    Has anyone ever suggested an enhancement to their GPS app so you can avoid tolls? In most GPS systems you can find a setting in there to avoid tolls. If Telsa uses Garmin for their maps why couldn't they use their information related to tolls?

    Just about as many times as there are Tesla owners.

    I'm much prefer they implemented a "no boats (ferries)" option in routing.

    I noticed that today while looking for something else, and it was already checked to avoid tolls. Not sure how long this option has existed and if I might have seen it in May when first setting up my car. But if it just came out in the last few weeks apparently the default is to avoid tolls, which is nice.
