Thats where it gets a bit wonky online. I originally posted a story from Carscoops that said that, and ripped Tesla a new one. Then I looked up Model 3 pictures and saw that there is a stalk with wiper controls, and edited my post to rip Carscoops a new one. Then I reread the post and saw that they yell about touchscreen wiper controls and very briefly mention the stalk at the end so I deleted my post.No wiper controls? You have to be kidding.
Not really, the firmware exists but interface and such might still be worked on. They might also be working on multi-phone logic, perhaps even proximity detection. I don't know what's under the hood there but I can see not having the software ready. Also remember it's Tesla, they have to reinvent the wheel every time, just look at Space X.No it doesn't, because software to use that hardware does already exist in the other models. Writing a completely new version for the 3 would be Stuten unnecessarily expensive.
Technically you would be doing what the buttons want you to do... A touchscreen is more flexible for features.Wow this thing is the epitome of stupidity. Cannot control your vents or wipers manually? Fuck what ever techno douche bag millennial that thinks you need to control EVERYTHING from that stupid jumbo screen. Give me manual controls so I can do what *I* want.
Not a problem in the S and X, there's a sensor that changes the brightness depending on the ambient light. I have driven both of them in the dark, it's really no problem.The second is I always hated big luminous things at my eyes' level, because they cannot adjust to the road and let me see in partial darkness (I keep the dial's lighting low and I had my radio set on red illumination to reduce their impact). How is a big -WHITE- 15'' monitor helpful in this regard? What about reflections on the windscreen or on the windows? I hope it can be at least be put in some night mode, or its light intensity reduced at will.
I tend to want to limit the number of lights in the car, my phone has a sensor that makes it darker at night too and yet....Not a problem in the S and X, there's a sensor that changes the brightness depending on the ambient light. I have driven both of them in the dark, it's really no problem.
