EV auto manufacturer, Tesla has released their latest software update as well as a new storage USB device for the TeslaCam and Sentry Mode.
First, let’s take a look at what’s included in the new software version.
Not every Tesla vehicle will get the new update immediately and not every model will get all the new features. Tesla publishes their updates to certain models through its over-the-air update. Currently, there is currently no way to force the download of a software update. When the new version becomes available to you, your car will notify you to install it.
You can also use the TeslaFi firmware tracker to monitor Tesla’s fleet to see the number of Tesla owners running different Tesla software versions. The app provides a range of stats as well for you to analyze your vehicle’s range loss, electricity savings, software updates, charging data, real-time driving data and much more. The tracker app is free for the first 14 days after which you will need a monthly subscription of $5.00 or an annual subscription for $50.00.
NEW TESLA STORAGE DEVICE
Tesla will now be delivering its cars with a storage device for the TeslaCam and Sentry Mode. It’s been a highly requested addition to be able to download the footage onto a USB that can be viewed on external devices. Sentry Mode has shown its worth by recording potential and executed robbery or vandalism of not only the Tesla vehicle, but of surrounding cars as well.
The refreshed design of the Model 3 includes a USB port inside the glove box which can be locked and unlocked using a PIN. While it’s not yet clear which Tesla models will have the new storage device, we do know that it’s a Tesla branded SAMSUNG BAR Plus 64GB USB that will cost around $20. This new storage device is specifically formatted for Tesla Sentry mode and Tesla cam.
