Following Tesla’s move to change free trials for Premium Connectivity to just 30 days for Model Y and 3 units, one developer has discovered a new in-car page for subscribing to the feature.

@Greentheonly discovered a new in-car page for subscribing to Tesla’s Premium Connectivity, as shown in a screenshot shared by the developer on Monday.

The page shows a price of $9.99, with a long swipe-to-subscribe toolbar, as well as a list of what the update includes. The new “Upgrades” tab appears under the “Software” tab, as seen below:

The page also lists the various service connectivity is used for, including navigation, live traffic visualization, satellite-view maps, video streaming, karaoke, music streaming and the internet browser.

Tesla drivers have largely been paying for connectivity subscriptions for the past few years, though the ability to subscribe from within a person’s car is brand new – so new, in fact, that some users have yet to gain access to the feature.

One user in the thread said they weren’t able to see or access this page in their Tesla Model 3 with 2021.40.x software.

While Model 3 and Model Y units now only feature a 30 day trial for Premium Connectivity upon purchase, the higher-priced Tesla Model S and X units still offer a full year of free Premium Connectivity.
