I’m possibly jumping the gun on this post but this FW build was reported today on S/X but Model 3 installs have not been reported yet. There have been no installs of 2018.24 since 6/22 so I believe this version must have fixed some bugs and replaced it. Hopefully this version will be stable enough to be released fleetwide as 2018.24 hasn’t made it.

Always remember... Especially with an update like this that that has major new features, there is a reason why test releases occur. Bugs may exist that can render your car buggy or worse yet, unusable.

PLEASE don’t irritate your service center every time you see a new version is available. Those guys are overworked as is. If you see a version has achieved wide release status (at least 15-20%) and you ABSOLUTELY must have the new features then you can politely ask them. With new FW versions coming out at least 1-2X per month, you likely will not get each and every update (unless Elon follows thru with the self-request button). I have gone as long as 2 months without updates before I ask the SvC to push it.

I agree 100% with this. I've only asked about an update once when my model 3 was having 18-20 mile loss range turns out it was the third party app constantly pinging the model 3 .

Tezlab not sure if it is 100% sure but I've been working with the developer he just had a kid so it's been slow on the response having a kid myself I totally get it. But now I never lose more than 4.

Ahh I noticed something similar with that app. I liked the app but it appeared to be the source of my vampire drain so I stopped using it and saw my drain drop significantly. I am trying teslafi which is pretty cool but I'm seeing some issues with my car waking up randomly from sleep and I suspect it has something to do with teslafi. It's odd as I will see my car go to sleep for 30 min, wake up, then go back to sleep after about 45 min then, wake up after 30 min, then randomly at night it might sleep for 8 hours only to wake up and do the 30 minute cycle thing again.

@Brokedoc do you have a sense yet if installs have picked up on this version?
Unfortunately, installs are crawling.

No further installs on 2018.24 since 6/22. Looks to be an abandoned build.

For 2018.24.1, there were 6 installs yesterday and 2 today. Almost all installs are in Europe. None reported yet on a Model 3.

Meanwhile 2018.21.9 is still active with new installs going on. This build is up to 91% of all Tesla’s registered on TeslaFi.

Yes my nightly drain went up three fold 3x after installing the app. Uninstalling stopped it entirely. So I do believe it’s a th8ng. While I do enjoy the data it provides I didn’t find it worth the constant elevated drain especially with some upcoming trips

I had my hopes up. While I was at service today, they cued up a software update, so I installed when I got back to the office. But it just shows the 18.21 again after it finished.
