    Model S Software/Firmware Updates

    A place to discuss current Model S Software/Firmware updates what changes were made and any problems that appeared with the update.

    contaygious found a discussion on the Tesla Motors forum regarding some of the promised features that have already been added to the current version. The direct link to the TM forum discussion is here

    Model S Software Updates

    Looks like the first notice from Tesla about a software update is out. Post thoughts about the update or any problems it has created.

    Email from Tesla


    Software Updates
    In the next 2 weeks, your Model S will display an alarm clock icon in the status bar letting you know that new software is available. Model S updates its software wirelessly, providing new functionality throughout your term of ownership. The process to install these enhancements is outlined below.

    Onboard Notification
    The first time you enter your Model S after an update is made available, you will be shown a scheduling dialogue box. You can install immediately, confirm the suggested time, or schedule an alternate time. Once scheduled, the icon will change color from yellow (unscheduled) to white (scheduled). At any point before installation begins, you can re-schedule the installation.


    IMPORTANT: Model S must be in Park and not driving when new software is being installed. A software update can take up to 2 hours to complete so be sure to select a time when the car can sit idle for this period.

    If your car is charging when the update is scheduled, charging will temporarily stop and restart after the software is installed. If you are driving when the installation is scheduled, the installation will be cancelled.

    Well you were probably busy actually driving the real thing
    Let us know when it updates and how it goes.

    I hope they post the features added and/or bugs fixed. Would really be nice to see the errata of known issues, but I highly doubt they would be that open.

    Well release notes are fairly common -- and this is a car, so you'd want to know what's new. If they didn't release any for this update, I would guess minor bug fixes or patches, no real new features or functionality.

    I didn't see this posted anywhere else, but MSN Auto confirmed that the update adds creep:

    Hmm, it seems like they're mixing joosts blog and the announcement that software is coming or is available to jump to the conclusion (or at least imply) that this current update adds creep. Odd no owners have spoken up yet.
