v10 is coming

So – Who else got an email being all excited about v10?

Looking at ev-fw.com , 2019.32.11 seems to be in general release now.  I also find it interesting that they make a big deal about Spotify – because US cars haven’t had that before – one area where we’re ahead on international cars..

CCS2 Adapter for Model S and X now available

We’ve finally got our hands on the long anticipated CCS Combo 2 adapter in Perth.

As per the information at https://www.tesla.com/en_AU/support/supercharging

  • All Tesla Model S and Model X vehicles produced after May 1, 2019 have the technical capability to charge at CCS Combo 2 charging sites with the use of a CCS Combo 2 adapter.
  • Owners of older Model S and Model X will require a service retrofit in order to take advantage of CCS Combo 2 charging via adapter – you may schedule a service retrofit at your local Tesla service center via your Tesla mobile app.
  • CCS Combo 2 retrofit service will cost $798, including the cost of a CCS Combo 2 adapter ($271 when purchased separately).

Como Car Show

Our next casual meetup date coincides with the Como Rotary Car Show at Wesley College, so we thought it might be good to do both!


If you’d like to display your car – and we’d hope to have a few Model 3’s in Perth by then, it’d be great to have a good contingent of Teslas there.  Please get in touch via email to Ken or Rob if you’re interested and we’ll get you on the list.

Web Browser is here, plus School Zones – version 2019.32 updates

We’ve had our first update to bring some new functionality for a while (unless you count games).

Software v2019.32 adds the long-missing Web-browser to Australian cars

It only functions in Park, as soon as you engage a gear, it closes, but it’s still handy to have.

Also added in this version is support for Australian School Zones – the display now shows the time-based speed limit below the default one

(sorry for the slightly blurry photo – taken by my son while I was driving)

The database of school zones is still taking shape – some are missing, so keep an eye out, and feel free to let us know if you find missing ones – I noticed that it doesn’t know about the school zone on Pearson St adjacent to Churchlands Primary School but it does seem to know about the ones around Churchlands SHS and Newman.
