2022.8.2 Tesla Software Update & Release Notes

After seemingly skipping a public release of 2022.8 altogether, Tesla has started releasing 2022.8.2, which contains a number of new features.

As mentioned in the NHTSA recall notice, this version disables the Boombox feature while in Drive. Transport Canada has not issued the same recall, so Canadian owners will hopefully not see this feature disabled.

If you are in Canada and have received 2022.8.2, let us know if you are still able to use Boombox while driving.

UPDATE: Unfortunately Boombox while in Drive has been disabled in Canada.

According to update tracker Not A Tesla App, there is also one undocumented change to improve the responsiveness of the backup camera.
