Description

For the turn-by-turn navigation instructions, have an option that only calls out after X meters/yards, turn left or right rather than attempting to announce a street name of where to turn.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

In countries that do not have Tesla language support, one basically needs to turn the nav voice off completely, because the street names (when pronounced phonetically English) are complete gibberish.

Description

If the web browser would support the GeoLocation API, you could use numerous third-party online navigation systems at your leisure. Examples of online navigation systems are: Google Maps, including Google Streetview (this is the real Google Maps, like you use in any other web browser), Nokia Here, Bing Maps, MapQuest, and more.

Also other services, such as Yelp for example, require the GeoLocation API to function.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

No cost, software upgrade.

Currently, the web browser does not allow third party maps, out of commercial reasons, a Tesla sales rep in the Netherlands told me. I’m not convinced that this is correct, but I add it out of completeness.

Now available with v5.9 software.

Description

The Waze navigation app is different from other solutions in that it integrates information from all its users in real-time. If you don’t know it, you may want to try it. For more information, visit the Waze homepage.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

There are Waze apps for Android and iOS. I am not aware of any existing built-in sat nav solutions that integrate Waze.

Integration of Waze in Tesla’s on-board system would require access to GPS and internet, at a minimum. Being able to display the Waze navigation in the instrument cluster (rather than on the touch screen only) would be an added bonus.

Moderator: Note that Google has not made a API available for license, so until one is available, no carmaker can integrate Waze into a car.  It still can be made available via the web.
