Tesla has been on a roll as of recent, introducing the P85D as its new AWD version to the Model S. Now is no better time than ever to be a fan of what the Silicon Valley automaker has to offer. Also noteworthy Tesla news is the ability for greater personalization in the newest software update from Tesla.
Software version 6.o brings automatic upgrades, such as Traffic Based Navigation and Commute Advice. Traffic Based Navigation, TBN, is still in beta mode for the time being, but will calculate the designation arrival time for suggested routes based on real-time traffic data. Feedback is also based on what other Tesla Model S’ are experiencing, and the system will suggest routes accordingly.
Commute Advice will alert drivers of any traffic issues before they leave for their daily commute. The technology learns the driver’s daily commute, and coordinating with the Location-Based Air Suspension, the Tesla Model S will automatically remember where the driver raised or lowered the suspension and take on the ability itself.
The Calendar beta has also been introduced, and syncs with the driver’s smartphone calendar, and addresses to appointments will be inputed into the navigation system seamlessly. Tesla owners may now remote start their car via the Tesla mobile app as well.
Other notable features include the ability to “Nickname Your Tesla”, displaying the nickname on the titanic touchscreen display in the center stack. A Power Management System is now a choice as well, and can automatically put the vehicle in energy saving mode at night. Look forward to more innovative features to come from Tesla as future software updates bring even more tech to the Model S.
