    Hello everyone,
    Very often I need to visit 5-6 addresses in a row.

    It's quite easy to create such a route in Google Maps desktop.

    Is there any way to add this route to your maps on Tesla Model 3?
    Thanks a lot!

    This is one of those cases where the amazing experience of driving in a car from the future is interrupted to remind you that not *all* of the car is from the future. The maps and media experience is not on par with what you may used to from mobile apps or other vehicles.

    I agree it doesn't look smart in such a SMART car.

    does the 3 integrate the calendar, like the S and X? Mostly people create a series of appointments with the waypoint addresses. When they shows up in the car, you can touch the address to navigate.

    A cludge, I know, but it works for some

    The 3 does not currently have the calendar feature. I don't know if they plan to add it.

    It would be fantastic if the google maps implementation in the car could link with one's google account to pull sophisticated routes down to the car.

    Alternatively, I would not mind sitting with an enhanced Tesla App to plan a complex trip so long as the app could then communicate it to the car. Seems like a lot of work to duplicate what Google Maps already does for us.

    The forthcoming V9 software reportedly adds waypoints, to allow a user to enter multiple destinations for a single trip. Initially, users will need to setup waypoints in the car, but, in the future, Tesla could add the ability to enter waypoints using the Android / iPhone app.

    Elon said September (= look for the update in November).

    Elon already announced that Calendar Integration is "coming soon" to the 3 (no ETA given but those are meaningless from him anyway).
