Tesla adds Sirius XM improvements in 2020.24.6.4 software update

Tesla MCU upgrade

It seems like a lot of the newest features being released via free over-the-air (OTA) software updates has been geared towards owners of the Model 3.

But in good news for Model S and Model X owners, Tesla has pushed out yet another software update, 2020.24.6.4, with a nice update only for them.

For the most part, the update has all the same features found in 2020.24.6.3, which was released on Canada Day, with one exception – Sirius XM Improvements.

According to the release notes, it is now easier to find the music and stations you want to listen to thanks to improvements to the interface.

This change applies only to the Model X and Model S vehicles that are already equipped with the Sirius XM interface. There have been many requests by Tesla owners for the automaker to include an interface in their most popular vehicle, the Model 3, but they have so far gone unanswered.

A closer look at the source code for this improvement, which was posted to Twitter by resident Tesla hacker @greentheonly, shows that it will be available in a number of countries, including Canada and the US.

Here are the full release notes for this improvement:
