Tesla User Interface V12 features fullscreen Autopilot visualisations for non-Beta cars

    Over the weekend, the official Tesla account published information about the upcoming Spring Release software update. While we’re still waiting for that to reach customer cars, we’ve now got our first look at the new update running on a vehicle.

    X user @The_Alfather has shared a photo of the latest 2024.14 build that shows for the first time, a full-screen visualisation of Autopilot. For those running FSD Beta and now FSD Supervised builds, running a fullscreen visualisation has been possible for quite some time, but this was never available for cars without FSD Beta.

    The image shared shows the car, stopped at a red light, displaying the ‘Autopilot unable to proceed, please take over’ message that we’re familiar with when using regular Autopilot, non-beta cars. On cars that run FSD (Supervised), they can continue from a red light along the route, and don’t see this message.

    The visualisation shows many more cars, along with a far greater draw distance into the horizon. It does lack the road edges and lane lines we’re familiar with from FSD Beta and as such, the cars appear to be floating which is an interesting look.

    This image also provides a good look at the new interface changes, with Navigation options displayed at the bottom of the screen for the first time, along with floating music controls.

    While the right side of the screen is cut off (most likely to protect the wave1 pilot), the 60 MAX does suggest at least some of the current vehicle information is displayed in a familiar place.

    At least for now, according to Tesla’s post, only vehicles running the newer AMD Ryzen processor will get the updated UI. We can expect that this includes the fullscreen graphic of your vehicle when stopped and this updated fullscreen visualisation option when driving.

    It is disappointing to not get official confirmation as to why Intel Atom-based Tesla’s are not getting the update. It is not clear if further optimisation will allow this to roll out in the future or if this is indeed the end of the line for significant updates to pre-AMD cars.

    As it stands, my 2019 Model 3 Performance won’t get these updates, while my wife’s 2022 Model Y will, so moving between these vehicles will certainly be a different, less seamless experience. We are currently on the 2024.8.9 build and expect this update to roll through internal testing in the next week or two and be hitting customer cars before the end of April.
