Too bad they do not provide revision history so we know what changed. :cool:
Guess I'll just read the entire manual again lol
It used to be done on aircraft AOIs in the RCAF years ago.

One would have a list of changes at the front and then each change was highlighted from the surrounding text......

[EDIT: hold on, the document on the left was pre-highlighted from the previous comparison. I need to find a pristine version and try again.]
[EDIT #2: I found a December 2017 version. Updated link.]

Thanks for doing this. It proved for me to be very helpful indeed.

During the past Summer, there were a few Owner's Manual updates up to 8/1/18 (publishing date is at bottom of last page of manual). Since then, especially with V9 changes, I have not seen any update to the OM. Anyone else see something I've missed? As someone who actually does RTFM, just wondered about this.

the location of the manual stays the same with any updates (linked in the first post in this thread, and linked in the FAQ post in the Tech section). They have not updated the PDF version since the Aug1 update.

The one via the owner website is currently August 1, 2018; I know there to have been
July 3, 2018
April 20, 2018
March 13, 2018
March 6, 2018
January 3, 2018
December 21, 2017
September 12, 2017 (No cover, date from PDF metadata.)

The Wayback Machine has January 3 cached. Some of the posts earlier in this thread have links to other versions. Here's a Draftable comparison of Jan 3 to Aug 1.

(I've edited this post a few times as I discovered or confirmed additional versions, or reconciled out release dates versus version date on the back cover.)

Have you read the Owner’s Manual found in the Tesla T section? You can find the latest update there.
Yes I have, and that’s the reason for my question. It’s the August 1st version and the software is well beyond that.
