    I'd like to use the side repeater cameras WHILE DRIVING FORWARD, as another safety tool, watching my flanks before changing lanes.
    By touching the camera button on the bottom left of the screen you can get the full view of the backup camera.

    Is there a way to turn on ONLY the 2 side repeaters views (without the full backup view), so that most of the screen remains visible, while driving forward?

    Should look something like that:

    Indeed. Even though he may have timing issues....he always seems to keep his promise.

    Has anyone had this feature yet. I have been wanting this since day 1. Honda had it and they are phasing it out. Hope Tesla brings it on.

    So far those cameras only show up on the screen while backing out. Not yet with the use of turn signals.

    Could be me, but this seems like a safety "solution" that will result in a less safe driving experience. Isn't this what side-view mirrors are for?

    I imagine the car in the view will show up as more than an image that one has to actually focus on intently. Could be red or yellow highlight. Might take the image the camera sees and highlights the blind spotted car with a bounding box of sorts so one could see at a glance what or if anything is in the frame.

    Blind spots are mostly a myth. Stop wasting 1/4-1/3 of your mirror space on the side of your car and they magically go away.

    My wife's Honda pilot already does this (well, right side camera only) and it's the GREATEST. No joke, it's the BEST.

    The best part about her Pilot is that it superimposes lines on the display that show how many car lengths the cars are behind you.

    I NEED this in my Model 3.

    Or you can learn how to properly adjust your mirrors or replace them with convex mirrors

    Im not sure looking to the side and down for cars in a video (that lags slightly) makes driving safer.

    as opposed to looking completely backwards over your shoulder to check it?

    Who looks completely over their shoulder? If your side view mirrors are set properly and you still have issues get convex replacements. I did that and can see everything I need by glancing at the mirrors.

    anyone without a blind spot mirror likely does. i don't know anyone who was taught to drive that wasn't taught to check your blind spot before changing lanes...
