The release includes several goodies, I would recommend you to read the whole thing, but here are a few highlights:
- Sentry mode has a new setting to keep it always on and exclude places
- Set your software update preference and let Tesla know that you want them to send new software updates to your car as soon as they become available for your car and region
- Conditional Speed Limits are now displayed - if they apply to your current road - under the regular speed limit sign. I assume this still doesn’t include cameras recognizing the speed limits but who knows
It seems like the release notes of the mobile app contain a spoiler of what’s coming up in release 2018.24 :-O

Tesla Tom brings us this Autopilot version 2020.44 speed limit testing on single and multi-lane roads with both fixed and offset speed limits. It looks like on multi-lane roads AP still doesn’t apply the changes automatically, but if you push them manually- the car recognizes the speed limit change and you can tap on it on the screen- AP will match it appropriately. On a single lane road AP does automatically match the road speed when it drops (not when it increases, in which case you have to push it). All in all, still room for improvement, but feeling good about this!From issue #137
Harvey Payne, from the closed Facebook Group ‘Tesla Tips & Tricks’, has informed that after reporting the correct speed limit on OpenStreetMap it took his car less than a week to start showing the correct speed limit.
I’ve seen a lot of discrepancies in the past about how to go about reporting bad maps data, but according to Harvey and a couple of other comments, this one actually work. If there is an incorrect speed limit, illegal turn, or others, help everyone and report it to OpenStreetMap!

If you live in California, I’m sure you’ve been in the situation where, even going at or a bit above the speed limit, you’re still the slowest car on the road (go absurd speed limits!). Other times, depending on things like weather, traffic in other lanes, etc. it is just not safe to go at the speed limit of the road. In a response to a great video from our friend John (@teslaownerssv), Elon Musk has hinted at a future ‘match other traffic speed’ setting which would address those issues.From issue #144
Pre AP Tesla owners are not only getting the ability to start the navigation in their car by the mobile app and the new UI, but they’re also getting:
- Chill mode (although present in the UI multiple people report that it actually doesn’t do much)
- Speed limit mode
