Track Mode enables Tesla’s performance-oriented stability control and powertrain settings configured for track driving, and is designed to be used exclusively on closed courses and optimized for performance tires. Track Mode allows you to:
– Create custom track mode settings profiles and record your track day data. – Monitor the status of your car motors, battery, brakes and tires in real time.
– View the G-meter (a real-time accelerometer) displayed in the cards area of the touchscreen. To enable Track Mode for your current drive, shift into Park, then tap Controls > Pedals and Steering > Track Mode.
For more information about Track Mode, please visit the Owner’s Manual.

When using the volume control icon closest to the passenger, the overlay to control the volume now contains a shortcut to the vehicle’s audio settings.
Tesla has added a new fart to Emissions Testing Mode. The new fart name is called ‘Verified,’ and features a Twitter checkmark.
Tesla has made changes to where HomeLink appears in the vehicle. HomeLink will now appear in the status bar, which includes buttons to ‘Activate’ or ‘Cancel’ the opening of your garage door or gate.
If the garage door is set to auto-open or auto-close, the status bar will also display the number of feet or meters before the signal is transmitted.
While climate control fan speeds have been simplified when the HVAC system is set to Auto, you can still gain granular controls when switching to Manual.
While in Manual mode, you’ll have access to the old 1-10 scale fan speeds, as well as the ability to tap or use the slider to adjust the fan speed.
Tesla has reintroduced cards for the Model 3 and Model Y. Tesla used to have cards for these models in the lower left corner of the screen prior to last year’s Holiday Update.
These cards allow you to swipe between the newly designed media player, your odometer and trip meters and your tire pressure.
Tesla redesigned parts of the navigation UI to improve the layout of your next turn and available options.
Previously there was a module at the top of the screen and displayed your next turn, your ETA, destination name or address, and battery level on arrival. It also included controls to cancel navigation, toggle Navigate on Autopilot and a ‘more’ button.
With this update Tesla is splitting this UI into two pieces. The first remains at the top of the screen and will include critical information about your route, such as your next turn.
The rest of the information is moved to the bottom of the screen. This will include your travel time, destination details, as well as options to alter or cancel your navigation.
Sentry Mode now allows for even greater customization, including:
– Camera-Based Detection, which allows users to disable use of cameras to detect threats.
– Sentry Mode Clip Length, which allows users to specify the length of the clip when a potential threat is detected.
To adjust these Sentry Mode settings, tap Controls > Safety > Sentry Mode.
When Camera-Based Detection is enabled, Sentry Mode will use the vehicle’s external cameras in addition to vehicle sensors to detect a security event while parked. If disabled, the vehicle will only save clips to the USB drive if a physical threat is detected. To adjust, tap Controls > Safety > Sentry Mode > Camera-Based Detection.
You can now select Thai as your touchscreen language. To update your language settings, tap Controls > Display and select your preferred language from the ‘Touchscreen Language’ drop-down menu.
With the help of Tesla Vision, seat belts will begin to tighten and protect properly restrained occupants earlier in a wider array of frontal crashes.
Learn more about your vehicle’s energy consumption with the Energy app. You can now:
– Monitor the amount of energy used while driving and parked.
– See how much energy is consumed by different vehicle components, driving behaviors, and environmental conditions.
– View energy used in comparison to trip projection and the battery indicator.
– Receive personalized suggestions for using energy more efficiently.
Your vehicle will now display additional information about the battery in certain situations. An (i) icon will appear at the top of the display next to your charging details.
Tapping the icon will take you to the charging screen which will provide additional information, such as the charge rate being limited due to the battery’s temperature.

Service Mode, a dedicated area for service centers and technicans to troubleshoot and make changes to the vehicle, has a new mode to view information about the heat pump its various components.
You can now view detailed information about the heat pump’s refrigerant, its flow, suction and the mechanical parts involved such as the compressor and valves.

When Tesla’s climate system is set to Auto, it gives you the ability to let the vehicle control the temperature of your seats as well.
However, if you changed the HVAC system to manual, then you’d lose the ability to keep your seat heaters on Auto.
With this update you now have the ability to have the climate system on manual while keeping the seat heaters set to Auto.

In regions where Teslas supports vehicle emergency services through the SOS standard, Tesla has historically provided a physical button near the vehicle’s hazard light switch.
Newer vehicles replaced the physical SOS button with an on-screen-only button. Previously, the on-screen button was not displayed on vehicles that included the physical button, however with this update it’s now displayed on all vehicles where Tesla supports vehicle SOS.

This is an early look at this update’s release notes. There may be other features that are not shown below. It appears that this may be a smaller update as Tesla prepares for the traditional holiday update next month.
You can now select Thai as your touchscreen language. To update your language settings, tap Controls > Display and select your preferred language from the ‘Touchscreen Language’ drop-down menu.
– Enabled FSD Beta on highway. This unifies the vision and planning stack on and off-highway and replaces the legacy highway stack, which is over four years old. The legacy highway stack still relies on several single-camera and single-frame networks, and was setup to handle simple lane-specific maneuvers. FSD Beta’s multi-camera video networks and next-gen planner, that allows for more complex agent interactions with less reliance on lanes, make way for adding more intelligent behaviors, smoother control and better decision making.
– Improved Occupancy Network’s recall for close by obstacles and precision in severe weather conditions with 4x increase in transformer spatial resolution, 20% increase in image featurizer capacity, improved side camera calibration, and 260k more video training clips (real-world and simulation).
– Improved merging behavior by leveraging lane geometry and lane bounds, association with coarse map information and better gap selection algorithms, allowing for a smoother and safer experience.
– Added highway behavior to offset away from blocked lanes and generic obstacles like road debris while also adding a smooth handoff between in-lane offsetting and lane changing.
– Improved speed-based lane change decisions to better avoid slowing down traffic in fast lanes, and interfere less with navigation.
– Reduced sensitivity for speed-based lane changes in CHILL mode.
– Improved lane changes to allow higher jerk maneuvers if required to stay on-route or to move away from lane blockages.
– Improved smoothness at highway lane splits by being less strict about centering between lane lines and allowing lower jerk maneuvers, where safe to do so.
– Reduced latency of trajectory optimization by 20% on average, without sacrificing behavior, by leveraging numerical tricks for more efficient computations.
Press the “Video Record” button on the top bar UI to share your feedback. When pressed, your vehicle’s external cameras will share a short VIN-associated Autopilot Snapshot with the Tesla engineering team to help make improvements to FSD. You will not be able to view the clip.
Full Self-Driving is in early limited access Beta and must be used with additional caution. It may do the wrong thing at the worst time, so you must always keep your hands on the wheel and pay extra attention to the road. Do not become complacent. When Full Self-Driving is enabled your vehicle will make lane changes off highway, select forks to follow your navigation route, navigate around other vehicles and objects, and make left and right turns. Use Full Self-Driving in limited Beta only if you will pay constant attention to the road, and be prepared to act immediately, especially around blind corners, crossing intersections, and in narrow driving situations.
Your vehicle is running on Tesla Vision! Note that Tesla Vision also includes some temporary limitations, follow distance is limited to 2-7 and Autopilot top speed is 85 mph.
