    I think we should make a list here of how to operate the controls on the 3 for special things, like rebooting the car, getting the Tesla group photo easter egg up, and more.

    I think rebooting the car is holding down both thumb buttons for 5 seconds, but doesn't it involve pressing the brake pedal too?

    I think the list is called the owners manual.

    Read a book? Nah, that's too much effort. Someone scan the book and post it here. I can read from a screen all day, but BOOKS........

    Perhaps a better use of this thread would be to highlight subtle & not so subtle differences in procedures and the interfaces of Model S/X & Model 3.

    Example: Map Traffic Icons

    Model S Traffic Icon (cars)

    Model 3 Traffic Icon (stop light)
