Modes

Set cruise power instead of speed

Add an option to set consistent power level instead of consistent speed for cruise (won't waste energy going up a hill and not getting nearly all of it back going down, will instead slow down on the way up — should include ability to set minimum speed for uphill and maximum speed for downhill).

Autopilot

Add the ability to anticipate speed limit changes

When you're driving on Autopilot and the speed limit changes, the car will either:

- charge into a lower speed zone at high speed before recognizing the new limit and slowing down (unsafe and liable to get you a ticket), or

- keep going slowly into a higher speed zone before recognizing the new limit and speeding up (frustrating for other drivers).

Where speed limit changes are done by geolocation, it should possible... more »

Cruise Control at Current Speed

When setting the cruise control, it always locks at "current speed or map indicated, whichever is faster".

There are many places in my area, where it either has inaccurate map date, or it's simple not safe to drive at the indicated speeds.

When activating the cruise control at lower speeds, this means the car starts accelerating, until I can reduce speed on the scroll wheel - every single time.

It would be nice to... more »

Option to disable TACC use "dumb" cruise control instead. trending idea

I would like to have the option to disable TACC and use "dumb" cruise control instead.

I have experienced horrible ghost breakings. Suddenly middle of an empty road the car slammed brakes for 1 second and continued forwards. There was absolutely no reason for this breaking. If a car would have followed me it would have caused a rear-end collision.

Tesla give us the option to go with "dumb" cruise control, please.

Aut. disengagement of cruise control when taking over wheel

Could you please create a setting that allows automatically disengagement of the cruise control after taking over the wheel when autosteer is enabled. I use autopilot a lot...even off the freeways and it works remarkably well. However, during my city driving, I obviously have to take over the wheel when making a turn. Usually, it's fine because the car in front of me will be making the same turn. However, sometimes when... more »

More Adaptive Speed Limits on City Streets Selected

In Houston (and many other cities), traffic regularly flows at 5 - 10 miles above the posted speed limit. Currently this is not an issue when using AutoPilot on the highway because it allows up to 90 MPH. However on City streets AutoPilot can only be instructed to go 5 MPH over. This is OK for some locations but can be unsafe in others. We need more control over AutoPilot relative speed limits on City streets.

Speed limit indicator on screen to have a bigger "tap" spot

When speed limit changes and you want to reset the cruise to the new limit, the spot for tapping the speed limit icon is too small and difficult to quickly reach too. I find I have to repeatedly tap in the area until it recognises my efforts and frequently have my eyes off the road and focused on the screen instead.

Touchscreen

Feedback for incorrect speed limits

It would be nice if I could click on the "posted speed limit" display on my Model 3, when the ACTUAL posted speed is not what the car thinks. You could pass this thru to whatever service you get speed limits from and they could use voting-metrics to verify it needs review.

Single tap to reset Cruise control to current speed limit

When cruise control is first engaged, the car sets the speed to the current speed limit or to the current speed whichever is greater. I would like it to reset it to the current conditions if the stalk is tapped again (I dont mean double tap).

eg speed limit 80kph single tap sets the cruise to 80, speed limit changes to 100kph another single tap resets cruise to 100kph.

Autopilot

Do not use current speed when enabling AP when driving on ACC

When ACC is engaged on a specific speed (faster than the speed limit), but the car is driving slower for example because of a slower car in front of you and I engage AP, AP is engaged but the speed limit is changed to the current speed. This is really annoying because I then have to update the desired speed. I can imagine that using the current speed is taken when AP is engaged when driving manually, but if ACC is already... more »
