Tesla V10 release notes and features of the much anticipated update

4 min read

One of the more anticipated updated to Tesla’s OS has finally started hitting vehicles with FSD that are part of the Early Access Program (EAP). V10 has a lot of updates, so let’s get into some of the more exciting ones first.

New video game – Cuphead

According to the release notes:

“Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game inspired by cartoons of the 1930s and heavily focused on boss battles. For the Tesla Edition of Cuphead, enjoy the game’s full first Isle as you play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or in local co-op). Traverse strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets while you try to pay your debt back to The Devil!”

Here’s a photo of what it looks like in the new “Tesla Arcade”.

Tesla Theater

Another highly anticiapted feature, ever since Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed it via Twitter, is the ability to stream Netflix and Youtube on the massive screen while parked.

According to the release notes:

“Tesla Theater lets you watch movies and videos when your car is in PARK and connected to WiFi. To launch the Tesla Theater, tap the new ‘Entertainment’ Icon in the Application Launcher and select the Theater tab.”

Here’s a photo of what it looks like:

Caraoke

Another feature announced by Musk via Twitter is car karaoke, or ‘Caraoke’. According to the release notes:

“Sing karaoke to your favorite songs and artists in your car. You can select ‘Caraoke’ from the Media menu. Tap the microphone icon to adjust whether the vocal track plays while you sgn along.”

It appears that while you can play the tracks while driving, the lyrics will only be displayed when the car is in park.

Tesla V10 Driving Visualization

There have already been a few videos of the new visualizations for the Model 3, but now it’s official.

According to the release notes:

“The driving visualization has been improved to display additional types of objects and lane lines around your car in more environments.

Additionally, you can drag and pinch the driving visualization to temporarily adjust view angles and zoom. After a short of inactivity, the visualization will return back to the default position.”

Here’s a quick demo of this new feature that made the internet rounds last month:

Some of the other features included in the update:

Feeling Lucky or Hungry

“Feeling lucky or feeling hungry? Go on a surprise adventure to a nearby attraction by tapping Navigate > Lucky or get directions to a local restaurant chosen by your Tesla by tapping Navigate > Hungry. We have also updated the place popup to include easy access to a website associated with the location if one exists.”

Automatic Lane Change

“The automatic Lane Change visualization has been improved to highlight where in the adjacent lane your car is planning to move to. When Automatic Lane Change is initiated, the adjacent lane is highlighted blue and the target car destination is outlined in white.”

Maps Improvements

“We have improved maps to make it easier to find and navigate to where you want to go. When searching for a destination, the autocomplete search now includes the distance to each suggested place. Also, you can now directly tap the labels on the map to quickly view the associated place details and navigate to that destination.”

Sentry Mode Improvements

“Sentry Model video clips are now saved in a separate folder on your USB drive to make them easier to review and manage. Also, the olders Sentry model video clips will now be automatically deleted if there is not enough space on the USB drive and Sentry Mode clips are using more than 5 Gigabytes of space.”

Joe Mode

“Enabling Joe Mode reduces the volume of your Tesla’s chimes. The quieter chimes continue to alert the driver effectively and minimize disruption to passengers (e.g. Joe’s kids). To enable Joe Mode, tap Controls > Safety & Security > Joe Mode.”

Software Update Improvements

“The software update experience now has more style and grace. You will now know which software update version is being downloaded and to be installed. Also, once the software update has been initiated, you can view the install progress when the touchscreen is on.”

Application Launcher

“The application Launcher has been reordered to make it easier to launch the Phone App. We have also replaced the Tesla Arcade with Tesla Entertainment.”

Here is the new order:

That’s quite the list, and I know I can’t wait to get this update. Any of our readers out there get V10 already? Let us know in the comments.
