Restore V8 User Interface

3

Description

Have an option to return to V8 UI.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Don’t like the loss of split screen in V9 and loss of upper icons for quick selection of most used features; media, navigation, calendar, energy, backup camera, WEB, phone.  Or even better, leave the choice of functions as a user selective option in the upper end of screen where it is easier to view.  Looking down, finding the up arrow, swiping up and searching for the option is distracting and inconvenient.

Status

V9 42.2 addresses many, but no all, of these issues.

I liked the split screen but have gotten used to v9 with the 42.x updates and on balance I would rather n0t go back. Here is the one thing I agree with from this suggestion: move the controls back to the top of the screen for the S/X. Moving to the bottom might be fine on a Model 3 might be fine, but the bottom of the screen in the S/X is too far down for the driver to be spending much time looking at.
Maintaining multiple user interfaces dramatically increases software development costs. I would prefer that Tesla devote development resources to fixing bugs and improving features rather than maintaining "old mode" options.
