    I've been fiddling with what to put on both the dash and on the touchscreen top and bottom and can't find what the best config is. So I thought I'd see what other drives use as their main configuration. I understand you'll change things, but in general I'd be curious to see what is your goto config:

    Left Dash Display:
    Right Dash Display:
    Top Touchscreen:
    Bottom Touchscreen:
    or Full Screen:
    EDIT: Right scroller:

    For instance, do you always leave your rear camera on at the top? I was trying to put the energy bar in the dash display, but since you can't see the Average Rated Distance remaining in the Dash, I find that I keep going back to the touchscreen.

    Anyways, just wondering what others have settled in on.

    Left dash: energy
    Right dash: music
    Full Screen: maps (arranged to show my whole commute, N up)

    Note: no tech package

    Also, right scroller is fan speed.

    On road trips I may split the touchscreen with the energy meter on top and the map on the bottom
    temporarily while making sure I can make my destination.

    Funny, nearly a year later and I'm still fiddling with this! I seem to have landed longest now with this:

    Left Dash Display: energy graph set at last 15 miles
    Right Dash Display: trip info, Wh/mi etc
    Top Touchscreen: slacker radio currently playing
    Bottom Touchscreen: Tesla weather
    or Full Screen:

    Left dash: Music
    Right dash: Trip
    Top Screen: Music
    Bottom Screen: Map (or Full Screen map)
    right scroll wheel: Temp (but I wish it were Map Zoom)

    During a road trip I may put Energy graph on the right dash and Nav directions automatically go on left dash.

    *In this city no one ever lets you merge. If they see your turn blinker they'll hit the gas. So if I can see their nose in the camera I hit the accelerator and blinker simultaneously, and just go for it!

    Since the dash display isn't touch screen or really interactive, I like to have it display static items. The touch screen is for the apps I interact with the most.

    Left Dash Display: Trips
    Right Dash Display: Energy graph
    Top Touchscreen: Map
    Bottom Touchscreen: Music
    Right scroller: Temp (never use it)
