Since Tesla lacks the typical blind spot lights on the side mirrors, if I’m about to change lanes or merge I like to tap the camera icon to reveal the backup camera since Tesla recently allows you to swipe up to reveal both blind spot cameras. If you want to maximize the security on your Tesla, you can do 2 things: Enable multi factor authentication with a free 2 factor authentication app. In your Tesla app choose Start under Controls section and it will unlock your Tesla and allow anyone to drive it within a 2 minute countdown. Enable honk to save dash cam clips so you can quickly honk and it will save the footage to your DashCam drive. Voice commands have improved so if you want do something, first try to see if there’s a voice command for it by pressing the right scroll wheel button and saying the command. If you like to use Google Maps to look up a destination on your phone before getting into your Tesla, you can share the destination to your Tesla by pressing the “Share” button on your phone, then select the Tesla App and it'll send the destination to your Tesla navigation system. Hold down on the fan icon for a few seconds to turn off the climate control which is much easier than tapping. Hold down on the fan icon when you’re done defrosting or defogging to turn off everything to save you from tapping multiple times and to help you maximize your range efficiency if you don't need the climate control to stay on. Autopilot detects the speed limit zone you’re in, and if you enable Autopilot it will set your speed to the speed limit, but you can go into your settings and set it to relative +5 which means Autopilot will automatically set the speed to 5 mph over the speed limit. When you’re on cruise control or Autopilot and you accelerate up to a certain speed do a quick scroll up on the right scroll wheel and instead of increasing by 5 mph it will actually set your cruise speed to whatever speed you’re at when you do the quick scroll. If Autopilot doesn’t detect a hand on the wheel it will eventually alert you to nudge the wheel to make sure you’re still paying attention, but instead of nudging the wheel you can also toggle or press either of the scroll wheel buttons to quickly dismiss the Autopilot alert. To avoid being alerted by Autopilot about grabbing the wheel, try to set your steering wheel and seat position in a way that you can comfortably rest each of your elbows on either side and rest your hand on the bottom left or right part of the steering wheel to satisfy Autopilot while also being comfortable.

  • Rafael Br
    Rafael Br25 dagar sedan

    it seems that most of the presented topics - are dealing with the tablet operations and definitions and configurations - the direction is that Tesla is no longer a car in the traditional way - with all the controls and the traditional displays- the manual operation of doors windows - tesla is a tablet like I-Pad with car by the way - driving and enjoying the car is equal to good I pad features or applications - the drive experience becomes less relevant and the Tesla Pad features like i phone are relevant- So American so shallow so sad, Tesla embraced the I phone concept - and a good car is not a good smarth phone

    I've owned my model Y for almost 2 months now, and it still blows me away. But, it does have some foibles. My Google maps doesn't provide the Tesla app with an address in a way that Tesla can consume. So I have to hand-edit the address: I have to manually change "St." into "Street" and "Ave." into "avenue". I have to delete the town, state, and zip from the street field and manually put town and state into the appropriate fields. It is much easier to type in the location directly. Elon, fix this please! Also, the Azure web site doesn't work well enough to rely on. I find it to be very buggy and unresponsive: can't reliably get turn by turn, don't see traffic updates, etc. I suspect this is buggy Model Y software that will eventually be fixed. But for now, I can't recommend either of these two features on the model Y.

    I think it's stupid when people say they want to park their car in a "really tight spot". Think about how that might effect you when the other party gets back and see your car squeezed in tightly to their car. I would be mad and many others might be and they might take out their frustration on you some cases. I would not squeeze your car in. Walk farther.

    My 2021 model 3 turn signal has two clicks up and two clicks down so if you just want to change lanes, you just signal one click up. It will stop once you change lanes. If you are actually going to turn and you want it to keep signaling, you push it all the way up.

    You talk about the auto-park feature and how you initiate it from inside. What about when you want to pull out of a tight spot? Do you need to crawl through the window? I assume you just use the app, but it would have been helpful to mention that.
