    Has anyone figured out how to rotate the screen toward the driver? I'm getting really serious about wanting to do this.

    Thanks for any links or info!

    Pull really hard?

    PS Don't do that.

    PPS There's a thread on here about someone who modified the mount to tilt more toward the driver, but I feel like it's a solution in search of a problem, personally. My wife loves sitting in the car with me and having full access to controls the same way I do.

    Techforum is working on one:

    You can put down a deposit and buy the kit when it's available.

    Nope. Too industrial looking and not easily adjustable. When I’m waiting in a parking lot for someone, I would want to swing it toward me for surfing, gaming, etc. then return it quickly to driving position when I’m ready to leave. This isn’t that.

    Yes I recall that thread as well. I just searched the Model 3 forums for “angled center display”, “rotated center display”, “movable center screen”, “tilted center screen” and various other combinations and could not find it. But I know it exists. Somewhere...

    Funny, I'd want a rotating/tilting one to push towards my passenger so they could watch something or play a game while I am driving without distracting me.

    I often travel during sporting events. I can't tell you the number of times we stream the game on my phone so the audio is through the car radio, but the video is hidden from me by either being upside down or my son watching it.

    Would be nice to stream Netflix but only if the screen were turned away. As it is, I "watch" Netflix while driving and just listen while the others watch. Same with Karokee, let the words pop, but I can't be watching them... or as FSD becomes better, maybe I *can* watch them while on the highway...

    Man... talk about first world problems lol

    On that note, I want robotic hands to pop out from the footwell and give me a foot rub. Time to tweet Elon.

    I just want an ambient light shining downwards from underneath there to give the interior some excitement at night.

    From under the screen? You could stick a push button LED light if you really wanted to try.

    This sounds like a fantastic way to void any warranty that would apply to the display.

    I agree, Matt has spent a lot of time working on this mount.

    Those robotic hands could be used to deter those drivers who like to sleep while using Autopilot. If after 7 nag alerts the driver doesn't respond then a nice swift jab in the groin area would serve as an effective wake-up call.

    Yeah from under and behind. I could put one of those LED lights there but I just know when the battery runs out I'll likely never replace them lol.

    Camping ones can be charged by USB cable. Such as Fenix brand or others sold at REI.

    Still new never installed
