Tesla begins wide release of 2020.16.2.1 software update in Canada

Drive Tesla Software Update

It took a few weeks after the first US customers started receiving Tesla’s 2020.16 software update, but the automaker has now started pushing the 2020.16.2.1 update to vehicles across Canada.

Tesla owners in Canada were hopeful this update would finally include the Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control (Beta) feature that has been in the US for several months now.

Elon Musk said a few weeks ago that the feature, which automatically stops at traffic lights and stop signs when Autopilot or Traffic Aware Cruise Control (TACC) is engaged, was coming to Canada “in a few weeks”.

Unfortunately it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer, as this feature was not included in the release notes.

This update also includes the new pedestrian visualization, which shows the pedestrian actually walking across the screen, instead of just sliding across like it was on rails before. This new visualization also works in cars equipped with the older HW2.5 computers.

Here are the full release notes:

Tesla Toybox

The Tesla Toybox has been redesigned to make it easier to view and play. Simply scroll through the toys and adjust the associated controls. As before, to access the Tesla Toybox, tap the Toybox icon from the Application Launcher.

Nearby Charging Sites

The charging list has been improved to easily filter nearby charging sites based on max power. Simply tap the charging icon on the map and filter by selecting the associated lighting bolt icons.

Dashcam Improvements

Dashcam is now easier to setup or erase. After plugging in a USB drive, tap Controls > Safety & Security > FORMAT USB DEVICE to format and create the associated folders for Dashcam. Note: Formatting the USB drive will also delete any existing clips.

Backgammon Improvements

Playing Backgammon against your Tesla has now become more difficult. The most difficult level has now been trained with 20+ million games. Challenge your Tesla to a game by tapping the Application Launcher, then tap Entertainment > Arcade > Backgammon. Note: As usual, the Tesla Arcade is only available when your car is in PARK.

This release contains minor improvements and bug fixes.
