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 »

Option to set 3 to 6? flashes per indicator-tap

In some cases, just three flashes on an indicator is a little short / stops too soon. It would be nice if we can choose a few more options than either manually controlled or three (with no other options. (while limiting the minimum to three).

 

For example, I'd think that with my own driving, I'd either choose four or five for myself.

 

(The upper limit doesn't have to be six, could be ten!)

Autopilot

Automatic turn signals when navigating without an autopilot Unverified Translation

If you have not activated the autopilot but the navigation is active (e.g. to work, or to your home, which is automatically activated), it would be very pleasant if at least the indicators were activated automatically. The vehicle knows where you want to go and where you are most likely to go for a long time and so the vehicle could carry out the annoying turn signal operation even if the autopilot is not activated (e.g.... more »

Climate control option for home thermostat-like settings

I fiddle with climate settings WAY too much! Vehicle climate control would benefit from being able to pick a high temperature threshold where AC would engage and a low temperature threshold where the heater would engage. Since everyone's tolerance and energy consumption needs are different, it would let them pick their personal thresholds. For example, I would set my high temperature to 74 F and my low temperature setting... more »

Homelink direction specific settings

The gate for my community works with HomeLink to open automatically when I come into the community. Yay!
Unfortunately, when I'm leaving, the exit gate opens automatically for all vehicles leaving; so when my homelink triggers based on GPS coordinates, it opens the *entry* gate, allowing unauthorized vehicles into the community.

HomeLink should store the direction of travel as well as the GPS coordinates, and allow... more »

Short-cut or automatic mode for A/C circulation toggle

Driving through long tunnels, heavy traffic or country sites can bring heavy air pollution. Switching A/C circulation mode on needs a swipe and a push to the button. Not convenient in heavy traffic without Autopilot. Car should offer short-cut to toggle. E.g. Double-click volume scrolling wheel, voice commands, dedicated button on main screen, automatic switch with air sensor(if any) or map data (tunnels) , but please... more »

Automatically Toggle Sentry Mode During Software Update

Minor convenience suggestions:

If sentry mode is on when attempting to update the software, automatically turn it off. Currently, it cancels the update for you to manually toggle off sentry mode and re-attempt the update. Minor time/clicks saving.

Turn sentry mode back on after the update is completed if it was on before the update. This can lead to periods of time with Sentry mode disabled if you forget to turn it... more »

Mobile Battery

Is there or can the Tesla team create a mobile battery for the Tesla, like gas vehicles have gas cans for times they get in a rough situation to get mobile fuel, it would be amazing to have a mobile rolling suitcase type battery pack (that may even plug into a 110 power source) that could be easily removed from the vehicle for convenience as well as safety? Even if it can only add 20+ miles to the vehicle. I don't currently... more »

Convenience

Open the dashboard box directly from the home screen Unverified Translation

To be able to open the glove box directly, without opening a mnu first.

For example:

- In parking position, open the glove box from the car display, just like the boot lid / front cover.

- While driving via button bar at the top.
