New software update adds some new features:

  • Maps now shows amenities for Superchargers - Lodging, Food, Shopping, Wi-Fi
  • Driver Profiles may now be attached to key fobs. Multiple drivers will have seat and steering wheel adjusted as they enter the car with their fob
  • Graphic EQ adds 2 levels to make it 5 band. NOTE: it will reset your audio to flat so you'll need to adjust the first time after the update 
  • Easter Eggs for Model X and Model S

Tip of the Week

The interior lighting in Teslas is horrible! Tiny, dim lights and not enough in the trunk space. Here's an inexpensive solution that will have you seeing better in the dark after a quick do-it-yourself upgrade.
