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 »

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 »

External speaker fart mode

Next to the horn button in the app should be a button that would allow user to make their car fart loudly remotely, for cars equipped with the active pedestrian warning system. It should also be possible to use the existing Fart Mode to play continuous loud farting from the external speaker while driving (at speeds above the pedestrian noise maximum, or above and below if they play concurrently) , which would include... more »

Provide app and/or API access to control the charge current

Third parties are coming to market to allow users control of charging at the moment of the best energy rate during the day.

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 »

Powerwall reserve power set per hour

We have a unreliable power grid. For this reason I keep the reserved power at 25%. At about 4AM my system is at 25% and start to use the grid power. By 8 am the solar takes over again. I would like to have a option to set the reserve based on the time of day. Eg from 16:00 to 4:00 reserve must be 25% and from 4:00 to 15:00 2%. This will allow me to avoid using the national grid in the morning.

Timer for remote warming

During cold weather I turn the heating on prior to getting in the vehicle, several times now I've either been delayed or have forgotten to turn off the heating. Could a timer be added, so that if you forget the heating, or cooling turn off automatically? Usually you only require 5 or ten minutes in the uk to warm or clear ice from the car so increments of 5, 10, 15 mins would suffice.

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 push... more »

TESLA BATTERY APP

The current Tesla Battery App allows you to set the peak, off peak, and super off peak times by choosing one peak time and one super off peak time. This works fine, except that in some cases we have MORE than one super off peak time and so this cannot be programmed in.

I propose that we include the option to include a second PEAK and second super OFF PEAK time so that this can be properly allocated for.
