@emperor I am an ignoramus about Easter Eggs and sound to 11. Please have mercy on me and explain, briefly, what this is about.
Sure on the Model S and X, the max volume is 11, instead of 10. This is a reference to Spinal Tap, and the quote "Turn it up to 11" Also there are other easter eggs, and they just are small funny features

Spinal Tap? Sorry, I don't get it, I haven't had one of those since they did a colonoscopy on me! I don't know what they dialed it up to because I was out cold. All I know is that the Doc said afterward he had never seen the like. :confused:

Yup, it's confirmed! The Model 3 has an electronic charge port door. If you stop the easter egg video at exactly 0:58, then you will see a faded out button that says "close", and a red circle circling the area of the charge port. Because you can tell he's charging, when he takes the connector out, the "close" button will function. One of the small details you can catch from a completely random video.

As reported on TMC.

https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/neat-model-3-easter-egg-found.105320/

Edit: to add a little more info, I saw the link above when I was getting ready to leave and just wanted to pass the info along. The poster on TMC tried a known Easter egg on the Model S on his Model 3 and it shows a picture of a Model 3 with Elon Musk and a bunch of people who worked hard to bring us all this car. Very cool! :)

Try this: press and hold the T icon at the top of the screen. The one that opens the easter egg page. Hold it for maybe 10 seconds, and then release - when you do a screen will open, asking for a code. That's as far as I've gotten, of course. Anyone know?

Did you try "ILoveNASA" ?

I think that is how they enter into the maintenance functions of the car. Not really sure this is considered an Easter Egg.

In the manual, it mentions that if you enter ‘mars’ as the access code, you get a screen with your car on a map of mars. When I got in my car this morning, it had a little screen like a surprise sort of thing that took me to that screen as well.

That’s already available by tapping in the list of goodies

EDIT: Title should say, "Exchange useless features and easter eggs for other stuff"

Just curious what other people think.

Coming from a car that uses CarPlay (or Android Auto), it seems short-sighted on Tesla's part not to have that or include a function that does the same thing. The reading of received texts or composing texts is a great feature that CarPlay has. The phone calls work better on CarPlay. Being able to run apps from the infotainment screen rather than having to pickup my phone is a great feature as well.

I don't really care about cowbells, the Grateful Dead or being able to draw on the screen of the model 3. I have EAP but have no need for Summon other than saying, "Hey, look at what this car can do!" There may be a time when I'd use it but there's no need for it now and can't think of a situation where I'd use it in the future. At this point I'll probably use it less than a handful of times over the ownership of my Model 3.

Anyhow, I'd much rather Tesla focus on fixing bugs or implementing features that people need as opposed to spending time on the bells and whistles that the majority of people don't care about. Maybe it's just me but it seems wrong for Tesla to continue working on easter eggs (Atari coming soon) when there's still bugs that need to be fixed.
