The small yet powerful and complete adapter to make OpenPilot work on your preAP Tesla Model S is here. It creates the interface between the Comma.ai OBD-C interface and your vehicle. It also offer expansion connectors to add a Pedal Interceptor, retrofit a Bosch radar or power your Tinkla Buddy
I created the Tinkla OBD-C Adapteri with two things in mind. First, to make it VERY easy for anybody to add OpenPilot capabilities to their preAP Tesla Model S. Secondly, to have enough capabilities to allow you to add other options on top of the basic functionality.
device (or Black Panda), an OBD2 port pinned to match the one in your
Tesla Model S, 3 JST ports in case you want to add radar or other CAN based accessories, an RJ45 CAN expansion port to connect to your Pedal Interceptor, and a USB A port to power your Tinkla Buddy.
Before finishing your order, please make sure your preAP Tesla Model S has the OBD2 pins 1 and 9 populated. Please visit our wiki page to see instructions how to check. If they are not, you will also need to purchase a Tinkla Chassis CAN Retrofit Harness from our store.

Just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all the great work that you have done on OP. I have been following the progress of the AP1/Comma2/OPversion 0.8 development. It’s truly amazing what you have done. Once again thank you!
Hi Bog. First i wanna thank you for all your hard work making op great. It works really nice. Wow. Secondly I wanted to tell you I ordered and installed your latest product, TB, and it is amazing. You really do create magic on the CAN bus.
In early 2018 I got involved with the OpenPilot project. The more I got involved, the deeper I wanted to integrate OpenPilot with my Tesla Model S for a better experience. Today, by just looking at the instrument cluster (IC) or the center instrument display (CID) you would not know if the car is equipped with the Tesla original AutoPilot (AP1) or with our version of OpenPilot for Tesla.
