Tesla hasn’t released a software update since last year! It helps that we’re only 24 days into the year, but still.
The last major software update was the holiday update, 2019.40.50.1, which was released days before Christmas.
The wait could come to an end soon, as Tesla has released a 2020.4 software update in China. According to the release notes, which are specific to China, there are a number of new game and entertainment updates.
One interesting update includes the addition of air quality and weather information available on the in-car display. The existing temperature display on the screen is now interactive – you can touch it and view local weather information including forecasts, chance of rain, humidity, wind, UV index, and air quality.
The air quality index (AQI) is something particularly important in China where despite making progress over the last few years, major cities often experience periods of very poor air quality.
While a number of these features won’t make it into the US and Canadian software updates, including weather information on the in-car display, especially precipitation radar maps would be a welcomed new feature.
The full release notes are below.
