    I'm having a hard time with the navigation. I set a destination to go one place and I want to come back to my original starting point. I am trying to figure out How to do this in one trip. I think they call that a round-trip. I can't find the settings how to do that. Can somebody help me with this thanks

    How about set your destination, and when you get there set the starting point as your new destination? Am I missing something?

    I am trying to make way points but it doesn't seem to do that.

    Multiple waypoints is not supported.

    Waypoints are not supported.

    Round trips are supported only by showing you how much energy you would have left when you returned back to your starting point, allowing the software to warn you if you attempt to drive to far from a known charger - before you reach a point-of-no-return.

    It's surprising we still don't have waypoints - 4 years after the first Model S was produced...

    Thanks Bob, I ordered my model S for Dec. 2016 my wife & I love to drive. We are unsure about getting the 75 or the 90 kw. I drove the Tasla for 2 days and that model was a 90D. I was trying to figure out how far out from home I can go and return home with a 75 kw. But I was deiving a 90 kw. Not sure if the 75 kw is going to do it with heating and air running. I like to go with the 90 kw but the wife thinks the 75 will do the trick. Thanks for your input .

    Go to evtripplanner.com. Put in your rout for the 70D, which is less than the 75, obviously. If you chart out that route and it makes it, then the 75 should as well. It will at least give you a decent starting point to make an informed decision in your specific case.
