    Along the top of the 17" display are a bunch of icons for time, temperature etc. One is for wifi. I noticed on the wifi one (and only on the wifi one) if you hold your finger down on it after about 10 seconds there's a little blink/animation. I did it a few times to confirm and none of the other ones do this. I know if you do a long press on the Tesla logo you get the mysterious service mode login but this wifi one is different. Anyone know what a long press on the wifi icon triggers?

    Might be a "reconnect", to make the wifi to connect to a different access point with better reception? Anyone tried how the car behaves if it can detect more than one (pre configured) wifi network, and what happens if the signal strength of one of them changes?
