Last night, charging in Oakland, I narrowly avoided being robbed.
At charging stations during the night time, Tesla drivers are sitting ducks. If Tesla wants to become a truly global company in the 21st century, it should learn what the realities on the street are right on home turf in the San...
We have officially launched the Jeda USB Hub Console for 2021 Tesla Model 3's and Y's.
The new Jeda USB Hub Console divides your center console into two different compartments. A top compartment organizes your daily objects, while a lower compartment stores valuables and items you prefer...
So... Was thinking about what would happen if me or the fiance ever lost our phones. It would be trivial to delete the phone as a key, but even without the phone as a key the app can still be used nefariously by looking up location and probably some controls still. Is there anywhere somebody can...

Model 3 ships with 2 key cards. For the past week I've had one cell phone and two key cards visible in the Locks area of the UI.
Today I purchased and Tesla programmed 5 more key cards. Now I have 7 key cards and 1 cell phone that work with my car. I've tested them all and they all work...

The field of view of the x-ray is limited (it's for chips), but here's a set of images that...

The largest european hacker association (chaos computer club) held its annual meeting in my hometown these last days. There was a quite interesting talk about charging security that I like to share with you (available in german and english)...

Mind you this is my curiosity as I will never valet park ;)
Will the card come with a pouch that has a key ring?
