    To my knowledge, there is only the possibility for one destination to be entered at a time.

    It would however be fantastic with multiple destinations, especially for road trips.

    That's so 15 years ago. Back then all GPS's had multiple waypoints. Nowadays people obviously only need to go to one place at a time.

    So stop living in the past and get with the program!

    The navigation software has been missing some basic features like waypoints and route customization since the first software release.

    And with the limitations in the current navigation software (relying on out-of-date offline maps), it seems likely Tesla will have to shift to a better navigation package before full self driving is possible (you can't have the car driving using 2 year old maps!).

    There is a workaround with the current software. Enter the B destination first. The enter the A destination. The navigation software will take you to the first destination. And when you want to look at the route to the B destination, you can quickly switch by tapping on the navigation box, and selecting the B destination from the Recents list.

    We found that was useful when we wanted to force the navigation software to use a specific supercharger on our route.

    I find myself doing this all the time on trips. It's pretty fast to switch.

    8.0 is half way there - Tesla created a very natural display and routing sequence for multiple destinations when all of the intermediate stops are Superchargers as part of the new Supercharger routing and energy prediction system.

    We've been told that 8.1 includes significant revisions to Navigation, so I'm hoping to see that waypoint approach extended to include arbitrary waypoints added by the user and ways of adding/subtracting individual points.

    I'm also hoping the updated phone app we've been told is coming will be able to tap into the same servers/software the car is using, so you can build a plan on the phone and pass it to the car to drive.

    As a workaround right now, you can make an appointment for each item on your phone with addresses, and the app will carry them over to the car's calendar so you can just tap on the next one you want to go to now.

    Not directly. But you can create calendar events with the location specifying the address in your mobile phone. Make sure the Tesla app is set to communicate the calendar to the car. Then when you open the calendar icon in the car you will see your locations. Just touch the next one you want to go to and the navigation will take you to that address.

    In case it would work as a solution and you are not already aware of it:

    I use Waze on my phone - it is also traffic/police/etc. aware and provides accurate arrival times pretty much every trip because it uses info from speed of other users to calculate journey time.

    Having Waze as the in-car Nav for Tesla would be awesome ... but its probably only a dream ... there is a website you can use on central screen that shows the Waze Alerts near where you are, but its not quite the same as being told what is coming up on the route you are driving.
