Tesla, the American multinational automotive and clean energy company, recently launched its ‘Profiles’ for synchronized settings across supported vehicles with its Software Update 2022.24.5, according to Teslarati.
A version of Software Update 2022.24 in late July was reported to release the “Tesla Profiles” feature meant to enable cars with multiple drivers to automatically adjust features based on the driver, which is relevant to rental vehicles or those utilized in car-sharing such as Turo.
On the other hand, Not A Tesla App’s article claimed that Tesla was already working on Cloud-based profiles. In retrospect, this feature was first mentioned by CEO Elon Musk in August 2017, and it has been five years now since he started talking about it, “We are going to move all info and settings to the “cloud” (aka server) so any Tesla you drive in the world automatically adjusts to you,” he said.
Tesla described the feature:
“If you own multiple Teslas, use a loaner or rent a Tesla, you will then be able to keep your profile settings the same across your vehicles. When you change a setting, it’ll automatically be carried over to your other vehicles.”
Now, the feature has finally landed in vehicles via the 2022.24.5 Software Update, according to @DirtyTesLa on Twitter.
Tesla Profiles’ Release Notes specified:
“Keep your settings and preferences synchronized across all supported vehicles using your Tesla account, including:
-Mirror, seating, and steering wheel adjustments
-Autopilot, driving, and climate control preferences
-Navigation, media, and data sharing preferences
You can set up your Tesla Profile from Driver Profile settings, and change your profile picture from the Tesla Mobile app.”
Tesla’s cloud-based profiles will address the hassle of transitioning to a new vehicle, especially for those who regularly rent Teslas or Uber-drive a different vehicle. With this new software update, the vehicles will automatically adjust features based on the driver, offering an excellent and convenient driving experience.
