Feature request/bug fix for "Software Update Feed"

casperHolman 2 months ago updated by James 2 months ago 0

Feature Request: Is there any way you can recode the "Software Update Feed" to only show "tesla-removed updates" as Removed, not Installed? I'm assuming your logic was originally, "If the software download is no longer available, the client must have installed the software on the car, so indicate "Installed".  Which is perfectly reasonable logic until you see how often tesla has been offering and pulling updates from vehicles.

Second feature request that I'm pretty sure you can't offer or you would have already: Tell Teslafi users the GB size of a download (download and install time isn't helpful, I have limited data on my phone so need to know if I can safely set up a hotspot to do a download when it is offered.) 

I do not update the instant I'm offered a download from tesla because I don't have easy access to WiFi and I don't trust tesla not to ship disruptively  buggy software. Each update takes me at least an hour including travel time to a parking lot with highspeed WiFi. Since December 20 I've become aware of tesla offering me a download and then removing that offer. Since the first recall update, I've been offered 5 different downloads, and 2023.44.30.30 download five different times. Four of those update offers were pulled by tesla. That makes at least 5 hours of my time since December than I've kept for myself rather than serving Lord elon. 

Note: I hate my tesla but I love your product and will continue to support you as long as I own my car. 


My "Software updates" list agrees with my tesla app (and car.) 

Lower on that Your Software Updates tab, my "Software Update Feed" *(the first screenful is shown below) tells a different, and misleading, story.

On 2024/3/31 it shows that 2023.44.30.14 was installed. AND immediately 44.30.30 was offered and installed. Neither were. We were blocks away from where the car was charging and when I checked the app to check on the car, it showed we no longer had a download being offered. Checked our Teslafi account "software update feed" and it showed we'd received and installed two updates. Got to the car and found no download icon but also no 'install' request. At first we thought the car must have jumped onto some open WiFi nearby and not only downloaded but installed the update (tesla has done that to us in distant past over LTE, unfortunately before we subscribed to Teslafi so I can't point to that instance). Given 44.30.30 the two recalls, I've been expecting tesla to push this out over premium LTE for 3 months now.  But, the car's software page said we still had 2023.37.7. Teslafi (further up the page) and the app confirmed this. A few hours later 44.30.30 was offered to us again. 

As we had a service appointment for April 4, we requested they do the install of the update at the same time. They said they did, and the "Software Update Feed" showed they did but the "Software Updates" list and the tesla app show they have not. A couple of hours later, the offer of 44.30.30 reappeared as awaiting Wifi. I have tesla looking into this for me. (Update: And as I write this, your software shows me that tesla is pushing the download onto my car.) 

Your software correctly shows the software version on my car. My suggestion to improve your product and remove any confusion is you reprogram the "Software Update Feed" to remove the assumption that updates that are no longer shown as available by tesla have actually been installed on the car. They may have been pulled by tesla, so there needs to be a check between that Update Feed and the Software Update information to make sure they match. If not, then tesla pulled an update. 

Thank you for your consideration and for your ongoing support of my car by offering a way to access its data from the comfort of my apartment since the car is not parked right outside my home.
