    not specifically EV related, but note the 2 top 2 highest depreciation, and the hybrid/ev chart.

    interesting reading, especially if you are looking to buy or sell listed models.

    Something that is wild about the Model 3 is that I've been getting a software update about every 2 weeks? Some have bug fixes, some have new features. This new version (v9) has a bunch of new stuff. Some notes:


    New layout on nav screen. Clock / temp moved to left top - homelink / LTE / wifi / bluetooth moved to right. Nav 'next turn' moved to left, default shows 2 upcoming, instead of 5-6 like before. Black bar at bottom (persistent) has some changes also - temp stuff moved, new sub-menu...


    New sub-menu. Also, if you hold down the phone icon it changes to 'ahoy-hoy'


    New changes to how the cameras are used. Cars / SUV / large trucks / motorcycles all get their own icons now, and they're pretty accurate. Also, it'll show cars in your blind spot, and behind you now. Also has new blind spot monitoring if you signal while someone's there....


    Picking up an SUV in front of the car in front of me.


    New HVAC controls visualization. Makes more sense to people, I bet.


    New web browser!


    Built in MAME with Atari games. Can play windowed like this.....


    Or fullscreen


    New realtime power usage charts / graphs.... 15 min rolling view


    On the 5 min you can really see the downhill into my office.

    I'm kind of shocked they would include either of the browser and especially MAME.. who needs people surfing or playing games while driving?!?!

    Doesn't that go against the whole 'don't distract the driver' thing?

    MAME only works when parked (I believe?) - I haven't tried browser while driving. Will do more tests.

    Also, forgot to try the dashcam. Will do some tests this afternoon...

    Updates:

    • MAME Only works when parked
    • Browser works while driving (at least on Autopilot)
    • Websites can use real-time car location


    Browser:


    Using a web-based Waze interface:


    Web-based weather radar, also using location:


    Also, dash cam works and isn't bad at all. Will upload samples tomorrow.
