    Our Tesla's are great at warming car and battery up for us in the morning - it takes less than five minutes generally, in my experience, to get the interior temperature of our cars to 20°C, whatever the outside temperature.

    Only, I have to use the app, given that "smart preconditioning" is, well, beta. What I would really like is "stupid preconditioning"? Something like this:

    If "school day" then start warming up at 7:15 am
    Else If "working day" then start warming up at 7:40 am
    Else start warming up at 8:40 am (to fetch some croissants).
    End If
    (and of course always stop preconditioning after 30 minutes - as is the case now)

    If Tesla's AI is vexed by being left out of this proposal, then I suggest it participates by looking up school vacations and official holidays in my region, to define the variables "school day" and "working day" on that basis :).

    But frankly, that's really all the smartness I currently need from Tesla's AI in respect of preconditioning.

    Frankly I would settle for a simple timer.
    The "smart" pre-conditioning is just stupendously useless.
