Now people have had some time with their new cars, I thought it might be good to add a list of future updates we as Polestar Owners would like to see. As always I'll try and keep this updated.

I'm going to break this down into three sections. Google Apps - I know Polestar has no direct control on this, but the list might be seen or forwarded to the right people. Polestar 2 OTA Updates - Anything that could be added by a software update, and Future Models Requests - Physical things that can't be changed on this model, but maybe make it into the next one.

In addition please do not list anything already on the Roadmap here: Pure progressive performance | Polestar

Google Apps we would like to see added.
  • Waze
  • Google News or a news apps.
  • A Better Route Planner
  • Zap-Map
  • TomTom
  • Netflix's
  • YouTube
  • Disney+
  • Amazon Prime
  • Amazon Music
  • Audible
  • Qobuz
  • Coyotte
  • Google Map Updates
    • Add a Satellite Viewing Option.
    • Make storing addresses easier.
    • Add option for multiple recharge stops en-route.
    • Map Filter for Charging Stations with a Save mode - kWs, Exclusive, Non & Preferred Networks, permanently show them option, etc..
    • Always display current traffic levels, even when no planned route is showing.

Polestar OTA Updates
  • Show charging on AC/DC as kW! - Let us have the option of MPH or kWh info for charging.
  • A screen that shows charging curves, current charge rate, etc.. plus reason for the charge being slow ... i.e. Low Temperature / Battery nearly full, etc..
  • A "Dog Mode" - A way to keep the AC going while the car is locked, with the Display showing it's in "Dog Mode".
  • A "Campsite Mode" - A way to keep the HVAC going while the driver seat is unoccupied.
  • Battery preconditioning - A feature you can turn on before leaving on a Journey, or before stopping at a Rapid 150kW Charger to maximise charge speeds.
  • Audio balance controls (left / right / front / back).
  • Full Audio controls (equalizer, fade, balance, speed sensitive volume on/off, location, etc.)
  • Independent control of the screen/dash display brightness and the accent lighting (currently seems yoked; unclear if can be unyoked).
  • Add option to prioritise FM or DAB when using voice to request station.
  • Add option to retune all radio stations.
  • OTA onboard manual updates.
  • OTA release notes for updates as applied.
  • Error messages logged onboard and recallable as option on car status screen. i.e. A way to send Polestar our error message log(s).
  • Redesign the driver performance screen to show more relevant information. i.e. Actual Usage in kW.
  • Add option to show current usage as miles per kWh or kWh/100 in driver display screen
  • Sport Mode - Where the accelerator peddle is more responsive (especially early) and keeps ESC turned OFF / Change Drivers Screen to more sporty mode.
  • Eco Mode - Where AC is limited (like the i-Pace), all power to USB's are turned off, max acceleration & speed limited, etc... to maximise range.
  • Have an option to use the steering wheel up/down buttons to adjust Regenerative Braking setting.
  • An Auditable Alarm you left your phone in the wireless charger.
  • Android Auto
  • Adding a phone list option to scroll through with missed and placed calls.
  • Operating, scrolling and entering the main console via the buttons on the steering wheel.
  • An option to deactivate the Charging Cable Release button next to the socket.
  • Your Spec Polestar (colour, wheels, P-Pack) is reflected in the infotainment screen (or at least an option to custom the car car/spec on display).
  • The ability to separately adjust the brightness on the main screen and drivers display.
  • To be able to change the "Parked PreHeating/Cooling" temperature!
  • Improvements to the Pilot Assist, especially the Lane Guidance - better positioning in the middle of the lane, and less aggressive with smoother transitions where it's possible.
  • Option On/Off for the car to automatically stop on a Red Parking Sensor - maybe an override on the drivers screen.
  • TPMS: show air pressure status for each tire on the infotainment system.
  • Make volume modulation with speed less abrupt - right now it's a step-wise change in volume past certain speeds. If that could be made more gradual, or turned off, that would be less jarring
  • Noise Cancelling Feature to dull the tyre noise in the cabin.
  • Shortcut system on the infotainment. It's five touches just to get to the equaliser for example. Or at least a shortcut to the equaliser - maybe touch the volume bar if it's on screen or something.
  • Volume up on the steering wheel should do the same as hitting play if the system isn't already playing.
  • Pushing left should enable LIM, pushing right should enable ACC/CC. It's bonkers that they've split these two functions out onto two separate buttons but you still need to fiddle around with the touchscreen to change. Also, minimum speed can be set to any speed.
  • Automatic Audio Restart option (on/off) in the settings. So when you get in the car the music starts without an input required.
  • 12V Battery Health Indicator.

App Features (once released)
  • Find my Polestar (a la Apple's Find My... functions)

Future Polestar's (either standard or as an option)
  • Heat Pump.
  • Built in Dash Cam's with a Sentry Mode.
  • Redesign centre console:
    • No piano black - anywhere!
    • Cover the sides flares in squishier/softer plastic/fabric so it's nicer to rest your knee and arm there and to give softer edge on the medial side of the flare where plastic transitions to wood accent
    • Fit in a proper 2nd cup holder (maybe move the DNR to a stalk on the steering wheel?)
  • Redesign side door bins to be bigger a la the XC40
  • Enable battery upgrading when more energy dense (Wh/kg and Wh/L) batteries come out.
  • Enable data transfer via USB ports so audiophiles can stream or pre-load music via a wired connection faster/better than Bluetooth allows, and so we can side-load apps and for file storage
  • A Flatter Drivers Floor
  • Kid friendly option pack with Screens in the back of the front seats, having full access to Google play games & video from youtube/netflix even while driving, for rear seat passengers only.
  • Radio: A better FM radio, current model is very poor quality.

  • 40/60 folding seats controllable from the trunk
  • Digital Display Rear View Mirror

  • Sunroof: offer a power retractable sun shade.
  • Accessories: offer cool lifestyle accessories such as an air compressor, powered cooler, fitted bags or luggage; fitted rechargable flashlight, snow brush/ice scrapper, and umbrella in the trunk or frunk; a tasteful trunk or roof spoiler.

    • Different Material / patterns.

Future Polestar Models / Variants
  • Wagon/Estate version!!! Bonus points if allows jump seats like in my parents' old Volvo wagon!

[App Features (once released)/QUOTE]
And please make a decent app and throw away (purge!!) this one so that nobody can be ashamed anymore. I mean an functional app like the Volvo one on v60 hybrid, with detailed information about thing you would need like speed, battery usage, driving history, an admin for tax purposes (relevant in NL!), find my Volvo, etc., etc. What we have now is absolutely and far below reasonable expectations.

The energy savings from turning off the display are less than negligible.


This is a good idea. I've been asking for a physical "back" button like all android tables/phones have today.


The P2 does not use a battery sled. The battery is setup in a T formation that goes down the tunnel
and across the back seats. It would likely be difficult to narrow the console much.
Thanks for the info. I can still hope future models make better use of this centre console area though right? However good it is to look at... it is really good to look at...

Re. Energy saving yes know, just want to turn it off when not in use. Feels like that minimalism and ethos fits with the car.

I agree a back button would be really good, every other device has one so it just feels wrong! I admit to reaching for that non-existence more than once.

Thanks

Future models are slated for a different platform that will not likely use the tunnel setup. The P2 is actually sitting on an old ICE platform.

Re. Energy saving yes know, just want to turn it off when not in use. Feels like that minimalism and ethos fits with the car.
There is a cleaning mode somewhere in the settings if you want to turn the panel off.

I agree a back button would be really good, every other device has one so it just feels wrong! I admit to reaching for that non-existence more than once.
This is particularly annoying because different apps/functions have their back button in different locations. That causes you to have to look all over the screen while driving. A physical back button would be even better than what your phone has because you could hold your hand on it and keep clicking until the screen you wanted popped back up. We can only hope :)

Hi there here in New Jersey United States.

I can tell you that the latest update 2431 my polestar 2 has a lot of improvements.

For one my range is improved dramatically. The range is more accurate. I've noticed a bunch of other little subtle changes that are improvements. For instance my digital key works perfect now. Before this update it was hit or miss

I would only like three modes over the air.
1. As indicated above a dog mode. Although my dog does not get in this car yet it would be nice to have if she does at some point.

2. Car wash mode. Shut off all external sensors while going to the car wash. Drives me crazy. The thing beeps and beeps and beeps like someone's stabbing it from the outside lol.

3. Lastly a pure sport mode. This would give you the most amount of power 0 to 60 and what I've heard they can take it down to about 3 to 3 and 1/2 seconds.

We fully understand this would lose battery range. But this would give us a rebuttal for all the Tesla 3 performance owners.

Being one who spent over 70,000 for this car with leather and performance package I don't feel as if the regular pole star should get this update. If you shelled out for the performance pack you certainly should be entitled to it.

I have heard there is something like this in the works but we shall see.

All I can say for sure is that the latest update after I took my car in for an external speaker issue... Is moving in the right direction.

I don't believe they're rolling out 2431 over the area yet but this update certainly improves a lot of things.

Despite what the motors are capable of, the half shafts have to be able to handle the added torque. I don't believe the current car does. The special version they showed off in the UK show was beefed up in several ways.

This not being available in the P*2 app, when it is in the Volvo and P*1 app, is really reinforcing that for some reason the P*2 is currently relying entirely on cell data to position itself. That the P*2 (and the AAOS Volvos) have some sort of issue where AAOS is not playing nice with the onboard satellite antenna hardware, both for GPS and SiriusXM radio.

Hi (first post so apologies if I'm breaking protocol), I'd like to see What3Words added to the app list. This is a geo-locater used by all emergency services (in the UK at least) because it provide location in a 3m x 3m grid. If you breakdown or have another emergency it directs emergency services / breakdown right to you. I also use it for pretty much every trip due to its accuracy. Once you have your location then it allows you to share it with your preferred navigation app (e.g. google maps or waves).

What3Words is ideal for this (request just put in for this to be added). Until then install it on your phone and when you park, open the app and it will tell you exactly where you are to a 3m range (10ft) and you can save it. When you come to leave after several hours of disney fun or shopping at the mega-mall then you just open the app, click on the search box and it'll drop down your saved locations. Click on the location and it will take you directly to your vehicle.

Hi (first post so apologies if I'm breaking protocol)
All good, welcome to the forum!
This is a geo-locater used by all emergency services (in the UK at least) because it provide location in a 3m x 3m grid.
The eCall system (mandatory since 2018 in the EU) takes care of this: When you call emergency services through the SOS button or when the car detects a crash (IIRC, when an airbag deploys), your GPS position is automatically transmitted.
when you park, open the app and it will tell you exactly where you are to a 3m range (10ft) and you can save it.
You can do this with Google Maps on your phone already (Hit the blue spot and 'Save' your current location) Edit: I wish PS would automatically show the car's position in the app like Audi did.

All good, welcome to the forum!

I did not know that. Thanks. (I live in a cave and don't get out much).

If you're on iOS, just open Apple Maps and 'parked car' will be right there waiting for you. It notes the location when you disconnect from the bluetooth.

Echo the request for Netflix or some other streaming service during charging. Also would like to have the ability to shut the screen and all other lighting off during charging (like sitting in a parked ICE vehicle), shut the screen off during driving (but still get map navigation and music like a phone does), sunglasses holder would be swell (but I can just use the little pockets on the side of the huge center hump!),

Homelink for us living in Europe in YM22!!
But we have homelink? You can program the three buttons on the mirror to control your garage doors and such? Or is homelink still something else?

You can switch off the center screen by putting it in cleaning mode with the home button.

I think they announced that they're dropping Homelink from the 2022s. (chip shortage issue, maybe?)

Eh??? Really? Just looked at Apple Maps and can't see it (or any option to activate it)
Assuming your phone is already Bluetooth-paired with your car to be able to play audio. There’s this in Settings → Maps:
