I’m watching your dashboard product with great interest. At this moment it’s missing a few practical aspects, but below suggests a powerful display option I hope you’re interested in.
My interest, like many, is back-filling missing important
driver information expected at the driver center dashboard and in their line of site. Many drivers express a need for “line of site” access to common information. Speed, headlight status, range, even outside temperature and etc. You have most of that handled nicely! You also do a VERY nice job in handling turn signal alerts and blind sport alerting. However, that doesn’t work unless the turn signal is on. This creates an awareness gap between Tesla and everybody’s else who uses full-time blind spot alerts in side-view mirrors.
There is a different way. Tesla provides a “traffic visualization display” modeling traffic surrounding the car. Such a display shown on a drivers dash display would be a tremendous advantage! Teslogic could keep the turn signal color alerts at display edges and even use part of the screen for common information.
This pushes display size needed to at least a larger sized phone. I suggest you develop support for a small tablet. The Fire 8 HD and/or the Samsung A7 Lite are inexpensive, appropriately sized, and would allow for a more permanent installation.
A few other comments/suggestions:
- Your website doesn’t mention or show the navigation screen that is mentioned in the video. I’d probably add that.
- Outside temperature is critical information for those of us in snow/ice area’s. May I suggest you add this to the main screen?
- High beam status would be nice on the main screen as well.
- If the main screen gets cluttered, HP and energy used information really isn’t needed or pertinent to a “main” screen. Nice to have, but more appropriate on other screens.
If you elect to consider these an want beta testers, let me know. I’d be happy to buy and test the product if it was heading in the above directions.
