Feature Request: automatic dimmer on touchscreen

Feature Request: automatic dimmer on touchscreen

Maybe it's just me, but sometimes I find the touchscreen a little distracting. It would be REALLY nice to have a feature that allows the brightness of the screen to be turned down automatically when not actively using it. This would be especially useful at night.

How would the car know when you want it to automatically dim it?

Oh I misread, I think you are saying you want a setting that after so much time of inactivity ie no touches, the screen dims... Sorry!

Yeah, like if I am not touching it, the screen dims after a minute or two.

It would be nice to have the screen auto dim based on the brightness of the environment (not just day and night mode).

@kawaiia I agree. My smartphone can do this, why can't the touchscreen in my Tesla?

Sounds like a necessary idea to me!
