I just completed my first out of town trip in my Model S which was delivered 4/2/2014. While the navigation system works pretty well there are features which I feel are missing. I would be interested if anyone has found a way to manually drop a point that could then be designated as a destination. For instance, if Google doesn't know exactly where you want to go but you can find your destination on the map, there should be a way to use the touchscreen to designate a point and set that point as your destination. I could do this on the system that was in my 2002 Lexus LS430. The same is true of my Garmin Nuvi.
Another missing feature concerns alternate routes. When I wanted to return home from Binghamton, NY to Amherst, NY the nav system routed me on secondary roads to Rochester and then onto the interstate. We preferred using limited access roads the whole way. Most systems I have seen will offer, "Shortest" or, "Fastest", or, "Alternate" route choices. Even Google maps offers multiple route options. I need these features in my Model S navigation system! Maybe in Version 6.0? Please!
