How to create a Driver Profile on Model 3

When you first adjust the driver’s seat, steering wheel, or
driver’s side mirror, the touchscreen prompts you to
create a driver profile to save these adjustments.
Your profile also saves some of the preferences you make
using the touchscreen’s Controls window.

To add a new driver profile, touch the
driver profile icon
at the top of the touchscreen. Then touch
Add New Driver,
type the driver’s name and touch Create Profile.

Follow the onscreen instructions to save the seating
position to the driver profile. You can also check
the Use Easy Entry checkbox if you want
to save (or use existing) Easy Entry
settings in which the driver’s seat and the steering
wheel are automatically adjusted to make it easy to
enter and exit Model 3.

If you change the position of the steering wheel, driver’s
seat, or driver’s side mirror after you have saved or
chosen a driver profile, the touchscreen prompts you to
save the new position or restore the previously saved
position (other settings are automatically saved). To
change a setting without saving or restoring, just ignore
the prompt.

To adjust Model 3 based on a driver’s profile, touch the
driver profile icon and choose the driver name. The
saved adjustments are automatically made.

NOTE: Valet mode is a built-in driver profile used to limit
speed and restrict access to some Model 3 features.

NOTE: To stop automatic adjustments that are in
process based on a driver’s profile, touch Stop on the
Driver Profile dropdown menu. Automatic adjustments
also stop if you manually adjust a seat, mirror or the
steering wheel.

Easy Entry
You can define an Easy Entry setting that moves the
steering wheel and driver’s seat to make it easy to enter
and exit Model 3. Any driver can use the Easy Entry
setting by associating it with their driver’s profile. When
the Easy Entry setting is associated with a driver’s
profile, the steering wheel and driver’s seat
automatically adjust when the park gear is engaged and
the driver’s seat belt is unbuckled, allowing an easy exit
from the vehicle. When returning to the vehicle and
stepping on the brake pedal, settings automatically
adjust back to the settings used by the most recent
driver profile (or based on the key if it’s linked to a driver

To use Easy Entry with a driver profile, ensure the Use
Easy Entry box is checked.

WARNING: Never use Easy Entry to move the
driver’s seat to the full rearward position when a
child safety seat is installed on a rear seat located
behind the driver’s seat. With reduced clearance,
the movement of the seat may impact a child’s
legs, cause injury, or dislodge the seat.

Restoring a Driver’s Profile

To adjust Model 3 based on a driver’s profile, touch the
driver profile icon on the touchscreen’s status bar. Then
choose the driver and Model 3 is adjusted based on the
settings that have been saved to the chosen driver profile.

Saved Settings

A subset of the settings that you choose from the Controls
window to customize your Model 3 are also saved to your
driver’s profile. The settings that are associated with driver
profiles may vary depending on the version of software
currently installed on your Model 3.
