Tesla’s Musk confirms Navigation Waypoints for custom roadtrips

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has finally buckled to the peer pressure of his fans and confirmed that the electric automaker would allow custom navigation waypoints on the GPS. The addition of this feature will enable drivers to control the route they take to their destination, instead of having only the most efficient one given to them by their vehicle.

After repeated requests from owners, Musk finally succumbed and stated, “Fine, we’ll do it already,” in a Tweet to his nearly 39 million Twitter followers.

For some time now, Tesla fans have requested the custom waypoints feature from Elon Musk. The request has been repeatedly denied over the years because the GPS functionality within Tesla’s cars is already designed to choose the most efficient route for drivers.

One example of Musk’s bluntness on the subject came just a day after Christmas in 2019 when Tesla Owners

WATCH NOW: AUTO RACING: Racing veteran Tuell still helping mold young drivers in the sport | Sport

“The development of the karts has progressed, but I don’t think the racers have,” Tuell said. “Some of these kids need to practice and have someone teach them the basics before getting on the track.

“My kids would practice up to 500 laps during the week before every race. That’s the only way you can learn.”

Brent Tuell is Phil’s son and the father of eight-year-old Konner and 11-year Karston. Using now defunct karting tracks such as the quarter-mile clay oval at Beechnut Raceway in Blountville as a proving ground, Brent earned over 100 wins in the grassroots sport.

“I started racing at age 5 and kept racing until I was 17,” Brent said. “It was fun.”

Brent is now content to watch his young sons pay their dues at tracks such as Kingsport Miniway and the historic Ashway Speedway in Strawberry Plains, Tennessee.

“I get nervous at times, but

Family Road Trip
Few things are better than a road trip, but a lack of planning and car maintenance could end the fun prematurely. Getty

Planning a road trip should be an enjoyable process, however, choosing destinations, booking hotels, planning activities can easily overwhelm even the most organized traveler. But with a little forethought, the results can be epic. That’s especially true during a global pandemic when America’s roadways are the most popular means of travel.

According to a survey conducted by Chevrolet and research firm Harris Poll, 80% of those polled said that going on a road trip has been one of their happiest moments since March. Forty-one percent said they road-tripped to a place they’ve never been before, which underlines an important element that often is left out of the planning process: preparing the family vehicle.

Even the most detailed travel itinerary won’t save a vehicle from a lack of routine

National Transportation Safety Board releases final report on Dale Earnhardt Jr. plane crash

ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. — The National Transportation Safety Board released its final report Wednesday regarding the Dale Earnhardt Jr. plane crash, which occurred August 15, 2019, at Elizabethton Municipal Airport.

According to the NTSB, the preflight, departure, and cruise portions of the flight were uneventful. However, during the initial approach, the flight crew discussed having some difficulty visually acquiring the airport. The crew also discussed traffic in the area and were maneuvering around clouds which may have increased the pilots’ workload.

The NTSB added the crew also made several comments about the airplane flying too fast and allowed the airspeed to increase well above the reference speed for the approach. About 1 minute and 52 seconds before landing, the pilot pulled back the throttles to idle where they remained for the rest of the approach. The pilot also partially extended the speedbrakes when the plane was 500 feet above ground level,

Bike Norfolk opens city’s first single-track mountain bike trail

NORFOLK, Va. – Mountain bikers in Norfolk now have a new place to spin their wheels.

On Saturday morning Bike Norfolk, in partnership with the City of Norfolk, volunteers and local business sponsors, opened the city’s first single-track mountain bike trail at Northside Park.

The twists and turns span over two miles, creating a safe haven of sorts for those who love the fast-moving sport.

Mike Merritt, the communications director for Bike Norfolk, said the idea has been in the works for about three years.

“Norfolk has several acres of unused trails that we saw as an opportunity to build single-track mountain bike trails,” he said. “Like all projects, you know, there’s a seed of thoughts and they keep growing and growing until you actually realize it’s a possibility to make it a reality.”

If you stop by the trailhead you will find a map of the three trails: two

A Custom Garage Doubling as Showroom for Your Jaguars Is What You Need

Much ink has been spent, both of the real kind and virtual, on describing the very special relationship between man and his car. Building a special, custom garage for your most prized machines is, as such, not that strange.

Neither is there anything to feel ashamed about in wanting to show off. A couple from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, wanted to show their beauties to the world, so they commissioned architects to build them a custom garage that would double as a showroom.

Their beauties are a Jaguar XJS convertible and a Jaguar XJ (X358), and their firm of choice was Bureau Fraai from Amsterdam (story via Robb Report). The work was completed this year, and as the photos in the gallery show, it’s way more tasteful than you were probably led to believe.

The idea for the garage was to build a safe storage space for the two vehicles inside
