Tesla Navigation Waypoints Spotted in Coding, Could Be One of Elon Musk's Holiday OTA Presents

Tesla Navigation Waypoints Spotted in Coding, Could Be One of Elon Musk's Holiday OTA Presents
Waypoints in Tesla's navigation system are a sought-after feature that Tesla owners have been requesting for a long time. With this function, it would be possible to enter several destinations at once on one trip in the navigation system. Finally, in September, Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to numerous inquiries and confirmed that waypoints would be coming to its cars, although no specific dates were given.
Now, it looks like Tesla Navigation waypoints will indeed soon arrive via a software update. Hacker @greentheonly/Twitter discovered in the code that it should be possible to set multiple waypoints at the same time. He also pointed out that it still feels raw, but is more essential than random references in the code.

Of course, the exact timeline for when this feature will become available is not known. But given that Musk has promised that the holiday update will include many things that owners asked for--as well as many that they did not even know they wanted--there is a high probability that Navigation waypoints will be packaged in.

In fact, adding waypoints is of great importance. This is especially useful when planning routes. Owners can immediately mark all the places they plan to visit, and the car will calculate the route in such a way that, without unnecessary encumbrances, deliver the owners to all destinations--also taking into account any charging station stops. This way the owners can truly completely relax and enjoy the trip to the fullest.
