Open hatch to preset height only when at home location

On my Model S, I can set the height to which the back hatch will open. I have it set so that it can open in my garage without hitting the ceiling. It would be nice if the car could use the GPS and only limit the height when I am home. That way it would open all the way when I am not in the garage.

Navigation

Today I visited a golf course in NH, which wasn't found on my map, even though I provided the street address. I had to use my iPhone once I got to the town.

You know what you're doing, this is your driveway - you're the Mario Andretti of your own driveway. Those alerts are like Princess Leia giving Han a hard time b/c he's attacking a star destroyer. You got this.

Automatic disabling of full beam lights in town

The Model 3 full beam lights do actually automatically disable if a car is coming in front, this works very well so far. However, when entering a town with street lights, the full beam mode is not disabled even if there is a law to disable it in town.
The idea is to have a setting to tell the car to disable the full beam lights as well automatically when driving within a town with street lights. The logic might be in... more »
