    Yes.

    Tesla development calls this the "Keep the doggies alive" mode (same principal applies - you want to leave your Sound/Heat/AC etc. on for a user-definable time period, or until the battery runs down to a specified level).

    About 15 months ago ownership told me that they were very close to releasing it. So any day now...

    Would personally love to see swivel front seats and the availability of a table so you can sit four for a meal like VW did/does with their camper van.

    At night the tablet could display a campfire and the sound system could play crickets chirping or waves lapping on the beach.

    Okay that last sentence is lame but swivel seats and table option please! :)

    This is great! It will also work for keeping the audio going for drive-in movies. The US spec cars can switch off the DRLs.
    Also, to make it even darker, put the screen in cleaning mode.
    Cleaning mode will also make it harder for little fingers to take the parking brake off ;)
