Tesla May Remove Toronto Geofence in FSD Beta 10.6.3, Says Elon Musk

Tesla CEO @Elon Musk says the automaker may remove geofencing in Downtown Toronto with an upcoming update for Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta 10.69.3.

While Tesla’s FSD software works in much of Toronto, a small downtown area of Toronto is currently blocked off by the software which asks the driver to regain control of the vehicle when driving through.

Musk’s statement came in response to a user Chansoo Byeon on Twitter asking him to unlock the Downtown Toronto FSD beta geofencing, that goes from Bloor-Danforth southwards.

“Maybe with .3,” said Musk in the tweet.

Back in March of this year, Musk said “Toronto streetcars are not handled well by FSD,” hence the restrictions.

While it isn’t yet clear when Tesla plans to unveil FSD beta 10.69.3, the software’s version has been covered in several test drives recently, just a few weeks after version rolled out to about 160,000 drivers across the U.S. and Canada.

In September, a New York Times journalist rode along with one beta tester using FSD beta 10.69.2 for an upcoming story. By the end of the ride, the journalist said he had become more comfortable with the system and trusted that it wasn’t going to crash — even when it was jerky or a little scary.

Musk also said last month that FSD beta version 10.69.3 would come after AI Day, though the event has come and gone and it isn’t yet clear when the new version will begin rolling out.
