    Is there a way to have the volume slowly increase after a phone call or closing the door? Sometimes, as I am sure most of you have, I listen to the radio pretty loud. Once the phone rings the volume is muted but after I hang up, the volume is instantly loud again. Is there a way to change that so it increases slowly?

    Well, we could get it through a software update. In addition, the fan speed should go to 1 when using voice or phone options. GM has done this for some time now.

    These sort of things would have to be user options due to geographical differences. Temps here hit 104F in the sun today, no way would I want to be toasted because someone called me on the phone.

    I've never really noticed a significant drop in effectiveness in my GM. I live in the desert, with avg summer temps in 90-110 range. I guess the drive could also defeat the setting by manually raising fan temps to balance for noise and volume.

    Thank You Spatters. Once the phone call rings incoming I can't even turn my volume down on my radio anymore. Once either of us hangs up, it goes back to full volume instantly. I agree with you 100 percent on the air conditioning volume as well. That would be cool if they could put both of those options into a future update.

    What is the best method (email, forum post) to send a request like this for consideration on future updates?

    Email ownership at teslamotors.com and they will pass it on to the appropriate team.
