Tesla Model 3 V9 Software Review: Video

OCT 17 2018 BY MARK KANE 4

New software brings substantial improvement to the Tesla Model 3.

Larry Benjamin, as promised in the Tesla Model 3 review after 7 months of ownership, presents the follow-up video on V9 software.

Here are the topics:

  • autopilot vehicle recognition (shows sizes of vehicles as well as pedestrians/motorcycles)
  • redesigned navigation controls (closer to the driver)
  • redesigned ventilation control (nice looking animation)
  • app launcher
  • better organized media selections
  • web access (could be distracting)
  • classic Atari video games (only when Park)
  • dash cam recording (using pen drive)
  • Autopilot (getting better)
“Larry Benjamin shows most of the features of the newly released Version 9 Software. This includes improvements to the autopilot vehicle recognition, redesigned navigation controls, better organized media selections, classic Atari video games and dash cam recording.”

Nav directions now display on the left side of the nav page. Controls, however are now on the right and a bit harder to reach. I think ventilation display animation looks nicer but is a step backwards in usage. App launcher is okay, it helps to reduce the clutter of app buttons icons. The web browser is very limited from my use of it so far. No streaming music websites and of course, no video works. It’s still more effective to use your phone. Media is easier to use. I would like to add that Tesla has finally added shuffle and repeat to USB devices. The Atari games are fun (and more are coming). A little buggy – the centipede controls don’t work at all for me (either the steering control or the LCD virtual buttons. The TeslaCam is… Read more »
