Remote Screen Access

59

Description

Have an option to access the 17″ screen from a PC at home to plan routes, check and amend settings etc beyond the small functionality of the smartphone app.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Would be possible to add VNC, TeamViewer or similar software to the car to allow this – obviously with sufficient safeguards in place.  Perhaps only over WiFi, only when stationary and only when at ‘Home’.

or add an API to forward a route to the navigation

that way we do not get direct access to the car and Tesla can add strong validation to the request
Plus the capability to plan routes from any location, not only the current one...
Also, add the capability to plan a route from your location (home) and assume the car is fully charged.  I tried to plan a trip while in the garage with only about 100 miles range left.  The trip was to go South and West, but the planner sent me 70 miles north first as I couldn't make the Supercharger to the south with the amount of charge the car currently had.
OnStar has the ability to send map information to the Volt for their mobile app, would be great to do the same with MS
And should include to pre-download map data (i.e. when planning a trip to a very remote place w/o mobile provider in reach; often in areas w/ a lot of mountains)
