Tesla starts fighting third-party software

Tesla starts fighting third-party software

August 24, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The new “firmware” of Tesla electric vehicles has learned to automatically detect third-party software and warn about it with a special notification.

Thus, an American corporation encourages its own customers to use only licensed software, which, as a rule, is several times more expensive than its analogues. A prime example is the Acceleration Boost option, which provides an additional 50 hp in performance. and reducing the acceleration time to the first 100 kph to 3.8 seconds. Officially, its cost is $ 2,000, while on the side this option can be installed 2 times cheaper.

However, now electric cars of the American brand automatically find “someone else’s” software, and their owners see the corresponding volumetric notification on the screen, informs Electrek.

You can get rid of an extra icon in two ways: either roll back the firmware to the factory configurations and erase third-party software, or wait for a new version of the latter, the appearance of which, as practice demonstrates, quite often takes several months.

In addition, it was recently noted that the Tesla Model S electric car is going to be turned into an “eco-friendly” hearse. It should be emphasized that a similar idea came to the head of the specialists of the British company Coleman Mine.
