RV_ Posted February 17 Report Share Posted February 17 The Short version: As I have said many times I am not buying Full Self Driving from Tesla until it is out of Beta. However it is not a recall as most think of recalls. They found errors in the software just like when Apple or Microsoft does updates to their OS (Operating Systems) on their computers tablets and phones. This is an Over the air update at no charge to the folks who have the BETA Full Self Driving or FSD. Just like all the improvements, new features, and safety updates I have received Over THe Air (OTA) since buying it in 2020. MY car is connected to my WiFi at home and my phone via the Tesla App that makes my phone a key and is used for a lot of settings etc. Most of the articles I have read put that it is just an over the air update to a BETA program.in the last line. Longer: The Tesla owners who have FSD have been told not to use Full Self Driving, which is totally different than Tesla's Autopilot. Autopilot which is just adaptive cruise control with excellent lane keeping and doing stop and go traffic. Musk earlier mentioned he is changing the FSD computer too on future Tesla vehicles. It won't be able to be retrofitted to previous year Tesla models. But when all is said and done it is a software update to a BETA program. Trust me, Tesla owners all know about FSD being BETA. Tempest in a Teapot. Looks like I'll be getting one of the new ones Model Ys for future FSD. It is three years old almost anyway. Love it. Just an example of negatively hyping a software update as a recall. If that is a recall, Apple has recalled their Macs, iPads, and iPhones, hundreds of times, every monthly most of the time. A BETA program was found to have errors and is being updated to fix it. I like Business Insier because they put that up front. Excerpt: Tesla recalls more than 362,000 cars for a software issue that may cause them to 'act unsafe around intersections' A Tesla car dealership in Maplewood, Minnesota. Michael Siluk/Getty Images Tesla will issue an over-the-air software update to more than 362,000 cars, NHTSA said Thursday. The carmaker issued the recall over concerns its FSD software may cause it to act "unsafe" in intersections. NHTSA said the beta software "increases the risk of a crash."

Yep Biz Insider led with that it is an OTA update to a BETA program. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
