Let’s keep going through the list of what’s new from least useful to most useful. You will also be pleasantly surprised to find two new games, the original version of sonic as well as a Sudoku. Note that for sonicyou absolutely need a gamepad that you plug in via one of the USB-C ports.

We have noted a number of new features in the original article, which we invite you to consult. What seemed interesting to us to show you is undoubtedly the reorganization of the interface. If you are used to this interface, you will not be lost, but you will be pleasantly surprised to see that Tesla has arranged the elements differently.

The navigation software has also evolved with the possibility of adding intermediate stages. You will now be able to modify them more easily, to add or modify a stop. By the way, Tesla has added the ability to delete card details if that bothers you.

In short, it is certainly the most useful update of the year. While Light Show mode may bring a smile, the changes to the interface will save valuable time on the road. As for the new function which automatically activates one of the two side cameras when you activate the corresponding indicator, this novelty makes it possible to optimize safety on board.
