Drive Tesla Software Update

Late last week Tesla began a limited deployment of its 2020.40 software update in Canada, officially brining speed limit sign recognition north of the border.

So far the release appears to be limited to Model Y owners only, as we have yet to see a Model 3 owner reporting the new software update appearing on their cars.

UPDATE: Model 3 owners are now reporting they are receiving the update too. This 2019 Model 3 owner did not get the heated charge port update.

UPDATE #2: It looks like the Model 3 does not have the heated charge port up to at least March 2020. It was suspected to have been included since then, as that is when the Model Y with a heated charge port was released.

The update also includes the new Bluetooth Priority Device feature, as well as the Glovebox PIN and heated charge port. You can read more about these new features here.

We first told you about Speed Assist coming to Canada last week when Tesla hacker @greentheonly discovered in the code that Canada would be included. The feature, which uses the vehicles cameras to detect speed limit signs and update the display if it differs from the map-based speed limit, first appeared in the US in August.

Let us know in the comments or on Twitter if you have received the update in your Model 3.
