Tesla has released a new over-the-air software update v7.1 (2.20.45) for the Model X, according to recent reports.
The update reportedly improves owner-control of the falcon wing doors and the model’s electronically actuated seats — through the inclusion of an option to control the second-row seating from the control touchscreen in the front.
The update also allows for greater keyfob control of the doors and trunk hatch. Teslarati provides more:
Model X owners are also presented with a feature that will close the falcon-wing doors, self-presenting front doors, and even the rear trunk hatch all in a single swoop through a press of the key fob. Prior to this feature, closing the sophisticated doors on the Model X required a combination of actions that included touching the door control via the center touchscreen plus the physical press of either the key fob which would only close the front doors, or the B-pillar mounted falcon wing door switches assuming one hand’t already closed it via the touchscreen.
…Model X second-row seat adjustments are substantially improved in this version. This includes the ingress and egress of passengers in the vehicle’s third row, which prior to the update required a delicate balance between adjusting the seats via a button mounted on the back of the second-row seat, and the re-adjustment of the first row seat.
Sounds interesting. Even if a perhaps a bit abstract for those of us who don’t own a Model X. Any owners have any comments to make on the update? And, for that matter, any major issues with the falcon-wing doors to date? Or has everything been working as advertised?
