I would much prefer that to OnStar, which can track you wherever you go and eavesdrop on you on demand. I'd much rather my car communicate with my home server than some third party. Yet another reason the in-car computer needs to be hacked to run Linux…

User-Preference Settings to Turn Off blinking
Since some will not like the blinking lights while charging
or the blinking dome lights, there could easily be user
preference settings to control these (and other) functions:
Charging: Blinking On, On Steady, or Off.
Link Dome Light: On, Off ... and more.
Since these types of things are (or should be) all computer
controlled, and there is a convenient touch screen interface
in every Aptera, many of the features should have settings
that the user can modify to suit the user's preferences.
1. how the Navigation voice is handled,
2. when recharging is done in the 1h,
3. how and when regenerative braking is handled,
4. daytime running light intensity (or Off),
5. headlights auto-on at sundown,
6. turn on car heater from 6:45 AM and off at 7:05 AM
(before leaving for work at 7:00 AM),
7. handling of the seatbelt warning,
8. use of Climate Control during Parking,
9. Low-battery warning level, type of warning,
10. how the RFID is handled and what it unlocks,
11. user PIN to put the car in motion,
12. Valet mode activation and distance allowed,
13. Service mode options,
14. how much "Black Box" data to accumulate,
15. GPS track clearing code,
Other ideas for User-Preference Settings?
