    How do you change the position of the arrow on Goggle Sat Map?

    Just tap and drag the map. That unlocks the center positioning of the arrow. Now the the map will not move as the car moves. To recenter the cars' position, touch the little circle in the top right corner of the map to turn it blue again.

    Alternatively, if your Google Maps is currently showing directions, a double tap on the first row of directions will re-center and follow you.

    I think you mean if the Navigon GPS system's showing directions? The Model S turn-by-turn is from the Navigon GPS system (I think it's Navigon)--not from Google Maps.

    But interesting, thanks; I didn't know you could do that. 7 months and I'm still learning. . . .
