    Anybody know if we should worried about the center touchscreen getting sun or heat damage if we don't have a protective sun shield when parked?

    Not referring to the sun shield they give out now for the upper half of the windshield but more concerned about when the car is parked in the heat and the computer/screen is baking in the heat.
    Thanks.

    Considering the car is born in California, a place that I'm pretty sure has hot sunny weather 364 days a year, I wouldn't think to worry about it. Of all the complaints that I've read on Tesla, this has never been one of them.
