MoreTesla.com - Upvote and suggest features to go into the next software update

Tesla owners love their cars! We spend a lot of time with them, and all of us have ideas for what would make the experience even better #MaximumFun. The Tesla forums are obviously a great place for owners to connect, discuss issues and ideas. However, I don't think it's easy for Tesla to dig through tens of thousands of threads and hundreds of thousands of posts and get a good detailed sense of all the things owners care about.

To help make this easier on Tesla, and to help owners organize their ideas, I built a site that focuses on Tesla software feature requests and bug reports. It's specifically *not* another forum. Just ideas and votes. Please let me know what you think, and what would make it better. Feedback is always welcome.

https://MoreTesla.com/

Note, this is "fun" personal project created to help owners and help Tesla achieve its mission. It's not a commercial site (I maintain the site in evenings and weekends), so no ads or other annoying stuff. Site is intended to be helpful. That's is. So far I've been really pleased with the engagement and thoughtfulness of all the ideas.

The site was first mentioned on Zac and Jesse's fantastic "Now You Know" YouTube channel, episode 108 @ ~34mins in (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tCEtaPDVks&t=34m8s).

Sorted by popularity (i.e. most votes), here are the top 4 trending issues right now:
#1. Add Bird’s Eye View for parking assistance
#2. Display view from side backward facing camera when turn signal is engaged to change lanes.
#3. Window down alerts, app window control
#4. Add more voice controls (wipers and air conditioning in particular)

Please vote and add ideas that are missing. I've already learned a lot about what other owners care about. I hope you do to, and find it fun.

Thanks
Fred

Always useful to have lists of desired features as the forum is a poor way to handle them. You may not be aware, but I've been providing this service for 5+ years now, with over 500 desired features submitted by owners. Over 100 have now been implemented by Tesla. You can vote or add comments to desired features and search the database. We analyze submissions and give our editor's rating on general desirability, likelihood of Tesla implementing the feature and a rough expense idea (if any).

You can start here, and select "Desired Features": https://teslatap.com/features/

I don't track bugs, so freda's site may be great for that too.

@TeslaTap - +100.

It is bad form to promote your forum on another forum...poaching.

TeslaTap.com | 29. Oktober 2018

@Uncle - I see you point, but neither of these options are forums. Just a better way to handle one narrow need.

Does Tesla look at these?
I just added 3 TuneIn requests to improve podcast listening. Vital for those of us with long commutes...

I have a 2017 model S and recently installed the latest software update. Now, I do not have the cold weather package that previously existed, resulting in the inability to turn on steering wheel and outside mirrors heaters. what, if anything, can I do to reactivate these features?

@BG1: What Version are you running
2018.42.2 has cold weather package on my MX

Hi @TeslaTap, thanks for the link. I'm sorry I didn't run across your site in my research.

Now I'm curious how well the feedback aligns across the two sites :)

"I do not have the cold weather package that previously existed, resulting in the inability to turn on steering wheel and outside mirrors heaters. what, if anything, can I do to reactivate these features?"

How do you expect to activate hardware that your car does not have?

Tesla should have Send Feedback similar to how Google does it for Android. Car has connection, screen, and keyboard. That's all you need to submit feedback and issues directly to Tesla. Tesla can even collect logs like Android does. Not sure why it's still not there.

A feature on the app to disable the car even if your phone key is inside the car. When would this be useful you ask? When I give complete strangers tours/test drives of my Model 3. I trust people, but I suppose there is always a chance someone tries to take off on me when I don't want them to. I guess that's where the speed limit setting comes in handy.

@wisam.alrawi You can use the "Send bugreport ..." voice command in the car. If you ever talk to Tesla service about an issue you reported this way, include the date and timestamp of when you sent this, so they can look at the logs from your vehicle.

@edman_2222

Anyone with a modicum of commonsense would have the presence of mind not to let some complete stranger drive their car without their going along as a passenger...

Just saying.
