Tesla Model S

Bjorn Nyland prepared an interesting comparison of the 6.2 and 7.0 firmware from the non-Autopilot user perspective and is providing suggestions for changes for the upcoming 7.1 update.

Most of the suggestions are accurate, as it seems that Tesla worsened ergonomics of some data in 7.0

In the instrument cluster, useful indicators of range and driving mode (P R N D) in the center were moved to the left and right, replaced by a not very useful car icon and odometer. And on the right the date is gone.

Also, the old trip meter was awesome, while the new one is almost useless according to Bjorn, especially because it resets after you stop the car and open the door.

There are alot more suggestions for the touchscreen and all of them are presented below, while Bjorn hopes for comments about other changes.

"I describe some of the differences between software 6.2 and 7.0 and suggest changes. When I get enough comments and views, I will tweet Elon Musk this video."
