Suggestion: Next time one of these threads gets opened, add a comment in the post directing people that receive the update to rate the first post "Informative" (or something) as opposed to simply posting "Got it" messages. That might keep the signal to noise ratio high on discussing the new features, bugs fixed, and bugs introduced in the release, and also give people an easy way to see how widely distributed the release is (for those that don't check TeslaFi or ez-fw (or whatever it is)). I guess you would miss the geographical information and the actual speed of the rollout, and I suspect people would probably just post anyway...but if you think it's worthwhile to give it a shot, please do.

Anyway, I got the update myself this morning :)

Something I noticed is that AP seemed more willing to take a particular exit/interchange ramp at a higher speed than it has in the past (which is good, because I had been potentially holding up traffic). The real test will be on my afternoon commute as the opposite ramp (where the speed limit goes up from 65 to 70) is particularly problematic, as even though I set the TACC to 73, the car insists on going no more than 60mph, even though the curve is very gentle, and in fact for a pretty good section, perfectly straight. I have no option but to step on the accelerator to avoid getting rear ended on this section. I'd be very happy if that was addressed.

@NOGA$4ME since we are trying to figure out how it gets sent around (until the unicorn v9 version comes out) people tend to post where they are getting it from. But I agree there should be some way to say what region or something maybe an icon or something? or maybe that's what tesla fi should do for us. I got it also in central Florida :)

Got it here in FLA...

It does return the Slacker playlist function if you are signed in on the Slacker Premium account.

Getting set for the morning drive (80+ miles), so we shall see how it goes....

Granted, not all M3OC users contribute to TeslaFi, but they also don't post in this (or similar) threads, so I think this would give you a pretty good indication of geographical distribution if this is interesting data:

https://teslafi.com/softwareMain.php?detail=FleetUpdates

This will break down this particular release and give you sortable fields as well:

https://teslafi.com/softwareMain.php?detail=2018.36.2 ac4a215

I don't know if you have to be a TeslaFi subscriber or not to access these links...maybe a non-subscriber can check. If these are open to anyone, then I'll add another suggestion to put the above link into the first post of the new threads devoted to S/W releases.

Okay, thanks for confirming. Well let me say this about 36.2: it's rolling out FAST! I can't say that I monitor the rate at which all new updates roll out, but in the 12 hours since the update was first seen, we're already up to 13% of the Model 3 fleet with that update installed, even more interesting considering the fact that it's still very early AM in California and likely many owners haven't had a chance to install yet.

I am unable to access the links, not a subscriber to teslafi. apparently been living under a rock (ok, really inside my model 3 b/c it is so bad-ass) b/c i'm not even sure what it is?

I also got the update notification before I woke up this morning, but waited to have it install while I am at work. Got the notification that it installed while teaching my class. I'm in Kansas City.

I saw this message to update when I got into my car this morning at 6:40am. Odd thing is since last two updates, there is no longer a notification about an update being available on my iPhone, though after the update I do see a notification stating that the update is complete. Anyone else having similar experience, lately?
Wish Tesla gave better description on what was fixed, instead of same one liner we have been reading lately. We can all wish

Doesn't help you because it's obviously different, but as a data point, on my Android phone I did get a notification that the update was available (and the second one that it was complete).

Just got 36.2 this morning while at work. Haven't driven it yet. Question about the In-car supercharger payment option. Is this just an option if you don't want it to automatically bill your CC on file in Tesla account, or do we now have only one option- to manually enter a card every time we are at a supercharger?
(I'm VIN 027XXX)

I fully agree with this, however the question is what happens when a users phone loses cellular network and as I do not use public Wi-Fi? Especially in some enclosed malls, department stores or warehouses, there are dead spots.
I guess we all will have to be considerate to others by remembering or setting a reminder on phone.
Not sure if Tesla app has this feature to notify you at specific or after 30 minutes of plugging in, etc.? If its not there, nice feature to have. where do we post this request to Tesla for enhancements?
