Request for via’s and multiple stops on navigation

Tessla please add the ability to make a stop on a planed route. For instance with Google maps for instants you can plans route with multiple stops and “via” on the route but with Teslas navigation system you cannot. Reason this is important is in calculating daily battery use for the battery capacity needed for a particular journey it would be extremely helpful to be able to do the entire trip in one calculation on screen rather than breaking the trip down piecemeal. In this way we would be able to plan our trips for the day and know if we were going to violate the minimum 20% maximum 80% rule, or worse taking a journey where there are no superchargers only to find out after we’ve already begun the trip that we don’t have enough juice to get back home.

    It's a good idea/request.

    In the meanwhile, what if you didn't have to worry about the min and max rule so strictly? It seems you might be making life harder on yourself to worry about violating a recommendation that isn't even that strict.

    Waypoints have been a popular feature request for 4+ years now: https://teslatap.com/questions/waypoints-and-route-change/

    Yes, please!

    Agree entirely with your suggestion. In the mean time, you can use https://abetterrouteplanner.com/ both on your laptop at home and on the Tesla display browser to do multi-stop trips. For the easiest use in the car you do need to either log in with your Tesla credentials or type in a 50-digit token you can get from an app; this is apparently a browser limitation. Still, ABRP is a great site.

    Me too! Adding Waypoint options would be most helpful.

    I want that feature too. Hard to plan trips. I have to use a combination of tools like a real mapping program (Google maps or Apple Maps) plus an app that shows all different kind of chargers (more than Tesla navigation shows) and try to sort of extrapolate the amount of charge for each leg. I am a newbie to the Tesla world and this is one of the many ways I had inappropriate expectations of how sophisticated the Tesla software is. It is pretty cool in a lot of ways, but also keep running into, “I can’t believe I can’t do this! I MUST be missing something....

    I just tried planning a trip from FL to VT and it said that I couldn't do it since their were no superchargers along the way once I got into NJ. I know there is one in Paramus and also Albany and from there I would have enough range, but nothing shows north of NYC.

    @Tesla2018: What did you use to plan the trip? There are plenty of superchargers north of NYC.

    Plenty. I’ve done FL to VT, from CA.
  • It's like Android Auto has surpassed the Navigation Tesla uses. Adding waypoints onto your existing route should be a standard feature. I traded in a 2020 Rav4 for a MY and that and my Google maps handing off to the car are things I really miss. I'm in the middle of a 3000 mile road trip, and while the self driving obviously makes up for it, those features being missing makes it where I have continually re-do things that I didn't have to on the much cheaper vehicle. Still loving the Tesla. Great road trip vehicle.

    edit: One other feature I'd like (I think GMaps already has this) is to show the next 2 turns instead of just one. I've had many times on this trip I needed to make two merges or turns in succession and din't make the second one because they were too close together. The car obviously knows where it's going, but it tells me too late. Again, this car is a beast and incredible, but I do miss the better Google tool integration (Map navigation features I've mentioned, Smarter Reminders with Phone Numbers/Addresses, Calendar (addresses/names/phone numbers in particular))
