New software update?

I just got a notice for a new software update ready to download. I'm already on 4.5. Any idea what this might be?

Let us know what version you're at when it's done! :-)

What version of 4.5 do you have? There are several versions with simple bug fixes.

I got a notice of an update overnight tonight. I have had the MS for two weeks. How often do they do OTA updates like this? Any ideas on what the changes will be? Will there be a notice of what the fixes were on my car in the morning?

owned my Tesla since mid April. 1 update within a week of getting the car. Two versions of 4.5 within the past month. I download at 2 am and wake up to the new update. No big deal so far. 4.5 gave us superchargers on the map and the option to set various charging ranges. The second 4.5 update didnt seem very different but aparently fixed some bugs.

I got it this morning and version is 4.5.59 for me. No changes in release notes.

This could be a later version than I have. Sounds like another bug fix.

I installed .59 this morning and was disappointed that the new supercharger stations on US101 were not included. Got an email about the new stations last week, but my car does not know about them yet. i wonder when that will be down loaded.
The release notes read exactly as before the dl.

Superchargers show up without an update. They come through google maps. The original superchargers came through 4.5 but as they have added superchargers they just appeared a few days later on google maps

Im still on 4.4
Anyone else still waiting on 4.5?

Still waiting here

I'm still on 4.4 which was loaded when I took delivery 4/25. No notice of 4.5 or any other update yet.

Still on 4.4

I thought everyone should have been on 4.5 by now. Call your nearest service center (have your VIN handy), and they can try to force an update to your vehicle.

I wonder if 4.5(1.55.59?) fixes the display fan issue (small fan behind 17" display keeps running continuously, even after you power off the car completely).

For those still running 4.4, I could really use some data for my investigation of how the Tesla calculates your rated range. Nearly everyone reported that the displayed "rated range" dropped after installing 4.5 and completing a standard charge (e.g. rated range dropped from 238 to 231).

I created an online survey in Google Docs to collect some data from your displays: If you want to preview the link to ensure that it forward to a Google Docs form, use

I collected all the data I could at the Menlo Park Coffee last Sunday, but forgot to check software versions.

So far it seems the Model S uses between 300 and 307 Wh/mi to calculate rated range. So far (only 19 data points), there seems to be no correlation between model, tire size, or battery size. So I think the rated range calculation got (slightly) messed up somehow, but I need more data to prove it.

One survey responder claimed to be running version 4.6, but that could have been a data entry error.

Correction: do you now have 4.5(1.33.59)?

I got release 4.5(133.54) about 2 weeks ago. Seemed to be minor bugs fix. Release notes were the same as the previous release.

On 4.4 since delivery 4/26. No issues. I am happy to wait for my first update and don't see the need to request it. What am I missing?

I am with @ssarker. Still on 4.4 after taking delivery on 5/8. Got an indicator for first 4.5 rollout, but it was pulled back due to bugs. Why should we ask for 4.5 update? Doesn't sound like we are missing anyhing material and everything is running smoothly with 4.4. Are we missing something?

Yes, you are missing something. My personal favorite features added by 4.5:

  • You can sort your contact list by first name as well as last name.
  • The Google map display is much more readable now when you select 2X magnification. Now you can read street names and see the traffic along your route when navigating (it is still hard to see it at 1X mag.).
  • When plugged in, shore power (from the outlet) will be used for HVAC, instead of draining the battery. This is great when you just want to sit inside the car and listen to music or explore the user interface.

You can see screen shots of the 4.5 Release Notes here, on TMC.

I just got 4.5 today. I see the same old superchargers so nothing new there. Why doesn't Tesla list the regular chargers as there are no superchargers yet in Washington state and it does not help me to know that there is a supercharger 1000 miles away from my present location...

Waiting to see if the battery heating process will reduce any vampire losses.

Is there a SDK available to develop apps for the Tesla console display or Smartphones?

on 4.4 since delivery on 4/26 as well.

Mine updated today, too. The SuperCharger stations are pretty useless, as there are so few on this globe - we know the few that are in service. And, the previous charging locale feature is just silly - If I've already charged there, I know where they are!

What I'd love to know are locations of ALL charging stations (and availability) at my destination or route.

How about a PlugShare or Recargo overlay? Now THAT one makes sense!

Correction: I have 4.5(1.33.59)

WA superchargers should show 19 July or thereafter.

That update was just bug fixes apparently, btw. Don't have the version numbers in front is me.

why is it that we only have the release notes after we have downloaded the update? It would be helpful to know exactly what the fixes are before we update our software so we can decide if the update is something we want/need. I see no reason why the release notes are not available for review before the update. All you need is a button on the update panel that displays the release notes or at the very least a brief list of the fixes going in. The update process doesn't allow you revert to the previous software version so why not tell us up front what issue(s) Tesla is trying to fix so we can make the call? I have had a few 'updates' that I wish I could back out but was not able to. Not every update has gone smoothly for me so I am a little skeptical about blindly updating without knowing exactly what is being 'fixed'.

If I were you I would hold off on the update until someone posts the release notes here. Then you can make your decision.

Those not on 4.5 can change the Navigation magnification through Controls> Settings> Apps> Navigation>1.0/1.5/2.0 appreciate that owners will take the time to copy the release note or 'guess' at the fixes when the release notes are not updated but from a software development standpoint putting in undocumented bug fixes is just not acceptable. That info should come directly from Tesla itself since they are the ones who update the software. Tesla needs to share that info with me directly and let me make the call without relying on a third party posting. Just think app store model. All app updates have an explanation/listing of the updates/fixes the developers are putting in. You then have the option of updating it or using the app as it is.

+1 Tonysled.

The standard in software updates is to show the release notes before installing; Tesla should do the same.
