Multiple Screen Layouts
This past week Tesla released a major software update that introduced an updated UI among other features. The UI is simplified, includes a larger visualization area for Model 3 and Y and smaller app/music panels. It also introduces smaller fonts for the speedometer and other areas.
In recent beta versions we have also seen an option to increase the car visualizations even further and in the early Cybertruck prototypes we saw a UI that was nearly 100% car visualizations with no map on the screen whatsoever, so it's clear Tesla is moving toward larger car and surroundings visualizations as they come closer to achieving full self-driving where this information may be more important than a map.
However when this holiday update hit the masses this past week, we started seeing instant feedback that the visualization area was too large and fonts were too small, especially on Model S and Xs.
Elon Musk has now tweeted that they will be offering multiple display options so that you can pick the size of the car visualizations and the apps to the right of them on the Model 3/Y. We may even be given the option to pick the full screen visualizations as seen on the Cybertruck.
We imagine that Tesla will also offer dynamic text sizing so that folks who prefer different size text can change them across the whole interface.
