    Yes, I also have this problem.

    Have you found that it is losing fluid, or do you think it's just a spurious indicator?

    A couple of things I could think to try:
    • Reboot the center screen by pressing and holding both the rollers on the steering wheel for about 15 seconds
    • Reboot the dashboard display by pressing and holding the top buttons on both sides of the steering wheel as above
    • Get in with the key, put the car into gear and then into park again, and then get out
    • Plug in the charging cable

    It appears to be spewing random errors at startup as of version 4... I've had wiper fluid low warnings a couple times... did nothing about it ... warning went away .. and now it hasn't happened for several days ...

    Ah. Interesting. I've only seen that warning, so I thought it might point to a real issue. I'll begin ignoring it now.

    Is there a way to turn off auto updates?

    YES! I've been getting this intermittently since picking up the car... maybe once a day i get the warning about low washer fluid. haven't bought or added any so don't know if it's real or not, but I'd be surprised if they don't check this at the factory at some point.

    My 2007 LS has XM NavTraffic - and warns you about upcoming traffic challenges, and can even offer to re-route you around the congestion.

    Does the Model S navigation have access to the traffic data? While it's visible on the Google Maps - that doesn't necessarily mean that the navigation software also sees and uses it for routing.

    Weird issue with the XM. When I'm listening to one channel and then I use the slider to get to another channel, a few seconds later the slider and display will show the channel number for the old channel. The audio is still for the new channel. I haven't experimented enough to track it down to when it happens, but it happened a few times today.

    It must. For example, it routed me a different way to Austin than normal due to traffic, and once the voice said something like "warning, accident reported ahead." Integration is subtle, though.
