Add to the minimalist look by allowing for a mostly blank screen option

    The screen has a wonderful, inutiutive interface. Really easy to use. If there were an option to turn the navigation side of the screen, on and off at our discretion, to all black or white [let's face it --90% of the time, we know where we are, and are going, at least when in the car -not necessarily in life!] this would just add to the clean, quiet look and feel, without distractions. One can change the look through the tesla icon, using tothe drawing screen -which isn't bad --but then once the music is turned on, this screen disappears.

    Hopefully a customizable screen will be added as a feature one day. The model 3 would look quite good with a large analogue speedo, kind of like a Mini (an enlarged version of the old Model S speedo would look great)

    Maybe that's why they added the Mars feature.

    You can try enabling the screen clean mode to have an all black screen (not sure if it allows you to use it when driving though or if it times out after a certain amount of time). But then you lose your instrumentation. ;)

    I took my delivery yesterday. I 100% agree that a "minimal" mode or something to decrease distractions would allow you to just drive!!!

    Great idea.

    Would also like a large (as in LARGE) button for turning AC on and off while driving at 70mph without going into tiny menu.
