Dysplay live wind direction/ speed

cristush - Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 2:38 pm

As the wind direction and speed plays an important role in the estimation of the real range on a trip (I've been in situations where the 12% estimation on arrival proved to be totally insufficient just because of the strong head-on winds and I had to reduce speed from 130 to under 100km/h to finally reach the destination with only 2% battery remaining), I would like to see the wind info displayed live on the screen (maybe next to the external temperature), in order to be able to adapt my driving behavior to the road conditions.

The live wind status (and there are quite a few online wind data providers) may also be used by Tesla for the range estimation on a trip, as an additional parameter to the ones already considered by the current algorithm.
