Tesla issued the latest firmware 8.1, updating its cars over-the-air and improving features such as the Autopilot 2.0.
All carsequipped with the Autopilot 2.0
can now enable it for speeds up to 80mph (129km/h), raising the system’s speed limit from 55mph (88km/h), while Tesla also updated the Auto Lane Change and Summon features among others.
But with Tesla being Tesla, the latest firmware update also addeda new easter egg
for owners to enjoy.
Elon Musk actually gave the instructions on accessing it via his social media, tweeting “If you just downloaded V8.1, tap the the T on center screen three times”.
What this does is that opens a new sketch pad function on the giant tablet-like screen, allowingthe driver
(or anyone with access to a Tesla) to draw whatever they like on the infotainment display.
Tesla even gave the owners the option of submitting their… artwork back to them to critique their “artistic masterpieces”.
