And while this kind of nonsense is being added, the hands-free phone calling feature is still hovering in the 1990's and you have to take your eyes off the road to find the tiny icon that [fill in the blank for a given function]. I love driving my Model S, but am madder than a hornet at the missing software upgrades that are meaningful while all this happy horsepucky is announced with great glee.

I totally agree with you. I paid over 50000 for my model 3 LR RWD without EAP. I would like a software upgrade that gives me adaptive cruise control like most other 50K + cars have.

How do I switch from recirculated air to fresh air intake with the scroll wheel or a voice command?

*unless he or someone else is in the car, then you can command them to do it with your voice. Asking nicely works, too.

But the guy I was responding to assured me that "you do not have to take your eyes off the road with a model s or x"! Sounds like it might have been a preconditioned ideal rather than knowledge coming from experience? ;)

you do not have to take your eyes off the road with a model s or x. Just set your Right scroll wheel to recent calls and look at your screen ahead or use voice command. Jeeez
Great. Then reset the wheel to handle the fan. Then reset it to do one of the dozen other things it does -- all of which require looking at the panel and choosing. Sorry, all I asked for was the same voice command phone that I had in my 2013 Volt and my 2009 Lexus. Jeez.

What part of the phone isn't hand's free? Genuine question. Mine works for calling my contacts without my hands. I have to click to confirm if it can't decide between ~2 however.
I say, "Call so-and-so, mobile" and I get a name I've never seen before in my life. On the second or third try I usually get the name I originally asked for...then have to sort (while looking at the panel) through their landline, vacation home, fax and mobile numbers to pick the one I want. My Volt heard "mobile" and chose that number without having to be told manually, and never asked me if I wanted to call some mystery person along the way. If yours works better than that, I want whatever you have...even if it means my horn won't oink like a pig.
