Software Update .61

Was running errands tonight when I got the software update notification. It's 4.5. 61 or so...
Noticed that:
1. No Valet Mode
2. No Map follows direction of vehicle...

Release notes talk mostly about better battery heating, cooling, new 2X shows better labels...

Always happy to get an update, but a little disappointed there wasn't sharks with frikin' lasers or other cool stuff... :-p


Just got an update message today and I scheduled to do the update tonight. Thanks for the heads up on what to expect so I don't get too disappointed tomorrow morning.

If it's still 4.5 then it's probably just more bug fixes.

^ Just installed it myself. That was the same patch notes as the last software version I had, so just a bug fix. I'll see if I notice anything different tomorrow.

I don't have the new version yet, but may be it's an update each time there's a newly active Supercharger.

Someone has to put those new Superchargers on the map right?

Nearing 3,000 miles on my S 85. Still no sign of 4.5 in sight (any version). Curious.

@Tam False. Since 4.5 newly activated SCs go on the map without software updates. It less clearly states this in the patch notes, but was confirmed in the forums when Normal and Centralia SCs showed up without updates.

Got .61 today also - nothing noticeable yet.

The release notes don't really mention anything that wasn't in 1.33.51.

it looks like a maintenance release, but no errata is provided - hard to tell what was fixed.
release notes match what was in the previous release.

Elon just tweeted "Sharks with lasers are will be provided on the next update."

Bluetooth broke after mine was updated to .61 this morning (it just shows a dialog "Bluetooth is initializing, please wait" forever). I'll try rebooting tomorrow, otherwise I hope it is fixed soon.

Got .61 a couple days back. New SC's on the map, all car functions working as expected.

So Tesla does read these posts.

I would guess that if there is sharks w/ lasers update coming soon, it is going to come around the earnings call on the 7th -- cool new features will help with the analysts.


I don't think the bicycle thread will appreciate the sharks with frikin lasers release.

1.33.61 fixed the 17" display fan-stuck-on-high all the time issue. I'm very happy about that. :-)

I am not sure if a new setting appeared for me. Ubder Apps, Slacker now has a setting based upon cellular signal strength. My sound system sounds much better since installing the new update.

I am still on 4.4 so I guess new bug fix roll outs will continue to those with 4.5 til it is stable, then go to the rest of 4.4 install base.
That actually makes sense to me. I know if I really wanted 4.5 I could call and get it pushed, Tesla knows what they are doing.

I was recently at a San Diego Tesla Club meeting and there was an employee from the SD Service Center there. Really nice guy and seemed very knowledgable and he said that there is a reason not everyone gets the updates at the same time.

He said that they monitor all of the prime and ideal conditions for you to get an update. Because sometimes you may not be ready for it based on what data Tesla sees. So it does sound like there is some controlled reasons for the updates.

He said that you can always come to a service center (with appointment) and get an update. It can take 2 hours. But he said it's best to wait until Tesla notifies you that you're ready for an update.

Got .61 today also - nothing noticeable yet.

Pulled into the office parking lot my usual hour+ before co-workers arrive. Was going to just sit in the S for the usual/daily 20-30 minutes that I do, just enjoying the car. So, what the heck, started the .61 update. Only took 8 minutes with 4 bars. So I guess the update message that states it will take 45 minutes is just standard formatted message.

Am I the only person that gets to work and wishes I could turn around and drive away just for the fun of it? Am I the only person that just sits in the car enjoying and admiring the beauty? And can't wait for the end of the day so I can drive her again...

@akikiki - you are NOT the only one. :-) I ask my wife every day, "Hey, do you have any errands you need me to run?" Just so I can maybe get a few extra minutes in the car!

I got notification to upgrade to .61 yesterday (and posted about it). No noticeable changes that I can see, as I was already on 4.5.

Happy driving, everyone!

Update runs with no bars (sub basement parking). Is downloaded earlier, probably when you get the Set Time notice.

Tire Pressure Low - Red Exclamation Mark warning
Update installed last night.
Came up at second drive of the morning. Stopped and visually checked tires. All looked good.
Restarted with same tire pressure warning although it self corrected about 10 minutes into the drive.

I wish they would just re-release sleep mode. I hate watching 10 miles of range drain away every day. There's someone on the forum who's still on 4.l because they didn't want to lose sleep mode. When I got my MS it was already on 4.2 so I was SOL.

I had the same disappearing tire pressure warning . My car update again on 4.5 a few days ago.
Looks like a bug fix .

I had same tire pressure warning issue-take it to a service center -it's a ten minute fix-apparently on some units the sensor wasn't in the right place-tire pressure warning hasn't gone on since

I just got it and scrolled down. Didn't it deal with "vampire load" by saying if you keep it plugged in, charge comes from wall and not the car? Or was that there in the last 4.5 version (.54)?

Dear akikiki,

Agreed, you're not the only one who hangs out in their Tesla. I do it a lot. I rarely eat lunch, but on days when I'm tired or just want to get out of the office, I'll move my car to a discrete corner of the lot, turn on the HVAC, recline the seat and rest. Most workplaces aren't conducive to napping and idling an ICE for an hour is irresponsible, even illegal in many places. Other times I'll surf the net, do some emailing or listen to music. At home I often take cellphone calls to my car for privacy. The Model S makes a great "cone of silence" (a "Get Smart" reference for you youngsters). We've been having a brutal heat wave in the east. The AC at home can't fully cool the master bedroom in our 4 story town house. I haven't spent the night in the car, but I often need to literally chill out there for a while or I won't get any sleep. Electric HVAC turns a car into a portable office, refuge, camper, private hideout, etc. Sorry for rambling off topic.

Back to the subject. I have 4.5(1.33.54) and an update (presumably 4.6.1) queued for tonight. My S was delivered with 4.2. in February. It now has some very nice features that came via various updates. What a great deal. Patches and bug fixes are appreciated too, though less exciting. Still, how many cars get upgraded, repaired or tweaked for free while they are parked somewhere? Are there cars, besides Tesla, that get any kind of free software updates over the air? If so, do any get new features this way? Sorry for rambling on topic. Just enjoying some "me time" in the car after work.
Thanks again Tesla, for everything.

I updated to the .61 in the a.m. and when I had a chance to drive it later in the day I got the tire warning. It came on, it went off for a mile then came on again. Since I was planning my first road trip, Long Island to Albany, NY, I figured it would be prudent to check. Every tire was 5-7 lbs. low.

I was going to ignore it because of all the posts about faulty TPMS antennae and sensors. Glad I took the time.
