This Week in Tesla: Destination Charging May Become Costly, New Software Update Provides Helpful Features

Destination Charging May Become Costly

Tesla has recently been pushing businesses apart of their destination charging program to upgrade to the newest, 3rd Generation Wall Connector. The Destination Charging program allows for businesses to purchase and install their own Tesla Wall Connectors, in exchange for being listed on Tesla’s website as a charging location. This provides more business from electron-hungry owners, who need to charge while eating a meal, or spending the night at a hotel. The newest Wall Connector adds WiFi connectivity, which can be used to remotely monitor the output of an individual Wall Connector. This push from Tesla will likely result in more fees for using Destination Chargers, as currently there will typically be a designated fee to use the chargers, or sometimes they will even be free to use. The new features added to the Wall Connector will allow businesses to charge customers based on how much energy they use, possibly resulting in a more expensive charging experience for owners. 


New Software Update Provides Helpful Features -

The most significant feature in the new 2020.31.1 software update only affects Raven Model S & X owners. The new software allows for a much more detailed adjustment of the air suspension system. The update allows owners to see not only the height of each wheel, but the compression current, rebound current, and the acceleration forces. The update also allows for more refined adjustment to the ride comfort and handling. The other significant feature released in the update helps the more forgetful owners, who may have left a door, the trunk, or a window open while parked. The new update will allow owners to select whether or not they would like to be alerted via the Tesla app if a window or door is left open. If enabled, an alert will be sent to the owner if the car is parked, and no one is detected inside of the vehicle for 10 minutes.
