Mobile App

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.

Use Mobile Phone Keyboard as Input

Idea: similar to AppleTV, allow the mobile app to pop-up an input box whenever the touch screen is seeking input. Then you could easily type from your phone keyboard.
