After a little over three months and 6,000 miles driving a Tesla Model 3, there are a few changes that I wish could be made to it.
Tesla is known for pushing over-the-air updates to improve their vehicles, and I don’t think these are out of the realm of possibility as software changes.
360 Degree Camera View
I believe the 360 degree view could be made from a composite of the cameras that are already on the Model 3.
Access to the Side Cameras
There is already a button to show you the rear camera. However, being able to view the side cameras would be nice to have for checking parking lines if a 360 degree composite view couldn’t be added.
Lead Vehicle Start Alert
My wife’s Subaru Forester has a feature called Lead Vehicle Start Alert. It makes a sound when the vehicle in front of starts moving again. This is a great feature for when you’re in line in a drive-thru.
Apple Music Support
After adding Spotify in Software v10, Apple Music support seems like it would be possible. I’d also be happy with just going full CarPlay, but that’s likely to never happen.
Customizable Bottom Bar
I access the glove box way more than the defroster. I’d like to customize the bottom bar for quicker access to features I use the most.
Postpone Bluetooth Pairing
The Model 3 starts pairing via bluetooth when any door is opened, even the trunk. If you’re talking to someone on your phone and open the trunk, the call switches to the car audio.
I’d like the pairing to be postpone until the driver seat senses someone sit down.
Emoji Support in the Calendar
I use emojis in calendars for quickly denoting family events as ?⚕️, ?♀️, ?, ✈️, etc. These show up as empty squares in the Model 3 calendar.
