Save Car Settings with Driver Profile


Now Implemented!


The car does not save certain settings (steering response and regen) with the driver profile. I feel these are preferences and should be considered with all my seat adjustments, too.




Now saved since at least 2018.

BMW's, for example, tie these setting to the key flob.  I would be game for this.

Saving with the fob is a different feature than what is stated here. What is stated here is already implemented.

Several bits have been added in OTA firmware updates, these I found easily in changelogs:
-February 18, 2016 (2.12.45) Creep on/off setting linked to driver profile
-March 24, 2014 (1.51.88) Firmware 5.9 Smart Air Suspension
Speed range for High and Very High has been increased.
You can now drive at Low at any speed, and you can set the speed at which the car transitions to low. Controls > Settings > Vehicle. This is saved to the driver profile. Options are Always, Never or any speed from 55 to 100 mph
-Oct, 2013 (1.45.45) Firmware 5.3 Seat heater settings added to driver profiles.
-Version 4.0 (v1.17.50) November 30th, 2012 Metric/Imperial Units

I used to own a year 2000 Jaguar van den Plas - even back then it included a feature to move the driver's seat back, and sterring wheel up out ot the way, to enable an easier vehicle exit. I was shocked to experience the Tesla S without this basic feature.

Presets are set or unset if you hit the scroll wheel on the right side of the steering wheel.

As Ty says, the settings should be saved with the fob.  Even my 2002 Jeep does that!

And M's suggestion of backup and transfer is one that I was going to make.

Would be great to backup all the car settings to allow easy transfer to another Tesla car when moving to a new model.

But they are not saved with the fob. I want driver profiles to be saved before I get in the car with my fob so that I can actually get in the seat after my wife who is a foot shorter than I am has driven it.

My MS remembers my seat preferences, mirrors, steering wheel, Regen and steering settings.  I know this because my wife has different settings and they change when her profile is selected.
