No rolling the opposite direction of the gear.

No rolling the opposite direction of the gear. A car in drive can't roll backwards and a car in reverse can't roll forwards.
Whether this is accomplished with a half hold/creep mode or just a "The car always automatically 'Holds' at zero" (no special song and dance with the brake pedal) I'm fine with.
Auto hold at zero is probably the most straight forward. Basically, once the car is going zero only the accelerator can... more »

Twitter App

The majority of Tesla marketing is on Twitter and most of the Tesla community is on Twitter as well. Might as well just add a Twitter app right in the car. Then you could check your Twitter feed while you're charging, etc.

 

Also if you're a stockholder you could tweet information to pump up the stock price from the comfort of your own Tesla.

seat sensor

We have created a seat sensor for vehicles. This is a smart sensor that will be able to tell how big the person is in the vehicle. The sensor will also be able to tell the position the person is in while driving the vehicle and if a crash were to occur. This sensor will be able to tell if the person in the vehicle is an adult, child, car seat, box, or even an animal. This will let the vehicle know to deploy an airbag... more »

Delay locking of charge port

By the time I have connected my charging cable to the wall connector, the car has locked and I can not open the charge port with a push. Then I have to unlock the car in order to open the charge port.
I appreciate that the car gets locked quickly, but I suggest to leave the charge port open for a minute more so the cable can be conveniently connected to the car.
Alternatively not lock the car at all when I walk around... more »

Crowdsourced speed limit errors

From Larry Lessing (at lessig)

Hey at Tesla at elonmusk — why no way to crowdsource speed limit errors? E.g., when the reported limit is wrong, a driver presses the speed limit icon for 2 seconds; a question mark gets added to the icon, and Tesla gets notified of the error. When many report the same, you fix it.

Would it be possible to integrate adaptive hand controls?

Would it be possible to integrate adaptive hand controls into autopilot/self drive mode to assist people with disabilities? (People who cannot use pedal or have limited or no foot control.) Or integrate other adaptive technologies to assist. I am interested in  Model Y. My family owns other performance model Teslas.

Add Ability To Display Pictures On Touchscreen

I would like to be able to display pictures on the touchscreen when I'm not actually navigating. It could be from a set of preloaded pictures, or pictures I loaded myself. A slideshow option would be great too. I use the car mostly around town and I know where I am and where I'm going. It would be nice to look at something besides an ugly map.

I have to point out our 2020 CRV Hybrid has this ability. Surely Tesla could... more »

Leave seat heating activated when changing profiles (Easy Entry). Unverified Translation

If you activate the seat heating via the app or immediately after getting in (in the Easy Entry profile), the seat heating is deactivated when you start driving by changing the profile to a "Driver Profile". In my opinion, the seat heating should be maintained with every profile change and should only be deactivated after the journey.

HeatedSeat button (display) accidentally pushed when driving

WHILE DRIVING and reaching for the driver's side AC/Heat temperature left side temperature control ('<<'), many times also push the (driver's side) heated seat button by accident.  

 

Recommend that both driver's side / passenger side heated seat buttons be moved farther away from the temperature up/down cursor icons ... (perhaps even consider to move to the far left / far right).
