If they did not do this, would the "buttons" not be too small to push while driving?
My apologies. I completely misread the request. You are asking for wrapped text to appear. I thought you were asking for it to go away. That would make the rows thinner, which would not, as the default height is as shown on the left side of the screen. Yes, I agree. There is room to wrap text to the next line and that would be very helpful, and an easy fix.I believe there is more than sufficient space within the text area. No need to movie or adjust the size of buttons. Of course, it would make it look more cluttered. But that is only for those tracks that have long names or long artist name(s).
By the way, in my request, I also mentioned left-right scrolling/scrollable name, as an alternative.
Perhaps off-topic for this particular thread... but I agree with you that logically, both things could happen simultaneously -- they did in my other former luxury vehicles. What we don't know is if Tesla didn't think about this refinement, or perhaps there is intent in their design, e.g. to not use too much power for some reason at the same time. We'll never quite know here unless we see the "in parallel" improvement one day.I took the recommendation of suggestions from this site and created an exit profile that moves the drivers seat back and raises the steering wheel for easier exit. Seems to me that programming 101 would suggest that these two actions should happen in parallel. Today the seat moves back then the steering wheel goes up. Shouldn't be that tough.
I'm probably stating the obvious here, but you could press the button in the trunk handle, or you could use the keyfob. I always use one of those two over doing it from the center console.2) Is there an easier way to open the trunk? When I get home from groceries and I park the car I have to: 1) touch the control panel 2) press the unlock button to activate the trunk icon and then 3) press the trunk button for it to open.

Great job, BertL, in both putting this together and trying to maintain discipline to this thread.
OK, here is one my old Infiniti had, and I'm sure half a dozen others have: A "favorite" caller list. Right now when you click on the steering wheel to make a call, you get the choice of either pulling up your contact list (ughhhh, 2000 names) or your "recent" calls. Other cars allow you to program in your five (or whatever) "favorites" for faster selection, like my iPhone does. These could either appear directly in the menu with "Contacts" and "Recent" or, second best, you would see "Favorites" in that menu and have to click down a menu to get to your list. Better yet, voice command, "Call Favorites Joanna", so I don't see and have to pick from every joanna in my phone book -- it just calls my one favorite joanna immediately.
I think all Tesla's efforts from here forward are going to be refining Autopilot reliability on poorly marked roads, building the next generation of autonomous driving hardware/software - and figuring out how the hell to ramp Model 3 production.
The detailed refinements and small glitch fixes so many here want for their Model S's? I seriously doubt it's gonna happen now that we know where Tesla's big focus is going for the future.
I reported this to Tesla back in February or March of 2013. Reported it again several times over 2014 and 2015.
