Tesla’s Next Update Could Include In-Car WiFi and a 360-Degree View

Elon Musk takes Twitter suggestions seriously.

Update Possibilities

Today on Twitter, Elon Musk got into an interesting conversation with some Tesla fans. First, he was asked about the possibility of adding a wireless hotspot:


The idea was popular, and led to an additional request for a 360-degree view:


This function, which is already in development, could allow for a complete 360-degree view while driving. And, as Electrek reports, the idea of the hotspot is not new, but fan popularity might give it more traction.

Next For Tesla

Musk has also been talking about Tesla updates to the Autopilot system that are coming soon.


Originally, Musk’s plan was to have every Tesla fully autonomous by sometime in 2017. Tesla will be conducting a coast to coast test drive this year, during which the human driver is expected not to take over control at all. At TED 2017, Musk confirmed that future Teslas on the road may be as autonomous as the coast to coast test car.

According to Inverse, Musk has already stated that if autonomous driving demands upgrades to the computers in any of the Tesla models, the design should make the process simple. The updates are going to make Teslas even safer, so it’s easy to see why fans are so excited.
