the Christmas update has arrived (featuring Sonic the Hedgehog)

As the holiday season approaches, Tesla is rolling out the brand new firmware update for its various models, namely the Model 3, Y, S and X. A 2021.44.25 update which obviously allows the manufacturer to refine the on-board system, but also to bring various new features, some of which are rather unexpected…

Indeed, the new Tesla update is currently being deployed, and is responsible for optimizing the general interface of the vehicle. The new version notably allows the driver to benefit from a wider range of personalization, with the possibility of better managing his shortcuts. Dark mode can also be manually activated in broad daylight if desired. Practice.

On the GPS side, the update allows you to add breakpoints, again with new customization options. Tesla also offers a new on-board temperature pre-conditioning option, which is practical during this winter period.

But it is on the multimedia side that this Tesla update (d) surprises, since the latter notably makes it possible to find… Sonic the Hedgehog. Indeed, the emblematic SEGA Mega Drive game of your childhood / adolescence is now playable directly on the edge screen of your Tesla, with the added bonus of the possibility of using a Mega Drive controller via USB. Added to this is a Sudoku, and a game to face another Tesla owner: The Battle of Polytopia.

Finally, it is important to note that this new version of the Tesla software allows the interface to accommodate the essential… TikTok. Indeed, the application acclaimed by millions of young people around the world (and misunderstood by almost as many millions of “old” people around the world) is making a place for itself in this update, with the possibility of viewing TikTok videos on the edge screen.
