Be realistic….

For me:

My biggest gripe is the Alexa integration, more specifically Amazon music. It’s very buggy.

My air vents behave a bit strange, it appears they do not remain the same position I leave them in when I return to the car-despite the settings on the screen remaining the same.

I also wouldn’t mind a discrete prompt when opening the drivers door to leave the vehicle “running, while locked the keep it cool, inside. Without having to do so from the phone app.

The windows work fine, but the auto-down, auto up isn’t terribly intuitive imho. Wouldn’t mind them being a bit quicker too.

- Better air vent control
- “Light” Regen option (less aggressive than “standard”)
- “Resume” function for ACC/Driver+ after cancelling with the brake pedal
- <Cough> CarPlay/Android Auto <Cough>
- FM Radio dial to do more than just a decoration.
- Play music from USB drive (with a USB-C to -A adapter).
- Iterate toward fixing phantom braking.
- Remember my ACC following distance between drives (ie, don’t always reset back to 3 out of 4).
- Almost forgot, an option for “creep” when your foot’s off the brake.

An option to leave the AC on when getting out of the car, rather than going into the app. This is for the times that I know I’ll be out of the car for a relatively short time.

I don't use Amazon Music, so can't speak to that. But I will say that the sensitivity of Alexa to the "wake word" needs to be turned wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy down. Anything that even vaguely sounds like Alexa (she's been triggered by me saying Lexus, let us, Alex, excess, etc) sets her off, and it's really annoying

Other than that I guess my biggest desires would be:

1) A middle setting for the suspension. Soft is a little too wallow-y for my taste, while Stiff is just plain uncomfortable over anything that isn't smooth road. So something in the middle would be welcome

2) Dog Mode (I know RJ has said it's coming, but you know how that goes)

3) The ability to set the preconditioning for the cabin to a specific temperature rather than what the app says is "Comfortable," and to remotely activate the heated seats/steering wheel (my 2018 XC60 had that function)

4) Make the ACC more usable in bad weather, either by expanding its operating parameters, or giving us the option to use just normal "fixed" cruise control when ACC shuts off. The Seattle area is, well, rainy, and the ACC has a nasty habit of cutting out in medium-to-heavy rain conditions

This next one isn't OTA related, but I wish the Rivian app did more. Again turning to my XC60, the Volvo app let me condition the cabin to a specific temperature, trigger the heated seats/steering wheel, and search for and send a Nav destination to the car before getting in.

Camp mode where the truck will level to gravity. We have a lot of rooftop tent trips coming up and it would be really nice to be able to level it out without extra steps.

I just hope with the next OTA they will FINALLY enable access to the frunk by some method other than a decades-old hood latch.

Oh wait...that was my favorite Mach E complaint. I fixed that one myself by buying an R1T 😄

Mobile app

show gear guard on.

Send directions from phone to truck Route planning over phone.

Control temp not just turn it on.

Interface features

Text messaging without Alexa

Weather report

Battery and Motor Temp.

Sense when at front of truck and detect a gesture to open frunk hands free.

When charging at home select to turn off AC while charging. When in garage and charging I turn off the AC every time as it continues to run. This should be a Geofence feature.

NAV

Routing sometimes takes you off the free way then back on the same on ramp.

Drive modes

Kneel mode Drop down to lowest setting when in park in all modes except off road mode.

This will allow vertically challenged easier access to vehicle.

While in off road mode do not dropdown vehicle when reengaging drive leave it in off road mode. not safe, annoying , and possible Damage to truck. FIX NOW
(and yes I know it asks when you jump back in about remaining in off road every time your in and out of the door. so annoying)

Driver +

in Wide lanes like Carpool lane truck wonders sometimes quickly back and forth.

Areas with recent construction truck will follow ground out or faded lane lines causing it to swerve into other lane. (you better keep your hands on the wheel)

Increase acceleration when truck comes to a slow or complete stop then back to speed when in traffic. Currently allow large gap to form.

Camp Speaker

Mobile app control light and color of lantern.

Sync Audio from Rivian to Camp Speaker when pulling out camp Speaker from docking station. Then seamlessly move control over phone. I want same song I’m listening to, to be playing on camp speaker when I pull it out.

Allow only the music to come through speaker not phone notice sounds

Work on Camp speaker charging sometimes I have to pull it out and plug it back in to get it to charge.

Show the distance indicators when using ACC w/o Highway assist.

Some way to easily drop the vehicle when going into park (like auto initiate low setting with the warning)

Agree on auto leveling as well.

Isn't that a limitation of bluetooth? Every bluetooth speaker I've used plays phone sounds if my phone is unlocked, even my car.
