In late May, Tesla released a software update feature called Navigation Energy Prediction, where “energy prediction for your route has been improved by incorporating forecasted crosswind, headwind, humidity and ambient temperature when using online navigation.”

This was seen in the 2022.16.0.2 software update that started rolling out on May 25.

Now we have one of the first looks at Navigation Energy Prediction in action, shared by @ChargeGoGroup.

As you can see in the image, Tesla navigation is showing the message “strong winds forecasted from the west”, in @ChargeGoGroup’s journey to the Supercharger in Lone Pine, California.

Tesla later detailed the feature on social media, saying “Tesla navigation will now take predicted crosswind, headwind, humidity & temperature into account for calculating battery % on arrival.”

“This is in addition to current factors: predicted speed, HVAC use, elevation changes, current temperature and route/distance,” added the Tesla Twitter account (seemingly tweeted out by Elon Musk it seems using his iPhone).

Have you experienced the Navigation Energy Prediction feature during your road trips yet?
