    Poke around in this twitter thread and maybe you can figure it out. From context and timing I'd guess that it's the "sneak peek" of 2.x FSD firmware. HW3 only.

    this one is one is kinda odd to me. I can roll the same scroll wheel and set the temperature much quicker than using a click and waiting on the voice command dialogue to change it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Rofl. Remember guys, “later this year” your cars will:
    • Recognize and respond to traffic lights and stop signs.
    • Automatic driving on city streets
    Or, you know, show you a picture of a traffic light as you blow right through it. Totally the same thing. :confused:

    Still MUCH faster to tap the button “seat Icon” that is persistent on the bottom of the screen ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Just one car. Probably an early access car that really isn't supposed to be on TeslaFI. Not sure if that's the version they're planning to give us or if it'll be a later build, but that has to be a trial version for the holiday release we've been teased with in some fashion.

    The point is obviously not speed, but safety.

    Exactly. The car recognizes the traffic lights and stop signs, and responds by displaying a 3D model of them on the IC. Feature complete!

    What seems to be the problem?

    For front seats but not rear. That's buried with 4 clicks and unnecessarily turning on HVAC.

    I think I can still do two simple clicks easier than hoping my car recognizes “turn on right rear heated seat”

    kinda odd that you feel unsafe making two clicks. Never seemed / seems a bit unsafe to me. But to each his own ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Regardless of how it seems to you, taking your eyes off the road and hand off the wheel - no matter how brief - is a distraction from driving and has obvious and objectively measurable effects on safety.

    Of course, nobody is suggesting you have to change anything or use the new features. I'm merely pointing out that to suggest it's "quicker" to go mash the screen is to miss the point.

    Some people will be more distracted by pressing steering wheel buttons and making verbal commands hoping they work than simply pressing two buttons on the MCU. It’s far less distracting than using streaming music buttons to find a selection / genre / type of music to listen to. But I’m guessing you don’t do that either? Lol

    Sigh.

    Which is why it's good to have options. I'm not sure if this is actually hard for you to grasp, or if you're just arguing to argue.
