A Tesla 2022.40.4.2 release has now been seen, following in from Tesla 2022.40.4.1 release which has been around for nearly 2 weeks. We suspect this is another very minor variant/bug fix to Tesla 2022.40.4

Sentry Mode and Dog Mode

By simultaneously engaging Dog Mode and Sentry Mode, you can ensure the safety of both your vehicle and your dogs. When Dog Mode and Sentry Mode are both activated, the alerts from Sentry Mode are muted. Notifications from mobile apps will still be sent, and saved video footage will not be deleted.

Radio Station Logos

When searching for preferred radio stations, the Media Player now displays the station logos, which increases the player's discoverability.

Improved Charging Efficiency

During DC fast charging, the thermal system controls have been tuned for each charging station's power capabilities, which has the effect of boosting the charging efficiency as well as the efficiency of on-route battery preconditioning. This leads in a faster charging time as well as lower costs associated with the use of energy.

Driver Door Unlock Mode

When the Driver Door Unlock Mode is activated, holding down the inside switch for the driver door for an extended period of time will unlock all of the doors and the trunk. Tap the Controls button, then go to the Lock menu, and finally select the Driver Door Unlock Mode option.

Regenerative Braking

When the regenerative braking function of your car is limited, either because of the temperature of the battery or the amount of charge it has, your vehicle is now able to automatically deploy the normal brakes. To activate, go to the Controls menu, then select Pedals & Steering, and then select the Apply Brakes When Regenerative Braking Is Limited option.

Tire Configuration

In order to have an improved driving experience, it is recommended that you reset the learned tire settings as soon as possible after rotating, swapping, or replacing the tires. To perform a factory reset, navigate through the menus as follows: Controls > Service > Wheel & Tire Configuration > Tires.

Exterior Lighting

Hebrew language support has been added to your navigation system's voice guiding. To change the language that is used for voice navigation, navigate to Controls > Display > Voice Navigation Language.

Sentry Mode Live Camera Access

tesla 2022.40.4.2

Before you return to your parked Tesla, you can use the app to obtain a bird's-eye view of the area around it to make sure it's safe. As a result, Tesla cannot access the Live Camera feed because it is encrypted from start to finish. Select "Safety" from the touchscreen interface's Controls menu, then tap "View Live Camera using Mobile App," and finally, you'll be able to see what's going on in real time by using your smartphone.

Keep in mind that Premium Connectivity is required for this function. This functionality is not meant to be used in a way that captures private domains or records other people. When you utilize the live camera, you agree that you are solely responsible for any claims made by a third party.

Supercharger Additional Details

Additional Tooltips
