Tesla is currently pushing the 2020.20.16 software update to Early Access Program (EAP) users with widespread release expected in the next week or so. It includes some significant improvements to the backup camera, Dashcam Viewer and Cabin Camera.

Dashcam Viewer Improvements

To make Sentry Mode videos easier to review, we have added a red do along the video scrubber to indicate the moment when a sentry event was triggered. When playing Sentry Mode video, the Dashcam viewer will skip ahead and begin playback right before this point.

Walk-Away Door Lock Improvements

You now have the option to disable Walk-Away Door Lock when your vehicle is parked at Home. Tap Controls > Locks and select "Exclude Home"

Note: To save a home location, tap Navigate > Set Home.

On-Route Battery Warmup

Your vehicle will now precondition the battery when navigating to third party fast charging stations, in addition to Superchargers. As usual, you canfind a list of nearby third party charging stations by tapping on the lightening bolt icon on the bottom of your touchscreen.

New Language Support

You can now select Portugese as your language. To update your language setting tap Controls > Display and select the desired option from the Language drop down menu.

Note: Your vehicle must be in PARK to change languages.

Tesla 2020 20 16 cabin camera enable
Cabin Camera

Help Tesla continue to develop safer vehicles by sharing camera data from your vehicle. This update will allow you to enable the built-in cabin camera above the rearview mirror. If enabled, Tesla will automatically capture images and a short video clip just prior to a collision or safety event to help engineers develop safety features and enhancements in the future.

As usual, you can adjust your data sharing preferences by tapping Controls > Safety & Security > DATA SHARING > Allow Cabin Camera Analytics.

Note: Cabin camera images and video clips will not be associated with your VIN to protect your privacy.

This release contains minor improvements and bug fixes.
