Location Aware Suspension Height Setting

110

Now Implemented!

Description

Have the car automatically change to high suspension mode at a specified location or area. This helps for dirt roads, poorly maintained roads (lots of potholes), or roads with large speed bumps.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

The challenge is to provide a good user interface for selecting the active area and having the suspension change made prior to entering the area.

Status

A Tesla patent on such as system issued in April 2014 (Vehicle Air Suspension Control System).

Available with version 6.0+ software.

Looking forward to test the implementation. Just got the 6.0 sw update and it looks good from the release notes.

Agree!I have a cumbersome curb both at home and at a friends house. Would be nice if the car remembered to raise suspension to High at home and Very high at my friends house. I remember to set the position 97 out of a 100 times, but I'm not the only one driving the car.

Many examples of when this would be helpful. I cannot easily drive my S into the parking lot of my daughter's school because of a large dip with a busy road. It is too awkward and slow to adjust height while driving.

I've seen a similar suggestion that mentioned automatically raising the suspension when you get home (for people steep driveways). This obviously encompasses that scenario, just thought I'd call it out specifically. :-)

Seems like the tech is already in the car.   This should be an easy addition.
