2022.44 Bugs Introduced in release

Bugs Introduced in release

The following may be hardware or country specific

  • Temperature display seems to give wildly fluctuating temperatures at times, especially when cold. Possibly linked, the Auto Defogging seems to now stay on much longer, even accounting for the colder weather in the northern hemisphere. We suspect the outdoor temperature may be a parameter to the auto defogging control.
  • Sentry, defaults to not using the cameras. Not so much an issue, but something to be aware of if you like to use camera based detection, something useful in car parks. It’s easy to turn them back in.
  • Charging preconditioning seems to now not sufficiently heat the battery in the cold even after an hours drive with the V3 supercharger set as the destination. This seems to be an adverse consequence of the efficiency changes made in recent releases. Our screen shots elsewhere in the release notes were taken after such a journey.
  • Cabin Overheat Protection temperature can fail to accept a lower temeprature when setting it from the App.

2022.44 FSD Beta 10.69.25.1 (2022.44.30.5)

FSD Beta 10.69.25.1 (2022.44.30.5)

The FSD City Streets Beta has been merged into the 2022.44 Holiday release

See Release Notes 2022.44.25 for details of the Holiday release base.

The specific update for FSDb is largely a repeat of previous release notes, including:

You can enable Full Self-Driving (Beta) by tapping 'Control' > 'Autopilot' > 'Full Self-Driving (Beta)' and following the instructions.

Full Self-Driving is in early limited access Beta and must be used with additional caution. It may do the wrong thing at the worst time, so you must always keep your hands on the wheel and pay extra attention to the road. Do not become complacent. When Full Self-Driving is enabled your vehicle will make lane changes off highway, select forks to follow your navigation route, navigate around other vehicles and objects, and make left and right turns. Use Full Self-Driving in limited Beta only if you will pay constant attention to the road, and be prepared to act immediately, especially around blind corners, crossing intersections, and in narrow driving situations.

Your vehicle is running on Tesla Vision! Note that Tesla Vision also includes some temporary limitations, follow distance is limited to 2-7 and Autopilot top speed is 85 mph.

Failure to comply with the instructions, or cause a "strike" may result in your inclusion in the FSDb programme from being withdrawn. This includes the use of defeat devices, failing to pay attention, or any other activity the car detects that put you or other road users at risk.

One specific change that appears to have first been seen with release 2022.44.30.5 is change to the suspension warning and the introduction of a two week ban. Anyone that gets sttikes or fails to obtain the necessary safety score should find any issues clearing after a few weeks.

2022.44 FSD Beta v10.69.25 (2022.44.25.5)

FSD Beta v10.69.25 (2022.44.25.5)

Musk had suggested the V11 FSD City streets Beta release would be out before year end however it looks like this will be next year and those on the FSDb pilot will get this unifying release which includes everything in the holiday release plus the latest FSDb code. The release notes are familiar, and only repeated here for completeness.

  • Upgraded the Object Detection network to photon count video streams and retrained all parameters with the latest autolabeled datasets (with a special emphasis on low visibility scenarios). Improved the architecture for better accuracy and latency, higher recall of far away vehicles, lower velocity error of crossing vehicles by 20%, and improved Vulnerable Road User (VRU) precision by 20%.
  • Converted the VRU Velocity network to a two-stage network, which reduced latency and improved crossing pedestrian velocity error by 6%.
  • Converted the Non VRU Attributes network to a two-stage network, which reduced latency, reduced incorrect lane assignment of crossing vehicles by 45%, and reduced incorrect parked predictions by 15%.
  • Reformulated the autoregressive Vector Lanes grammar to improve precision of lanes by 9.2%, recall of lanes by 18.7%, and recall of forks by 51.1%. Includes a full network update where all components were re-trained with 3.8x the amount of data.
  • Added a new "road markings" module to the Vector Lanes neural network which improves lane topology error at intersections by 38.9%.
  • Upgraded the Occupancy Network to align with road surface instead of ego for improved detection stability and improved recall at hill crest.
  • Reduced runtime of candidate trajectory generation by approximately 80% and improved smoothness by distilling an expensive trajectory optimization procedure into a lightweight planner neural network.
  • Improved decision making for short deadline lane changes around gores by richer modeling of the trade-off between going off-route vs trajectory required to drive through the gore region
  • Reduced false slowdowns for pedestrians near crosswalk by using a better model for the kinematics of the pedestrian
  • Added control for more precise object geometry as detected by general occupancy network.
  • Improved control for vehicles cutting out of our desired path by better modeling of their turning / lateral maneuvers thus avoiding unnatural slowdowns
  • Improved longitudinal control while offsetting around static obstacles by searching over feasible vehicle motion profiles
  • Improved longitudinal control smoothness for in-lane vehicles during high relative velocity scenarios by also considering relative acceleration in the trajectory optimization
  • Reduced best case object photon-to-control system latency by 26% through adaptive planner scheduling, restructuring of trajectory selection, and parallelizing perception compute. This allows us to make quicker decisions and improves reaction time.
  • Introduced foundational support for model-parallel neural network inference by sharing intermediate tensors across Systems on Chips (SOCs) to improve road edge and road line prediction consistency through changes to TRIP compiler, inference runtime, and inter-processor communication layer.
  • Improved handling of traffic control behavior in dense intersection areas by improving the association logic between traffic lights and intersections.
Press the "Video Record" button on the top bar UI to share your feedback. When pressed, your vehicle's external cameras will share a short VIN-associated Autopilot Snapshot with the Tesla engineering team to help make improvements to FSD. You will not be able to view the clip.

2022.44 Full Self Driving (Beta) Suspension

Full Self Driving (Beta) Suspension

The FSD City Streets Beta gives a lot of autonomous potential to the driver while still being a level 2 system. As such, inappropriate use is a risk and Tesla are reinforcing their warnings. This includes detection of steering defeat cheats where some owners were attaching a weight to the steering sheel to fool the car into thinking the steering wheel was being held. The release note message follows:

For maximum safety and accountability, use of Full Self-Driving (Beta) will be suspended if improper usage is detected. Improper usage is when you, or another driver of your vehicle, receive five 'Forced Autopilot Disengagements'. A disengagement is when the Autopilot system disengages for the remainder of a trip after the driver receives several audio and visual warnings for inattentiveness. Driver-initiated disengagements do not count as improper usage and are expected from the driver. Keep your hands on the wheel and remain attentive at all times. Use of any hand-held devices while using Autopilot is not allowed.

The warning drivers get looks like this: Tesla FSD Warning

Full Self-Driving (Beta) Suspension

Autopilot Improvements

Driver-initiated disengagements do not count as improper usage and are expected from the driver. Keep your hands on the wheel and remain attentive at all times. Use of any hand-held devices while using Autopilot is not allowed.
The FSD Beta feature can only be removed per this suspension method and it will be unavailable for approximately two weeks.

2022.44 Seat Belt System Enhancement

Seat Belt System Enhancement

With the help of Tesla Vision, seat belts will begin to tighten and protect properly restrained occupants earlier in a wider array of frontal crashes.

Seat belt pretension was first introduced in release 2022.20 and is a feature available on most cars today, largely due to either regulation or a feature the various safety rating systems such as NCAP look for. In an accident sitution, even fractions of a second can help to secure the occupants of a car better before impact.

This appears to be a re-release of the existing feature, presumably with some under the cover enhancements which hopefully nobody will need to test.

Reboot after an update

Lot's of people have random issues after a software install, many of them curing themselves after a reboot. As a general rule, we'd suggest always doing a scroll wheel reboot after a software update, simply press the two steering wheel scroll wheels until the screen turns off and then let go. The screen will come back within a minute or so, depending on hardware. It's certainly worth doing this is you notice any unusual behaviour, but prevention is better than cure. There's a second reset option which is to change the car configuration slightly, either the language, or wheel type. This also causes the car to do a soft reset and this has returned missing features such as Tidal. Our Guide to rebooting your Tesla provides more details.

How to get the latest Tesla Software Update?

In a word, you can't force it yourself although you can help the car to download the update once it's been allocated to have an update. To do so, connect the car to wifi, and maybe even consider a wireless hotspot when in use. Car's not connected to wifi generally do not receive updates quickly.

You may find the car sticks at 50% for a while. We've seen reports that keeping the car awake will help speed past past this point as the car will try and sleep and halt the process. Even keeping the mobile phone app open may help to prevent the car sleeping.

Why do I not get some of the features or changes mentioned?

There are a number of reasons why a particular feature or change may not be included when your car upgrades. These include regional restrictions, hardware specific features, model specific updates and some changes are linked to software options purchased such as EAP or FSD. There are also times when software release notes are provided but only Tesla test engineers get the updates.

Not having a listed feature or update for a particular car is therefore quite normal. Some websites try to detail which cars get which features but this is often inaccurate, such as the blended braking update that came out with 2022.16 and the alternate routes option in 2022.28.

Against each release note we now list the car models and countries where a particular release note has been seen.

I thought I already had a listed feature?

Just as a feature may not land in every car, the feature may be mentioned in later releases when your car already has it. The release notes in the car are tuned to your car so, and while in general the car will only report a new feature once, that is not a rule that always holds true. Some websites say the feature is not available in your country whereas the reality is the feature has been there for some time

I'm on the FSD City Streets Beta

The FSD City Streets Beta is usually 2 to 3 releases behind the general software releases. This is normal.

Numbering convention

Release notes are numbered roughly using the a year.family.major.minor format. The year is self explanatory, the family release typically increments in 4's and is roughly the week of the year when the release family is launched, although these tend to slip over the course of the year. The major and minor release numbers of much debated, we personally believe these rarely contain new features not included in the family, and if there are differences it is linked to hardware specific versions.

When reviewing release notes, you may be interested in how a feature has evolved. To enable this we have also included a keyword search where you can search for a word or phrase and we will filter the results accordingly.
