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.

- Upgraded decision making framework for unprotected left turns with better modeling of objects' response to ego's actions by adding more features that shape the go/no-go decision. This increases robustness to noisy measurements while being more sticky to decisions within a safety margin. The framework also leverages median safe regions when necessary to maneuver across large turns and accelerating harder through maneuvers when required to safely exit the intersection.

- Improved creeping for visibility using more accurate lane geometry and higher resolution occlusion detection.

- Reduced instances of attempting uncomfortable turns through better integration with object future predictions during lane selection.

- Upgraded planner to rely less on lanes to enable maneuvering smoothly out of restricted space.

- Increased safety of turns with crossing traffic by improving the architecture of the lanes neural network which greatly boosted recall and geometric accuracy of crossing lanes.

- Improved the recall and geometric accuracy of all lane predictions by adding 180k video clips to the training set.

- Reduced traffic control related false slowdowns through better integration with lane structure and improved behavior with respect to yellow lights.

- Improved the geometric accuracy of road edge and line predictions by adding a mixing/coupling layer with the generalized static obstacle network.

- Improved geometric accuracy and understanding of visibility by retraining the generalized static obstacle network with improved data from the autolabeler and by adding 30k more videos clips.

- Improved recall of motorcycles, reduced velocity error of close-by pedestrians and bicyclists, and reduced heading error of pedestrians by adding new sim and autolabeled data to the training set.

- Improved precision of the "is parked" attribute on vehicles by adding 41k clips to the trai

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 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 80mph.

When You Plug In — Clear away ice and other debris from your charging cable connector and charge port, and check that they’re fully connected.

When You Unplug — After charging in frozen conditions, if you can’t unplug, try warming the charge port inlet:

In the Tesla app, you can turn on Defrost Car, or in the vehicle, turn on the Rear Defrost. Alternatively you can prepare ahead of time: In the Tesla app, go to Schedule > Departure, or in your vehicle settings, go to Charging > Schedule > Settings > Preconditioning.

If warming alone is unsuccessful, you can pull the manual release (in the trunk) to disengage the charge port latch.

Tesla has redesigned the Trips menu under Controls > Trips. The new design features 'Reset' buttons directly next to the trip meter instead of all the way at the bottom.

The 'Show in Trips Card' is now aligned right on the same row, allowing all trip meters fit on the screen without having to scroll.

Each trip meter is now easier to read at a glance as well. The details for each trip meter are now grouped in a darker gray color.

In the Charging menu, Tesla provides various tips when Supercharging such as not taking up adjacent stalls since some Superchargers share power between neighboring stalls.

Another tip has been added. Tesla states that water vapor coming out of the car while Supercharging in cold conditions is normal. Recently some owners have been confusing the steam that is emitted from the vehicle for smoke.

Supercharging Tips can be accessed by going to Controls > Charging and tapping on Supercharging Tips.
