Been driving the model 3 for a few weeks and overall loving it so far. What are your top feature requests that you would like to see in your model 3 that could be accomplished via software update?

Here are my ideas that I would love to see in order of preference:
- Automatic audio volume adjustment based on vehicle speed
- Easier access to changing audio source (even with the update, have to reach all the way to the right of the screen)
- Blindspot detection & alerts similar to other cars
- Be able to lock the car door when I'm inside it (I grew up in a city and a time where car jacking was a thing).
- Be able to use onboard cameras as a dashcam through the mobile app or vehicle app
- Be able to turn off annoying backseat seat belt warnings (I have kids and sometimes they use the middle seat buckle when sitting on the right side).

Curious to hear what others would like.

Battery warming without having to have the car in drive or headed to a supercharger. There are times I may be parked out of town somewhat near a supercharger that I don't want to charge on the way in. However, if I let the battery cold soak overnight the car can't get the battery warm enough fast enough (especially the RWD) to get fast charge speeds. If i could start warming the battery about 15 or 20 minutes before I'm ready to leave, via the app, this would be much better.

As well as to just have full regen right away on driving.

please fix the voice activation of song requests. When I request a song to be played I want it to just play. I don't want to see a keyboard pop up on my screen. How dumb that is!

1) sentry cam player on screen which highlights on the segments with movement
2) ability to have a "stealth" sentry mode which doesn't flash the headlights and annoys just normal folks walking by
