Send Messages to Car



Offer a means to send short messages from Tesla’s phone app to appear on the car’s main display.


It would be quite useful to enable a message to come up on the screen from the spouse at home to remind the driver to bring home the milk.  The chime could be implemented for the incoming text. While cell phones already do messaging, the Tesla can be thought of as a four-wheeled phone that happens to carry its inhabitants down the road.

Wouldn't the better implementation simply be to enable incoming texts to my phone to appear on the screen? No need to use the Tesla app to send texts that way. My Garmin bike computer does that so it's technically quite feasible.
