Tesla's CEO said that this update would be “coming very soon”. In fact, it came this morning. Torque News will cover it very soon. and you can read about it in our Tesla News section.

I am hoping the 8 camera dashcam system 'Stitches' the images for a 360 birds eye! Should help alleviate curb rash and front under bumper scraping when parking nose first!

Unless it is a dashcam that I can access, view, download etc the video from, anytime I want than it is pretty useless. I want to know how valet parking guys treat my Model S.

If they actually added a 360 camera view using those Autopilot cameras (to be used when parking, etc), I might be persuaded to upgrade my Model S from my 2012.

Heated windows and seat via app will be nice.
Recognize signs will be nice.

But i really miss quicker automatic brightness adjustment of the screens when the car enters a dark tunnel. The automatic brightness adjustment is really slow today (faster adjustment will increase driving safety as well).

I would like the App to alert if the car is NOT plugged in - sometimes I forget to plug in when I get home - major issues if I get out to the car in the morning and it is 2/3 depleted...
The App could easily communicate with the car, knows when scheduled charging time is and knows if it is plugged in. I would want an alert/alarm to go off to remind me to plug in!

Still waiting for the smooth-as-silk AP... AP on secondary roads still tries to run into trees and on-coming traffic

I find 8 and 4 the most useful. Is the battery level readable on a smartphone ? And an alerts for no power connected

Closing in on AP 1. Recordable daschcam will be very nice , and hopefulle with accsess from app.
Still wish to adjust front passenger seat from screen.

Still waiting for an electronically dimming sunroof.

I see Fisker's E-motion is flaunting one, along with electronically dimming rear windows. What's the holdup?
