Safety

Bluetooth for disabled owners

I would like to suggest a Bluetooth connectivity ability to those with hearing disabilities & Hearing aids. Bluetooth would be able to speak to the driver with functions such as navigation, emergency vehicles approaching (which lane). For those who are deaf, Tesla can have visual/vibrations for autopilot, emergency notifications.

Disable FWD Pillar Button When Child Protection Lock is Enabled

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.

Modes

Garage Mode Selected

Have the car auto automatically select "Garage Mode" when the car detects that you are in the garage. Just like Home link knows you're home. This mode leaves the car unlocked so that you can come back whenever to get something inside, load golf bags, even charge without having to get a key to get into your own car in your garage.

Start Climate When I Get Near My Car

Imagine its hot AF 🔥 out and you're coming back from the waterpark at the end of the day with your kids. Everyone is exhausted and pissed - its 110F outside.

When your Tesla mobile app notices that you are getting close to the car (say in the parking lot), the climate system is turned on and starts to cool down the crazy hot car to its last known temperature setting. Now you have a nice cool car waiting for you... more »

Convenience

Use Mobile Phone Keyboard as Input

Background: sometimes you want to type in a password (or paste from a password manager) on the web browser. It's a pain to type a long complicated password on the touchscreen

 

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.

Voice Command to toggle child lock

Voice command to set or unset child lock by toggling it will help when there are passengers in the back seat, who cannot get out until, either the lock is disabled in the touchscreen or someone opens the door from outside. My SO typically rides in the back seat with the kid, and while we have the child lock enabled to prevent the kid from opening the door, unsetting it to let my wife out means I have to remember to set... more »

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 »
