Schedule Option for Cabin Preheating or Precooling

30

Description

Add an option to set a specific time to turn on climate control each day of the week. Once the desired cabin temperature is reached, perhaps it turns off after a few minutes.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Preheating the cabin manually using the app is inconvenient, if you like to do this every day at the same time, e.g. in Winter commuting.  Ideal for situations when the automatic preconditioning does not work well.

Some other cars offer a schedule option such as the BMW i3 and Jaguar I-Pace.

But we need an individual time for each day, not the same time every day of the week.

And it must be settable from the app so that people with varying plans can easily configure the next week.

Also, being able to set departure time from Google Calendar events would be useful. For example adding an event with the "Tesla departure" in the title or comments. Could also be activated for calendar events with a location, taking driving time into consideration for calculating the departure time.
A "one time" scheduled time (kind of like a notification) would be great. I don't have regular schedules, but I often know some time in advance (at best the night before) when I will be leaving, so being able to set a timer to heat the car at xx:xx, or even a countdown till start would be very helpful. Our Nissal Leaf allowed us to do this; super convenient to just set the starting time when I go to bed.
