2022.20.5 Tesla Release Notes

Tire Configuration

Vehicle Improvements
for Model Y

Reset the learned tire settings directly after a tire rotation, swap, or replacement to improve your driving experience. To reset, tap Controls > Service > Wheel & Tire Configuration > Tires.


Car Colorizer

for Model S2021+, 3, X2021+, Y

Customize how your car appears on the touchscreen and mobile app with the Car Colorizer. Change the color of your car’s exterior by tapping Controls > Software > Colorizer icon, or using Colorizer in the ToyBox.


Cabin Camera

Model S 2021+ and Model X 2021+
Only in Germany

The cabin camera above your rearview mirror can now determine driver inattentiveness and provide you with audible alerts, to remind you to keep your eyes on the road when Autopilot is engaged. Camera images do not leave the vehicle itself, which means the system cannot save or transmit information unless you enable data sharing. To change your data settings, tap Controls > Software > Data Sharing on your car’s touchscreen. Cabin camera does not perform facial recognition or any other method of identity verification.


Online Radio

for Model 3, Model Y, Model S and Model X

Your internet radio service provider has been switched to EtherealSound, providing an improved selection of radio stations and content for your drive.


Speed Assist

for Model 3, Model Y, Model S and Model X

Speed Assist now leverages your car’s cameras to detect speed limit signs. This improves the accuracy of speed limit data on local roads and highways in select countries. Detected speed limit signs will be displayed in the driving visualization.


Sentry Mode

for Model 3, Model Y, Model S 2021+ and Model X 2021+

Sentry Mode continuously monitors your car’s surroundings while it’s locked and parked. When enabled, the car automatically enters the Standby state with its cameras and sensors remain powered to detect potential threats and trigger an appropriate response state: Alert or Panic. To enable Sentry Mode, go to Controls > Safety > Sentry Mode.

If a minimal threat is detected, such as someone leaning on your car, Sentry Mode switches to the Alert state, displaying a message on your touchscreen indicating that cameras are recording.

If a major threat is detected, such as someone breaking a window, Sentry Mode switches to the Panic state. In this state, the touchscreen increases to maximum brightness, and you receive a notification on your mobile app.

To save the video clip captured while in Sentry Mode, you must insert a formatted USB flash drive into one of your USB ports beforehand. Sentry Mode requires more than 20% battery to operate. If your battery falls below 20% while the feature is active, Sentry Mode turns off and you receive a notification on your mobile app.

Note that Sentry Mode is designed to enhance the security of your car, but cannot protect your car from all possible threats.


Seat Belt System Enhancement

for Model S2021+, 3, X2021+, and Y
Available Only in Germany

This enhancement builds upon your vehicle’s superior crash protection – based upon regulatory and industry standard crash testing- by now using Tesla Vision to help offer some of the most cutting-edge seat belt pretensioner performance in the event of a frontal crash. Your seat belts will now begin to tighten and protect properly restrained occupants earlier in a wider array of frontal crashes.


TESLA ADAPTIVE SUSPENSION

for Model S, and X
Not available in Germany

Tesla Adaptive Suspension will now adjust ride height for an upcoming rough road section. This adjustment may occur at various locations, subject to availability, as the vehicle downloads rough road map data generated by Tesla cars. The instrument cluster will continue to indicate when the suspension is raised for comfort. To enable this feature, tap Controls > Suspension > Adaptive Suspension Damping, and select the Comfort or Auto setting.


Green Traffic Light Chime

for Model 3, Model Y, Model S and Model X

A chime will play when the traffic light you are waiting for turns green. If you are waiting behind another vehicle, the chime will play once the vehicle advances unless Traffic-Aware Cruise Control or Autosteer is active.

Note: This chime is only designed as a notification. It is the driver’s responsibility to observe their environment and make decisions accordingly.
