Wish List for Next Update

edited November -1 in General
Automatic volume control for the radio - Road noise increases with the rate of speed and makes it necessary to increase the volume of the radio and vise-versa when decelerating. My old Chevy Malibu had a feature that would automatically increase/decrease the radio volume with the speed of the car. That's old technology, so why isn't it included as standard on Teslas. It would save me from having to take my eyes off of the road to adjust the radio each time I accelerate/decelerate my Model 3. Seems like a no-brainer and low lying fruit, so can we get this feature in the next update?

A suggestion box is needed. Not sure that this Forum leads anywhere, but the people at Tesla Service said this may be the best place to submit suggestions????

    Adjust the volume with the left thumb wheel. No need to take your eyes off the road

    1) I think @tsecrest's suggestion that software update is better solution than using scroll wheel. I too had a Chevy Volt that auto-adjusted volume.
    2) give us a pedestrian/bike horn that we can use to alert folks that we are about to come close. Again, my Volt had that, it gave a reduced volume audible sound from the existing horn system. I used it alot in the streets of Seattle.
  • 1) Open and close windows thru the app
    2) Adjust charge current thru the app

    better solution than using the wheel!!!? Afraid of a muscle sprang in your thumb........

    The problem with this feature is that if you want to have a conversation in the car, you end up turning the volume down anyways and then turn it back up.

    Rare to see suggestions that haven't been arround before:

    @tsecrest - it's been a high rated desired feature (I submitted it back in 2012)
    https://teslatap.com/questions/automatic-sound-leveler/

    @mbirnie - popular desired feature since 2013:
    https://teslatap.com/questions/friendly-muted-horn-to-warn-pedestrians/

    @g.chrisk - Windows - unlikely to happen as it's a safety concern. We used to have it in the fob, but removed I think in 2013. Here's the desired feature to vote on: https://teslatap.com/questions/windows-status-and-closing-from-app/

    and .. Charge limit desired feature: https://teslatap.com/questions/set-charge-rate-from-app/
  • When I was going to check for the updates suddenly the browser ran into some problem and it has now crashed. I have checked https://errorcode0x.com/chrome-crashing-windows-10-solved/ for help and really got to know more out of it.

    Why does Tesla not have Apple Car Play? When deciding on or selecting a Playlist or song, I have to pull to the side of the rode (if possible) to safely select the item from my phone. If one does not pull over, this is definitely distracted driving (very unsafe). Sometimes I can use "Hey Siri" to pull up the song or playlist, but sometimes I have forgotten their names. I know there is Slacker, etc., but I prefer my songs and playlists that I am paying Apple for every month. When the availability of other premium electric autos (i.e. Audi, BMW, Mercedes, etc.) becomes competition for Tesla, and the others are offering Apple CarPlay and Google Play, Tesla may lose customers to them. I know this because when I was looking to replace my Saab convertible, with another convertible those that did not offer Apple CarPlay were not even considered. In a year or so I will be in the market again to replace my wife's car with an electric vehicle. I want it to be a Model S. However, if the others are offering CarPlay and their electric autos are close to being as nice as my Model 3, they will have my business, not Tesla. I can hear some saying why consider such a trivial item as one of the factors in selecting a car? But hey everybody is different. What is trivial to you may not be to others and I would hate to see Tesla miss out on sales for something so easily addressable. And, if not easily addressable, why?

    @manosoul177 "Why does Tesla not have Apple Car Play?"
    Maybe because Tesla has ambitions to have an app store of their own in the near future?
  • edited January 2019
    @manosoul - Some owners hate carplay, others want it. Lots prior threads on this topic and it's not at all clear it is easy to add as they are not using some generic OEM head-end as quite a few automakers use. Here's the entire rundown: https://teslatap.com/articles/carplay-on-tesla/

    Wish Tesla will make it possible to review the dashcam footage recorded in the USB stick on the display screen. Also record all cameras including the rear camera like it does in Sentry mode,

    There needs to be more and better voice command capabilities. At some point the screen will be old technology and people will be using only voice commands to operate the car. Be the first Elon.

    I would like to see a feature to lower the volume if ANY scroll wheel is suddenly turned when the car is in park. A lot of times, I park first, then realize the volume is too loud.. then the steering wheel is upside down or sideways and I have to think about it. I would like to just spin and wheel any direction and the volume mutes or decreases enough that open a door dosen't wake the neighborhood.
  • In the new update, I would like to get more possibilities for entertainment, for example to play blackjack for real money as it described in the article https://bovegas.com/blog/promo-guide/blackjack-guide-the-ins-and-outs-of-this-card-game/ and maybe some more voice commands to be prepared to any situation.

    Need for passenger assist handles/grab handles.

    Now that Tesla is moving closer to self-driving / ride-sharing services... they need to address a serious design omission... lack of passenger assist handles/ grab handles.

    I had a stroke on Christmas Eve and cannot drive for at least 6 months. Meanwhile, I've been forced to use Uber ridesharing to get around. EVERY one of those ridesharing cars I've seen, has passenger assist handles and they are essential for seniors and handicapped. Tesla needs to add those to all future production and to offer them as a dealer installed upgrade to those of who are already owners. I'd be happy to pay for that modification

    Ability to set a/c or heat to predetermined temperature a t specfic times each day.

    I forget to use the app to turn the ac on before leaving in the morning or coming home at night since the phone is the last thing I take when I leave home or work. Since I have the same schedule on specific days and weekends, it would be nice to automatically come on. Cabin overheat only makes the interior temperature go down to 100 so its still hot inside the car most of the time.

    @Tesla2018 more time with your car will help.

    My wish list prioritized:
    1. Better voice interface. At least find any car control by voice.
    2. Voice searching of manual.
    3. Reduce wind noise. I added epdm seal but still could be better.
    4. Something to put on my dash in front of me - custom displays, flexi screen. I'm think lots of bobble heads for now.
    5. Cooler steering wheel (sorry, my GTI had a much cooler wheel).

    Just one thing for now:

    Make it so that charging starts whenever power comes on even after the charge cable has been plugged in and the car is "asleep". We use an off-grid solar setup for charging that powers on whenever there is enough power available and it's annoying that the car won't just use power when it's available. This would also be useful for using "night rate" electricity when it cuts in at night and would mean not having to play guessing games with the charging timer. Our other EV (Nissan Leaf) does this by default, so it seems odd that the Model 3 doesn't (M3 is a much nicer car :-) ).

    I am a businessman whose short on time and I lose a lot of time while my driver drives around to my office. I would like the new upgrade to consist of a backseat LED screen through which you can access internet along the way. I want to stay connected with my business anywhere in the world. I have online stores like https://astroworldmerch.net/ and lots of others, and it is very critical if I lose my clients because of no connection medium. So this will serve as a great tool for me to stay updated with my stores and not lose any clients. This should be a potential upgrade in all models!

    My previous 2006 Prius had the innate ability to automatically lower the media volume whenever the navigation app audio was active, thus bringing the navigation audio to the fore. This simple, ancient technology, so obviously missing in my "luxury" Tesla, is an important safety feature. If I miss the navigation audio, I will need to look at the screen to try to figure out what was just said, distracting me from the task at hand (driving the car!) Anyone else have this issue?

    Comprehensive online dashboard with past charge & travel info, car settings etc. Basically a streamlined in-house TeslaFi system. Love the data availability and would much rather get it from the manufacturer than a 3rd party.

    Display the side repeater cameras on the display when parking =) Why not ?

    How about just the ability to have text messages show up (and be read to you) like other cars do? I'd swear I saw that this was supposed to be there in v10 - but it isn't there.

    Stargazer- no. No problem with hearing navigation.

    The volume is adjustable, both on the Nav screen and when the Nav is speaking to you. I enabled Joe mode and it is still crystal clear.

    Ability to set different heat vs A/C temperatures. The car would stay between the 2 temps. Auto-mode would only use the fan on comfortable days. I think this could save energy. My home thermostat does this.
