At a Rivian stories event. Wassym Bensaid (VP of Software Development) is here and giving a q&a.

video here:



rivian blog post here:

https://stories.rivian.com/rivian-stories-meetup-venice-hub

Here’s some of the takeaways…take everything with a grain of salt

-dashcam available by end of April (basically the next update)

-bed camera will be enabled for use and available for things like towing. this is planned to be part of a larger “towing update” that will include things like trailer profiles, etc. Eta for that update is summer

-turn signal cameras on driver display in development…eta summer

-navigation improvements are constantly being worked on, looked into multiple integration options including waze but waze doesn’t have an open api.

-video and audio entertainment being worked on. The long pole for video is developing digital rights management in the software. No eta given.

-as more features get added app and ui are getting cluttered so they are going through a re-design.

-apple watch as a key is actively being looked into/tested and is on the roadmap

edit: replied directly to some questions so those are further down the thread. there was a lot more discussed, but i only included stuff that had concrete timelines because most of what ppl ask is on the road map (i did include info about the navigation and entertainment since he provided some interesting context/insight on their respective challenges and why it's taking a minute to bring that to customers).

Hopefully Waze never gets integrated as the official nav. I know some people love Waze. In my experience, while the traffic notifications in Waze is cool, the nav directions randomly suck. I've had Waze do completely inexplicable things on multiple occasions i.e. exit an Interstate and get back on at the next interchange with absolutely no traffic impediments. Route me in a full 10 mile square instead of 1 mile direct. Never had these issues with Apple or Google Maps......

Ok even though I don’t care I’ll just get us there now since we all know it’s coming:

Give us CarPlay or give us death!

This. I'd love to be able to use the upcoming Autel charger if Rivian doesn't have their V2X charger available this year.

And if they have any plans on having the truck request more than 500A like Tesla does and Volvo will be.

not really, he did mention that the driver monitor camera is not being used and eventually future vehicles won't be delivered with the hardware. that being said future models are being planned with a driver monitor in place.
