Tesla Electric Car Allows You To Customize Your Horn
Tesla has recently announced its latest firmware update, 2020.48.25, just in time for the holiday season. This much-anticipated update boasts a plethora of new features designed to enhance the user experience, including a range of new visual elements and even classic onboard games like Solitaire.
However, the standout feature of this update is the all-new “BoomBox” function, which allows users to customize the sound of their Tesla in unique and exciting ways. While this feature is sure to delight some Tesla owners, it may not be as well-received by their neighbors, as it has the potential to produce some seriously loud and disruptive noise.
Nonetheless, Tesla remains committed to innovation and providing their customers with the latest and greatest features to make their driving experience truly unforgettable.

The 2020.48.25 firmware update is bringing exciting new features to Tesla owners, including the ability to customize the sound of their vehicle’s horn.
With this update, owners of Model S, Model X, Model 3, or Model Y can select from a variety of predefined sounds like applause or the Cucaracha. Even more exciting, the update allows for up to five personalized sounds that can be added via USB key.
This opens up a world of possibilities for owners to get creative and choose their own unique sound effects or melodies. In fact, Elon Musk himself has already revealed his personal choices on Twitter, adding even more buzz and excitement to this highly anticipated update.
Tesla continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible with their innovative technology and commitment to providing the best possible driving experience for their customers.
It’s important to note that in order to enjoy the full range of sounds available with the new “BoomBox” function, your vehicle will need to be equipped with the latest generation of external speakers. Additionally, it’s crucial for Tesla owners to be mindful of local laws and regulations regarding the use of horns.
While it may be tempting to choose a popular song or even a provocative sound as your custom horn, it’s important to use good judgement and avoid any sounds that could be deemed offensive or disruptive to others on the road. As always, safety and respect for others should be the top priority for any Tesla owner.
Electric cars must make noise
In accordance with regulations, electric vehicles are required to produce a sound when traveling below 19 km/h or reversing.
While some automakers have enlisted famous musicians such as Hans Zimmer and Linkin Park to create these sounds, Tesla is taking a different approach. With the “BoomBox” function, Tesla owners can now select their own custom sound to be emitted by their moving vehicle.
This could range from the nostalgic sound of a V8 engine to the iconic noise of a Tie Fighter from the Star Wars franchise. So, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear an unusual sound coming from a Tesla on the road.

Some other improvements included
Tesla has released its latest firmware update, version 2020.48.25, which includes various new features and improvements for its vehicles. One of the enhancements is the ability to preheat the passenger compartment and batteries even if the car is not connected to a power source. This is especially useful in cold weather as preconditioning the battery can help save energy.
Another notable addition is the Full-Self Driving option, which gives users a glimpse into what the current Autopilot system is capable of. While the Autopilot function is not yet available, the upgrade provides an opportunity to see the system in action.
The update also includes visual improvements and new onboard games, such as Solitaire. Tesla owners can download the firmware via OTA (over-the-air) to enjoy these new features.
