I sent this to customer service as well, but will post here as I know Tesla reads the forums too.
I wish Smart Summon would allow you to alter the "blue line" path. Not only would it be more practical, would also allow Tesla's system to learn which way the car SHOULD GO.
I'm shocked at the path it chooses most of the time. Most of the time, making zero sense. Like Google Maps where you can alter the path you take when requesting directions, would be amazing if Tesla allowed the same thing.
Aside from the above, would also allow us to:
Prevent it from going the wrong way on one way aisles.
Prevent it from crossing through parking spaces instead of sticking within the aisle
Allow for the shortest distance to its destination
Allow us to choose the safest route for a driver-less car.
To Tesla's benefit, the software could learn MUCH faster as to which way should be chosen. No clue how it comes up with its path choice right now?
I think this would also assist greatly in not being a nuisance to other drivers, but getting in the way and stopping unexpectedly in the middle of the aisle, blocking traffic flow.
Clearly the system has not yet been programmed to handle these on their own. What better way for it to learn than for us to be able to point it in the right direction? As of right now, other than maybe in the rain or for a handicapped driver, it has little true practical use. It really shouldn't be used in a busy parking lot. With this ability to choose its path, it might actually have a lot more practicality.
If you agree, support it and Tesla will at least recognize the post and possibly make changes. Would be a simple, tap and drag the blue line to the correct place.
