    Anyone know if the GPS will have more intelligent features for planning longer trips?

    For instance, if you pick a location 310 miles away and plot it into your GPS, would the GPS be able to suggest routes that would keep speeds to 40 mph so that you would reach your destination, or warn you if you switch on A/C or heating? Will it be able to determine if you need to charge at some point before you reach your destination and inform you of this? Will it be able to access a database of chargers (maybe only Tesla Superchargers) and recommend a route via this charge point?

    I haven't heard a lot about these types of features, has anyone else?

    I have found that the walking or bicycle routes on Google maps tends to show routes where you can keep your speeds down.
