I noticed that the avatar screen provides quite a good rear view if you manually rotate the screen (see pic). Unfortunately the view is not fixed and returns after a few seconds to the regular forward view. For better situational awareness it would be great to allow the driver to hold the rear view in place without keeping your finger on the screen. Should be an easy option to implement and improve overall safety.
The new wireless charging points are a great convenience. But it makes it easier to accidentally leave your phone in the car as you leave. The car should detect that the phone used to open the car is still inside the car as the driver exits the vehicle and use the external speaker to remind them of this.
I own a 2019 Model 3 and installed the Tesla roof rack. I frequently put my bike on the rack. I would love the ability to have my car remind me that a bike is on top when I approach my garage so I don't accidentally drive into it. You would manually enable Bike-on-roof Mode. As you approached your home the dash would alert you to remember not to drive into the garage.
Tail lights should tell the drivers behind more than just braking, turning and the headlamps are on....
Add a new tail light section ( or incorporate with the existing tail light section ) that indicates:
Green - the vehicle is accelerating
Yellow - the vehicle is deaccelerating
Red - the vehicle is braking
Most of the status and warning text is too small to read for people who need to wear glasses for driving. An option for larger text onscreen, particularly the driving information in the top panel (aside from speed) and any of the warning and notifications that appear.

It would be useful to be able to give the car a clean while waiting. Maybe a long reach vacuum hose for the inside carpets etc. Good way to kill 35 mins. An over head shower for the exterior? Cloths could be purchased via a vending machine or bring your own. Could be great for Tesla to have the vast majority of their cars looking clean and tidy on the road.
There are people that like Coke vs Pepsi. Some wash their legs when they shower and some don't. Is the shoe pink or gray? Some controversies are never resolved.
But, can we all agree to display battery % remaining AND miles remaining at the same time? Then we would all be happy.
Tesla should enable Face ID and Touch ID for so no one can drive the car away if they are not the registered driver of that specific car. In the event of a theft the thief even if they break in they cannot drive the car away.
This gives users the ability to save on charging costs and open opportunities to only charge when home Solar panels are providing energy. Smart Charging in general is becoming more important in balancing the grid and the only way today to integrate a Tesla into this mix is by starting and stopping... more »
