upcoming Model Y from a little birdie:

  • AWD only
  • $35-$40k base price
  • 250+ mile base model
  • Autopilot HW 3.5 (with the possibility of a Tesla-designed Radar system, more cameras than current AP, no LIDAR)
  • L4 FSD-ready from launch

Still some risk these change, but apparently these are the engineering targets.

How to add more than one user to the Tesla App

Ville Nahkuri shared these instructions on the Tesla Slack Community:

If you would like to add an additional user to your Tesla mobile app, with their own unique login details, you should first create a Tesla Account in their name. Then email us at [email protected] with the following information:

  • Full VIN of the car
  • First and last name of the user
  • Their Tesla-registered email address

  • Their mailing address

The user will receive an email to validate their access. This can take up to 3-5 business days. Please keep in mind that this will grant the additional user access only to the Tesla mobile app, and allow them to monitor and control the vehicle.

You can find the intructions on the Tesla support site too.
