Tesla has come out with its software version 9.0, its “most substantial update yet.” This update is applied for the Model S, Model X and Model 3, and also for the Tesla mobile app. The update comes with a “refined and simplified user interface.”
Tesla’s mobile app after this update will let a Tesla customer initiate the vehicle software update remotely. If you’re a Tesla owner you can use your smartphone to send a destination to your car’s navigation system. You can simply do this by using the “Share” button in any map app.
Those Tesla models built with the Hardware 2.5 (Model S, Model X and Model 3) can now record and store video from its front-facing camera when the car is running. It will allow a Tesla owner to save a video which can be as long as 10 minutes through this Dash cam.
Further, Tesla’s app launcher has been updated too. Tesla on its website mentions “For Model S, Model X and Model 3, the new application launcher brings all your apps together in one place, including your Calendar, Energy, Web Browser, Rear-View Camera, Phone and Charging apps.” And the Model 3 is getting three new apps that will enable web-browsing, calendar integration and real-time energy consumption tracking.
The highly anticipated Navigate on Autopilot feature is still in works and has been listed as “coming soon” by the company.
