If you're a fast scrolling type you'll see that there are a lot of pictures here and even a video at the bottom (I was doing simultaneous Tesla and toilet upgrades-- pretty sure that is a YouTube first). While I often seek to dazzle readers with extraneous photography, this time the pictures are here for coherent purposes in three sections. First we'll look the old graphics, then at the upgade/installation process and then we'll see what Tesla has wrought.
Stepping into the Tesla for the last 3 months has always yielded the beautiful view above. Rich and dark grey and black tones with Serena spotlit in the middle. I choose to think of it as a model on a catwalk but I suppose as the car ages and IF it ever gets glitchy, that will morph into the bright light of an interrogator's lamp. "WHY WON'T YOU ____?!?"
The webpage I have open in this picture is a handy one-- even has a notepad function that appears to save your inputs from one day/user to the next. It could be a very handy message board.
Back to the dash display with the car in drive mode, you can see the speedo-kilo-regeno-meter has replaced our fashion model car picture. The background is a brushed black aluminum type surface and the main dial has a burnished quality to it.
Happy Fun Ball.
Omigosh... here it goes! What follows is a spooky sequence of creaks, groans, flashing headlights, louvers popping and loud clicks. This drama goes on for the duration of the installation and charging will stop for most of it. Your clue that all is back to normal will be when charging resumes and your UMC's green Cylon light starts happily throbbing again.
Viewing the center display the only apparent change is the addition of the calendar app's button. It does show the current date on the button (so you can see how much procrastination went into writing this post-- DOH!) but otherwise all the backgrounds and textures are unchanged. Launching the calendar app is a good way to remind yourself that you ONLY HAVE A TRACFONE. Sigh.
I will reluctantly concede the point.
But I still miss the old graphics-- at least up until the moment I see the orange needle fly up!
