    At the office, there is a low hanging pipe over the rear hatch in the assigned parking space.

    To avoid hitting the pipe with the rear hatch spoiler, the height for the opening hatch has been set low enough to avoid hitting the pipe.

    Setting the height at the office garage applies the same height setting everywhere.

    Setting the height at the house to open fully - causes it to open fully at the garage.

    On page 18 of the Model X manual, it indicates there is a sensor that detect low ceilings and restricts opening of the FWD and rear hatch. Since that's likely the sensor in the roof above the FWDs, that sensor probably doesn't detect an obstruction only over the rear hatch.

    That page also states that the rear hatch opening height can be saved for that location - but the description only mentions saving the setting for the FWDs, so it's not clear the rear hatch opening height is being saved by location.

    Has anyone been able to set their rear hatch height to be a different height at one location - and another height everywhere else (or another location)?
