The long-rumored “cloud profiles” are finally arriving in Tesla update 2022.24. Tesla is officially calling the feature ‘Tesla Profiles.’ With this latest update, you’ll be given the option to tie your driver profile to your Tesla account.
If you decide to connect your profile to your Tesla account some of your vehicle’s settings will be able to travel with you from one Tesla to another. Settings such as mirror, seat and wheel positions will be synced across other supported vehicles. So if you’re lucky enough to have multiple Teslas in your household and adjust your seat in one vehicle, then the setting will automatically be synced to the other vehicle.
Once your Tesla account is linked to a car profile, that car’s profile will automatically appear in any other Teslas under your account. These vehicles could be rentals or owned by you. As long as they show up in your Tesla app then your car profile will become available on that vehicle.
Having your car profile sync to multiple vehicles will be especially useful when renting a Tesla. It’ll provide a consistent experience across vehicles and it’ll save you time from having to adjust preferences such as your seat, mirrors, music preferences, and more.
This could be important for certain settings such as ‘Stopping Mode’. When you first get in the car, you may expect it to behave like your own Tesla and if the Stopping Mode is set to something unexpected, like roll, it could lead to confusion.
If you rent a Tesla or use one as a loaner, it’ll feel almost magical being able to get in it and have it automatically adjust to you. Tesla Profiles will go beyond just seat adjustments. It’ll also include some vehicle settings, such as Autopilot, driving preferences, and climate control settings.
According to Tesla’s release notes, navigation, media and data sharing preferences will also be tied to your Tesla account and sync over to other vehicles. Synced settings will also include navigation favorites and recent destinations.
You’ll be able to distinguish whether you’re using a cloud profile or a local profile in your vehicle because Tesla Profiles will now include your profile photo from your Tesla app instead of the standard person silhouette. Your profile photo will appear next to your driver’s profile name.
Tesla’s release notes for this feature state:
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. This feature has been in the making for a while, with Elon first mentioning that Tesla would be moving info and settings to the cloud in August 2017. Tesla’s 2022.24 update also includes improvements to the Blind Spot Camera feature.
