Quick update I found on the .51 build. They fixed the "Easy Entry" on park. Instead, it goes to "Easy Entry" when you release the seatbelt which is a huge improvement. Easy Entry, on Park was annoying as heck.

That was present in .50 as well

Thankfully the SC disables remote access controls when you drop the car off otherwise you may have electrocuted your friendly service technician.

I don't think the geofencing works on the 3. I'm still getting HomeKit notifications when they lock or unlock the car, and I remotely disabled Valet mode for them when they needed it off to test something. Hell, even changed the charging limit last night when it was plugged in ;)

Got 50.13 550ee35.
I now see measurements from the parking sensors when close to an object (Eg. 22 inches, 20 inches...). I don't remember seeing that detail before.

I need to double check as my car has that and I could have sworn I was on 50.11.

Could be wrong...

Will update and confirm soon.

EDIT - I was wrong, my car was delivered with 50.13.

I definitely had that with 50.11
Thanks. OP updated.

Interestingly, build 2017.51 e254f92 was reported on Tuesday and 2018.4.6 was reported on Model 3s yesterday on EV-FW. Neither have popped up on Teslafi which has 22 Model 3s registered and 2017.51 never popped up in EV-FW database. Just goes to show the lack of pattern to FW updates. My MX is still on 2017.50.3 which is 5 versions ago.

I'm now on 2018.4.6 9a47df4. Release notes, Owners Manual, wow!! Feeling more like a Model S :p Also, there's an additional feature for "Key Management", so you can see what keys/phones are connected to the car. I'm also told there's better UI functionality for the wipers, but it's not raining now so I haven't tested it out yet...

See included screenshot - Here is the update on the app with 2018.4. Released today (2/10). Can anyone confirm the new heating controls apply to the 3 with the 2018.4 build? That would help confirm if there is a heated wheel and backseat?

Regarding pre-conditioning the seats, I think we'd only see that if a Model 3 owner in colder climates posts a screenshot of pre-conditioning. It doesn't show anything different on my app right now.

This does NOT mean we get the heated rear seats UI though far as I can tell.

Just to add more info here, this is the new UI for the wipers. We get more granular control for manual swipes.

Very nice!

One clarification.... Does "Auto" only apply to the far-right slider position, and positions 1 - 4 are manual wiper speeds? Or are positions 1 - 5 all "Auto" with different sensitivity levels? Seems like you're suggesting it's the first one, but just wanted to be sure. Thanks!

Good question! Seems like 1-4 is manual and the far right is just regular "auto" mode, but don't quote me on that as we haven't had rain so can't test that bit. But the manual range is pretty good IMO:

1- one swipe maybe every 5+ seconds? (don't know for sure I got impatient and didn't wait long enough)
2- swipe every 2 seconds
3- swipe every second
4- continuous swipes

Got it -- thanks for testing those settings out. I imagine those intervals should work for most people... and hey, if they don't, it's just software so Tesla can change it!

I'm glad they addressed the wiper controls sooner than later. A few months ago, when this update was just a twinkle in Elon's eye, I made the mistake of warning my wife that she wouldn't like the wiper controls.... and then made the even bigger mistake of actually describing how they worked to her :eek:. Her reaction was, understandably, "WHHHYYYYY?!?!" But with this new UI, she'll now have at LEAST as many wiper options as she has on her aging Subaru, so hopefully that will count for something. :)

I'll be curious to see how easy it is to adjust the wipers on the touch screen while actually driving in rain. Typically, one pays closer attention to the road in wet conditions, which (for me at least) narrows peripheral vision considerably. Ideally, it would be nice to attach a voice command to the wipers, so you could just say, "Wiper Level Four" or "Wiper Level Auto" without taking your hands off the wheel and eyes off the road.

Cool -- I'm ready for my update! :)
Ok....fine.... I wasn’t going to share my secret dance but if you can’t wait for an update, doing this in the Service Center parking lot while wearing only an adult diaper usually gets the staff’s attention....

When I picked up my M3 on 2-10-18, Saturday, it had a notice for the update. I forgot to note what I was on at the time.

Prior to the update I was having a couple problems that seemed to have been fixed.

1. Car was pulling to the right. I had only driven about 120 miles total on the car before updating, and after the update it seemed to go away.

2. Profile setting on mirrors. I’m a tall guy (6’3”) and my eye level is probably about 6” or less from the roof, so I have the mirrors angled kind of high for me. When I’d save where it worked for me, after getting in and out of the car, the mirrors would not go back to the spot I saved it, so I kept having to adjust it every time I got in the car. After the update I stopped having this issue.

Small but very much welcome tweak to the odometer/efficiency screen:

The trip meter always used to default to the top (Trip A, Trip B, etc.) after swiping away from the screen, which was a bit annoying as I prefer having the trip meter always display the "since last time car was driven" tracker instead of the Trip A/Trip B defaults.

Now the UI remembers your preference and stays there! Small thing but such a time saver.
