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 »
This idea would be to add USB-C (with Power Delivery) ports to the Tesla. Maybe swap out one of the USB-A ports with a USB-C port.
A full on teenager mode:
-keyfob tied to a specific profile
-profile is speed and acceleration limited
-radio muted when seatbelt off
Problem: the child-protection lock for the falcon wing doors only prevents a child from opening the FWDs. It does not turn off the switch for purposes of closing the doors. Anyone with kids knows that this button is enticing! And they can easily touch the button with their hands or feet (by accident or on purpose).
Solution: Disable this FWD button on the pillar when the child protection lock is enabled.
-Periodically fade-in / fade-out projected range, calculated using the average of the 5- and 15-mile avg power consumptions
-Determine if need to show range every 3 minutes, based on whether a significant change in consumption has occurred (or if it's been >10 minutes since last shown)
-If projected range needs to be shown... more »
Prevent Hitting Cyclists Selected
When in park, all the rear cameras would look for cyclists (or cars) coming up from behind and show some kind of alert so you don't door a cyclist. When you're parked next to a bike lane, show a warning when in park to look out for cyclists.
I thought it might be a good idea to have an option (on/off switch) that, when introduced, defaults to ON, where opening the FWD while in park means the car cannot be taken out of "park" until the door is closed. Probably only Park and Neutral, and both offer more significant... more »
It's soemtimes easy to forget to plug-in your EV at the end of the day. It would be great if the mobile app could notify you if your Tesla is still unplugged after a certain pre-defined time.
When the car is moving in reverse, play an audible chime outside of the car to warn people.
Netflix while parked or charging Implemented
It would be great to support Netflix on the touchscreen while the car is parked or charging. This would make supercharging much more enjoyable.
In addition to Bluetooth, it would be helpful to be able to stream audio and video (only when parked) to the touchscreen.
Request Firmware OTA Download Implemented
Idea: Create a feature to allow an owner to request a download of the latest firmware for their... more »
Basic sentry mode for HW1 Selected
For cars with HW1, sentry mode isn't supported. However, this idea would be to have a "fake" sentry mode whereby when it's enabled, the screen would display the Hal9000 eye, just to scare would-be thieves.
The idea would be to receive the amber alert signal, and parse it for license plate info and vehicle descriptions. Then use the front facing camera to search for that license plate or vehicle in the surrounding area.
Update: The alert would pop up, and the driver would opt-in to the scanning process.
