Make HomeLink easier to activate.
When the HomeLink menu automatically drops down as you enter the location of the remote receiver, clicking the right thumbwheel would activate the HomeLink button highlighted in green. Return the right thumbwheel programming to its previous function when the HomeLink dropdown is retracted. This eliminates the need to lean forward to tap the HomeLink button on the center console and keeps the driver’s eyes on the road.
For multiple HomeLink buttons programmed for the same zone of proximity, you could designate which one should act as the primary to be bound to the thumbwheel. The secondary can still be activated via the touchscreen or selected by scrolling with the thumbwheel.
No other car has this feature.
When I first suggested this feature back in 2013, Tesla’s method for activating HomeLink was relatively primitive. Now that HomeLink is activated automatically, based on GPS, I no longer see a need for this feature to be tied to the thumbwheel.
Moderator: We’ll consider this implemented with the GPS-based auto open and close feature, so no such button function is needed.
