Got the notice this morning! Updated. Nothing new in this one EXCEPT its all new to me as I was stuck on 24.8. Ok well at least the lock beep will be new. I hope to try it after everyone else is awake.
Also hope this clears up the BT echo.

And new ARTWORK! Actually like this better!
That is the beauty of the honk on lock, it is just enough for you to know. Bedrooms next to the garage might hear it, but by the time I've closed the door and come in the house it is just a nice chirp. The dogs don't even bark at it, which is my indicator that it's not too loud or annoying, if it were, they would be barking.

Also in a parking lot I'm usually 15 to 20 steps away and I have to stop and think was that my car I heard. Getting used to it, but it is not loud.

28.1 has hit 65 cars today already. The key is it is rolling to all models, S and X too. The majority have been 3's with 52, but they look to be back on a unified release.

Cool. I gotta wait little longer to try it in the garage as the boy worked last night and didn't get home til late.
Maybe I will try it anyway to get him outta bed :p

Wow no update for a while now many weeks was stuck on 24.8 and now I get 28.1 early. Must have done something right. I was pretty happy with 24.8 though. No drain. Hopefully this helps with the Bluetooth phone echo issue.

Well, I tried the horn and the boy is still asleep! so must be good. HA!
Man you had patience waiting this long. I would have had to try and just apologize later. :cool:

I’m one of those crazies. The world stops until the new software is installed and tested.

I was very disappointed that @JWardell didnt get up at 1 am to start his install.

On the serious side of this Tesla knows 100% the status of the car and prevent it while driving etc. I really wish they would give the option to start the SW install remotely.

I installed 28.1 last night (was on 24.7 from delivery 7/13) and the first thing I did was make a phone call over bluetooth... The echo is still there :mad:

Someone on Reddit was told by a Tesla person (on the phone, not in a store, so it's marginally more credible, possibly, maybe) that they try to limit updates if possible to about 1 a month. My car at first got fairly frequent updates (pretty noticeable bugs drove that, I'd guess), then for the last 3 updates they have slowed to every 3-4 weeks.

As someone who uses their car phone a lot, (iphone X), that's really annoying news and something that should get address asap. It renders that BT basically useless...

I’ve made 2 calls with 28.1 today. The second to specifically test for the BT echo and so far it is NOT happening to me
