Detect Driver in Seat Before Switching to Bluetooth Implemented

When a Tesla is unlocked and you're in the middle of a call, it's pretty eager to switch the audio from the phone over to the car. This can be frustrating when you're in the middle of a call and you are not even inside the car yet. Or when you're near the car and someone else gets in the car a similar thing happens.

Suggestion: use the seat occupancy sensor to check if the driver is in their seat. Once the seat is occupied,... more »

Improve Spotify

The in-car Spotify app is currently too limited in UI functionality and streams at very low bitrate. My proposal:

Smart Audio: Spoken Word Support

When I am listening to an audiobook or a podcast I'm 100% listening. I want to distractions. If I do miss something, I need super fine audio scrubbing tools to get back exactly to the right spot so I can resume listening.

Currently when listening to spoken word audio via BT, there are no scrubbing controls. I have to go to my phone to find where I left off.

It would great if the car knew the audio playing was spoken... more »
