With the latest over-the-air update, Tesla has rolled out a couple of very useful features, some we’re surprised took automakers […]
The first is Dog Mode: This feature uses automatic sensors to maintain a comfortable temperature for pets inside the vehicle when you have to run errands, such as inside a grocery store, while also displaying a message in giant letters to passers-by who might become concerned for pets left in the car.
The message will tell anyone looking inside the car that the owner will return soon and display interior temperature. This feature can be activated via the climate control menu, simply by pressing a button labeled «Dog» within the Keep Climate On option.
The second feature is Sentry Mode: This will activate exterior cameras if it detects people near the vehicle and will display a message on the central screen notifying anyone who might be looking inside the vehicle that the car is using cameras to record them.
