2022.4.5.17 Tesla Software Update and Release Notes

Tesla sent a new software update to a number of cars on Friday evening, version 2022.4.5.17.

Unfortunately, despite being sent to some cars currently in the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta queue in Canada, this update only includes bug fixes and general improvements.

2022.4.5.17 Patch Notes

cabin camera

Help Tesla improve the intelligence of features that rely on the cabin camera by sharing your vehicle’s analytics. When enabled, data from the cabin cameras will be shared with Tesla if the vehicle experiences a safety-critical event such as a collision, or if the cabin camera functionality requires diagnostics. This data includes short video clips from the cabin camera to help us further develop future safety features and software enhancements such as collision avoidance updates. As usual, you can adjust your data sharing preferences by tapping Controls > Software > Data Sharing > Allow Cabin Camera Analytics.

Regenerative braking on autopilot

Autopilot will now use more regenerative braking at low speeds for greater efficiency and an improved driving experience, especially in traffic jams. Increased use of regenerative braking reduces brake pedal noise and smoother stops.

car colorizer

Customize the way your car looks on the touchscreen and mobile app with Car Colorizer. Change the color of your car’s exterior by tapping the Controls icon > Software > Colorizer or using Colorizer in the ToyBox.

Save dash cam clips

Quickly save Dashcam clips by adding the Dashcam icon to your bottom bar. Simply long-press any app icon to enter edit mode, then drag Dashcam to the bottom bar for quick access. Tap the Dashcam icon to manually record a clip while driving.
