Tesla speed limit sign recognition

Last week’s initial roll-out of Tesla’s latest software update 2020.36 included the ability for the car to read speed limit signs, display them on the screen, and adjust the car’s speed as necessary.

As with previous releases like Smart Summon the Full-Self Driving (FSD) preview, it looks like Canada is being left out of the party again and this latest feature isn’t coming to Canada…yet.

According to Tesla hacker @greentheonly, the speed limit sign recognition is only available in the US, UK, and European Union (EU) for now.

This news was also verified by two Drive Tesla readers in Canada who received the update on a Model S and Model 3 today. As indicated by green, the release notes only include the Autosteer Stop Sign and Stop Light Warning, which will warn a driver if the vehicle detects you are about to run a red light or stop sign.


When will this feature come to Canada? Going on previous experience with other features that were released elsewhere first, Canadian Tesla owners could see this feature in a few weeks, like when Smart Summon was released last year.

Then again, it could also be several months, as was the case when Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control (TLSSC) was released in Canada two months after it arrived in the US.

You can check out the release notes along with videos and photos of the new features in action from our 2020.36 Software Update article last week.

Let us know in the comments below if you have received 2020.36 on your Tesla in Canada.

UPDATE: 2020.36 in the Model S/X also includes “Suspension Instrument Panel Display”, which displays the real-time suspension visualization that was recently released on the instrument panel, and not just the center display.
