    As much as I enjoy the wonder of the built-in iPad type display, there are times when driving when I would like the screen to be blank. Is there a way to turn the display off? If not, I am sure that this can be accomplished with a software update. Any chance?

    I've thought the same. One less distraction. Switching media to full screen is the closest I've come to a calm neutral display.

    I usually leave the Nav screen on, but if I want something really benign, I activate the Tesla Time clock.

    Thanks. I'll have to give that a try. I was at the drive in and even at the lowest setting the main screen seemed too bright.

    Turn the brightness setting all the way down to 0?
