Driving during a software update
From time to time, Tesla launches software updates that introduce new features and fix bugs. The download process is handled in the background. But during the installation of software updates you are unable to drive your car. That’s a safety measure, in case the update fails.
Scheduling an update
Because you can’t drive your Tesla during an update, we recommend scheduling the installation (for example during the night).
Open the update notification, and touch the Set For This Time button. Once scheduled, the yellow clock icon changes to a white color. You can reschedule the update anytime before it begins.
