Larger Automatic Hold Indicator

45

Description

Provide a larger automatic hold “H” indicator.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

The “H” indicating automatic hold is small and sometimes behind the steering wheel. I realize there are other clues, such as the brake light simulation, but it would be even better to have a large, quite large, red “H” just to the right of the car image.

Brake Hold is a very nice feature that should be explained to new owners at delivery time. This explanation would have saved us one expensive roll-back at a slanted Starbucks, when motor creep did not hold the car like our previous (gas) car.

Yes, in its present location the "H" can be difficult to see!

This is a good idea.  Perhaps relocate it slightly....right under the autosteer indicator.

Perhaps show the "(H)" in place of the "O" in the speed display when brake hold is  engaged

The other day I found that the "Brake Hold" feature does not stay on forever at least on my 2015 Model S.  It was an extended wait an a level intersection and after some amount of time my vehicle started creeping forward without any warning.  It was a good thing I was paying attention because there was no audio beep and as you all know Tesla's are quiet and roll really silently so again I was lucky I was paying attention.  I just wanted to pass this on in case this feature is actually designed to work like this.
