App Displays the Vehicle's Route
When a destination is entered in the vehicle's navigation system, the Tesla app will now display the same route path that is displayed in the vehicle's navigation system.
Before this update, the app would display the driver's destination, the estimated battery at arrival, and the estimated time of arrival (ETA), but the map would only display the vehicle's current location and destination.
Tesla has added a new app called 'Manual.' The app is included alongside the other apps in the vehicle and provides a quick way to get to the owner's manual and introduces a 'Get to Know Your Tesla' section.
The new interactive section aims to answer commonly asked questions. Some tips also contain an action. For example, in the how to open the glove box section there's a button that lets you open the glove box directly.
While the vehicle is in reverse, the reverse camera will now remain on the screen at all times.

The new Model S and Model X will now display a visualization of the vehicle on the center screen. Similarly to the Model 3 and Model Y, this gives owners easy access to open the frunk and trunk, as well as lock or unlock the vehicle.
This prevents owners from having to go to Controls every time they need to open the frunk/trunk from inside the vehicle.
The visualization goes away once you tap any other area of the screen.
