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.
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.
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.
I find it inconvenient and unintuitive to use the touch screen for opening the glovebox on the Model 3.
I'd prefer tap-to-open
Sophisticated Charge Timing Implemented
A setting to allow you to configure when you want the car to finish charging at a selected level (ex. so the battery temp is optimal in the morning before driving to work). Could also be used in cold climates to ensure battery is warm for a longer period of time.
If you're away from your house, and you put something in the trunk and then drive home, the car reminds you that something might be in the trunk when you get home.
Make it so autopark works really at Superchargers. Just get close to the supercharger, and the car spots an open charger and just takes over and parks in the open spot.
It would be nice if there was a way to communicate with other drivers in a less one-dimensional way by having a "friendly" horn sound option. A really good example is this video:
In the service menu, add a button to track that the tires have been rotated. Then have a reminder every X number of miles/km.
In addition to the clock widget on the dashboard screen, how about a simple weather widget? Also, additional weather information in the route planning and on the map would be helpful. For example, the route planner could display what temperature it will be at the destination location (based on the time of arrival of course).
