For those that placed a FS order: Does the Foundation Series CT come with Homelink?

Hopefully a simple install like they did with other Tesla. My kids Y was done by mobile and it was fast. This is also actually in the 'Service Mode' menu (just saw vid on Tesla website the other day).

Homelink was a separate order and install add-on on the Model Y (kids '22). Image and URL below.

Just saw in this video MyQ on the CT screen.

Yea I think myq is probably cheaper for them. So I wouldn't be surprised to see no home link.

Add it to the subscriptions list lol

My grandfather got a new car every two years. When power windows came out, he said something like "It will be a long time before I can't crank up my own window." Of course, the next car he bought had power windows. Now it is like: "What do you mean I have to push a button to open my garage door? The car knows I'm in my driveway. Why doesn't it open automatically?" When tech works, it is really great.

Hence why on at least the 3/Y they make it an HW add-on.
Seems like they went cheap on the CT like the 3/Y with things like no driver's display. :cry:
I hope they allow for a HomeLink add-on.

$350 USD

I don't call "no driver's display" being cheaper, it's better.
I can never see the speedometer in other vehicles dash, because the steering wheel is in the way for me. I've got a GPS that I dash mounted in many cars and rentals, just so I could see the speed.
I have NEVER missed the driver's display in my 3 or my Y.

But I also hope for Homelink, it's awesome.

I don't have any trouble at all seeing my full drivers display in my Model X thru the steering wheel. I think this is true for many people and those that have displays in ICE cars for decades as well as virtually all competing EV cars. There is a reason for this ... statistically a larger number of people like them.

To each their own I guess. Tesla still puts them in the X and S. They were in some early examples of the CT.

There are TON of driver displays/clusters for the 3 & Y by 3rd party. Probably over 8 companies.

I just can't how can you see the full display without moving your head into somewhat awkward positions at times.

And in counterpoint to
statistically a larger number of people like them.
There's a huge number of people that don't know there are options.
And I'd say that the majority of Model 3 and Model Y owners are happy with their configuration. I've heard of very few that complain.

That is very interesting and curious. A minute ago, I just went out to my X to take this picture right from my eyes viewing angle. This is exactly what I see. I literally see the whole thing in my normal driving. I simply adjusted my steering wheel up/down and forward/backward long ago. It is at a very comfortable height for me for road trips and around town driving. You can also see it doesn't block my view out front as the top of the steering wheel is the end point of the dash that I see. It was very ergonomically well-engineered. I'm ~5'11".

I wouldn't mind it either way tbh. My boss said he has on older model S and you can do a lot on the driver display. But when he test drove a new one they had nerfed the driver display and it barely does anything. So he actually prefers the Y now.
