Tesla's new release notes show that the company just made a new firmware update 2018.4.1 making further improvements and and providing more comfort for Model S, Model X and Model 3 owners.
1. Tire Pressure Unit
First Tesla added the ability to choose the tire pressure unit. You can now display your Model S tire pressure in BAR or PSI units. To choose the tire pressure unit, tap CONTROLS > Settings > Units & Format and set TIRE PRESSURE to BAR or PSI, reads Tesla's instruction.
2. Heated Steering Wheel
Now, when you start driving, the steering wheel will automatically warm up if you had it set to Heated Wheel during your most recent drive. It will thus, remember the setting from your previous drive.
"I like the heated steering wheel memory, but I really wish we could just have an icon next to the seat warmer icon to easily toggle it off and on," I heard one Model S owner saying and I agree with him.
3. Improved Easy Entry
Tesla says it has improved Easy Entry so that now when you park, your car's steering wheel and driver's seat adjust for an easy exist after you unbuckle the driver's seat belt.
I like this update. It's very practical. Easy entry on seat belt unbuckle is nice. Some Lexus models have had it for more than a decade. But it's cool how Tesla can update and enable this via an OTA update. This is one of the reasons Tesla will be remembered like the iPhone of the car industry.
