Nav – Automatic Turn Indicators

36

Now Implemented!

Description

When using navigation, and a turn is expected when following a navigation route, have the turn signal automatically activate (as an option). Should also turn off after the turn is complete.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Since the Model S does nearly everything for me (headlight high beams, automatic wipers, etc.) I have become very lazy.

This might, I suspect, automatically improve the level of courtesy shown by Tesla drivers to the benefit of all road users.

Status

The Navigate on Autopilot signals when it does lane changes. Released around 2019.

Isn't this suggestion already implemented in "Navigate on Autopilot"? My Model 3 has definitely activated its turn signal and taken off-ramps all by itself, with no input from me whatsoever.

I like the idea but the devil is in the details. How soon to turn them on is one more issue as different drivers have very different preferences/habits and this feature is sure to annoy almost everyone.

i dunno, maybe the car can learn from the driver’s habits.

Seems a bit early to elevate the priority on this one.

When the proposed "self parking" and "self recovery" features come into use surely the cars will have to have automatic turn signaling included! I will wait until then.

Signalling at the wrong moment, such as when someone is passing on the right or left of me, can be quite dangerous.
