Show Icon for Seat Belt Warning

9

Closed

Description

When using navigation in the S/X, do not overlay the map with the seat belt warning, but use a small icon instead.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Instead of using the full left area of the dash and preventing the driver to see the 3D map, use a small icon in the bottom of the dash, indicating what seats are unbuckled when the car is moving. This will keep the current feature while the car is parked and fix the intrusive alert when the car is moving.

Status

We’re going to close this out as a downgrade in vehicle safety.  Having a clear warning message of a potential problem is better than a cryptic blinking icon.

I don’t want to buckle up my backpack, just because it’s heavy enough to trigger that warning light or keep asking people to fix it when they buckle up to the wrong one in the back seat, it’s just so much easier to the dash be smart about it and warn without being annoying or distracting. It’s not even hard to implement such a change.

Just buckle up, problem fixed.

Or do not press the brake pedal before all the kids have put on their seat belts.
