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 »

Mobile App

Idle falling/low tire pressure warning

A Tesla owner should never be surprised when walking out to their car only to find a flat tire, because the car is capable of alerting them. Allow user to turn on reporting \[to the mobile app via push notification\] of tire pressure state when car is idle at user-selected intervals from 1 to 12 hours, on demand \[via user tapping a button in the mobile app "Controls" section\] with or without automatic reporting \[via... more »

Convenience

Improve Spotify

The in-car Spotify app is currently too limited in UI functionality and streams at very low bitrate. My proposal:

- Increase Streaming Bitrate for Spotify Premium Subscribers
The current streaming quality is noticeably low bitrate. I already pay a Spotify subscription so that I can stream high quality (320kbps) audio. If I have to pay for Tesla Premium Connectivity on top of this, then I should not have to take a bitrate... 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 »

Touchscreen

Display Both % and Miles Remaining Selected

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.

Touchscreen

Add 'waypoints' for making multiple stops on a single trip

When traveling longer distances or when your battery is lower it would be nice to enter all of the destinations you need to stop so the navigation can tell you if/where you need to charge during this trip. The function of this would act just like google maps, you could enter all your destination points in the order you need to stop at them, with the added function of routing you to chargers if needed, just like the current... more »

Charging

The electric vehicle with the built-in compact power generator

The compact power generator in the electric vehicle is installed next to the battery. As soon as the axis of the electric vehicle will turn, the compact power generator will turn and generate electricity. The alternating current generated by the compact power generator will flow into the on-board charger, the on-board charger converts the alternating current into direct current and charges the battery. Batteries are installed... more »

Safety

Passive Blindspot Detection

- When AutoPilot is not activated, and turn signal is activated make a chime or sound play to alert driver to someone existing in blind spot. Similar to the mirror light blind spot functions other cars have. Instead of just a last second avoidance feature or visual on the screen which is not very safe to be looking at whilst driving.
- Could make another kind of "clicking" sound to passively let the driver know someone... more »
