2024.14.3 Locking Differentials

Locking Differentials

You can now engage the locking differentials. On uneven or slippery terrain, if a wheel has limited or no traction, Cybertruck will direct torque to the opposite wheel. This helps the vehicle continue moving in low-traction environments.
For off-roading, choose from the locking differential options on the vehicle status area, or in the Off-Road app.
Engaging locking differentials while driving on roads is helpful if you temporarily need extra grip on loose or uneven terrain, such as getting un-stuck from a snow bank. Navigate to Dynamics > Engage Rear Locking Differential.
Use with caution as maneuverability and traction are reduced when turning. Don’t use on high-traction surfaces such as asphalt. Doing so will result in damage to the drivetrain. Refer to the Owner’s Manual before using this feature.

2024.14.3 Trail Assist

Trail Assist

Trail Assist maintains a set cruising speed with minimal slip on rough or steep terrain so you can focus on steering. Adjust the set speed by swiping on the right scroll wheel. Unlike cruise control, when you brake, Trail Assist stays active and resumes the set speed when you release the pedal.
To enable, go to Controls > Dynamics > Off-Road Mode > Trail Assist. This feature won’t steer, navigate, avoid obstacles, stop, or otherwise operate the vehicle on its own. Continue to pay attention and be ready to take immediate action. Refer to the Owner's Manual for more information.

2024.14.3 Slippery Surface

In your vehicle settings, go to Dynamics > Slippery Surface.

2024.14 Extras

Extras

As with all updates, release family 2024.8 includes some undocumented features that many owners report. These include:

  • Navigation The route behind the car ont he Nav is now shown in a different colour.
  • Speedometer is now larger
  • Energy bar showing regen/power used is now vertical and much harder to see
  • Pop over menus like the media player, as well as being reworked, are now translucent on Ryzen cars
  • Control buttons such as opening the trunk are now available even when rotating the car visual in park, accessed by touching the appropriate dots. In addition, the truck opening can now be paused mid way via the screen on cars with a powered trunk.
  • Navigation and Climate App icons have been added that can be placed in the dock area for quick access
  • Sentry mode creates a dedicated file for remote app access and which can also stored on the memory stick.
  • Charging details when accessing the charging app have been moved as part of the general UI refresh. There are a number of small and largely trivial changes to menus and layout across the whole UI.

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 really 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.

If you visit the software screen and see the car hasn't checked for a few days, perform a scroll wheel reset. The car typically checks as soon as it reboots and we've had a software update immediately afterwards as a result.

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.
