Easy Entry turns off when passenger detected behind driver

Have an option to turn off Easy Entry when the seat sensor detects a passenger behind the driver.

Problem: A driver profile has the Easy Entry enabled and moves the seat all the way back when the car is put into park. But if there is a passenger behind the driver they will instantly be struck with horror as they see the seat slowly moving toward them like the crushing walls of so many action films. Paralyzed with... more »

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. 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 »

Mobile App

Assign Mobile Phone to Profile and Key Selected

Sometimes when there are two mobile phones in the car, the car will connect to the passenger's phone instead of the driver's phone. It would make more sense if the car knew which mobile phone was connected to which driver profile and then automatically switch to the active profile when you get in the car.

Edit: Just to clarify some confusion here, this idea is referring to the Bluetooth connection of the phone (not the... more »

Home Mode

A suite of settings that are triggered when your vehicle is at home. Some common settings for this would be:

-Turn off Sentry Mode (usually not needed at home).

-Pause climate control

-Homelink control (open/close garage door)

-Always unlock charge port regardless if car is locked/unlocked (open charge port without key)

Profile-based Odometer Tracking

It would be fun and useful if the car would record the total miles driven by each profile.


This would:

- Settle the score on who drives it the most.

-- And who drives it the most conservatively or aggressively.

- Allow for personal vs business mileage tracking. Just add another profile for activation when driving for work vs pleasure.

Mobile App

Choose Driver Profile from Mobile App

Add an option to choose a driver profile from within the app. Sometimes when drivers are significantly different in height, it can be hard to get in and choose a driver profile from the touchscreen. It would be so much easier to just choose this from the mobile app.

Driver preference adjustments

Tesla autonomous driving software


Have range adjustments + or - by driver

In several areas

Could start off with fairly low amount of adjustment and see what the feedback is.

Lane hugging so you can adjust to your preference by a foot or two right or left

Lane change cutting off drivers

Again distance adjustment

Distance to vehicles in front

Acceleration aggression when getting on the freeway

Degree... more »
