Navigation doesn't show the exit?

    This seems very strange, every gps on the planet shows what exit you should get off except Tesla. Am I missing something?

    They must have the data, it's basically a UI issue. Just add a single line under the next turn section.

    I don't understand, the navigation always tells me what exit number to get off. For example, "In one mile, take exit 16 on the right for Jones Road."

    I’m talking about voice. I think it’s much more pleasant to follow the voice directions than to keep glancing at the turn by turn list.

    It should tell you visually.

    If I'm looking for an exit I'm not familiar with, it's much safer to listen to instructions than having to stare at a screen and take my eyes off the road. At least with the current state of autopilot.

    I was shocked today when I missed my exit due to the nav not actually listing it visually. Agreed on this being an annoying oversight. It's also annoying how the next turn is way over on the right, on the farthest part of the screen which is the toughest and hardest to see. Who designed this UI?

    If only we actually had an instrument cluster where this information could be displayed. What a crazy request ... :rolleyes:

    The same person who put the clock time in a small font on the far right side with a background that varies based on the nav display.
    The car is great. The features are great. The touch screen is highly configurable and versatile, in theory, but with a dozen or so minor mistakes like this.
