GPS based Lighting Shutoff Delay

23

Description

This feature would allow you to choose the locations where you want to leave the headlights on after leaving the car based on GPS location.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Currently, you can have the car retain the external lights after you leave the car or not. There is an energy penalty for that, which is undesirable. However, it’s a very desirable feature when you are not at home.

Moderator: The power draw is actually quite trivial.  At 50W (it’s likely less), the LED headlights being on for 90 seconds consume about 0.004 miles of range (about 20 feet).

The charge penalty for the lights is pretty small compared to one mile of driving. :)
