      I read that operating instructions will be via videos that owners can view before taking delivery.

      Ugh. I hate watching videos for info.
      They better have something I can read and refer to later.

        I suspect we'll get both ultimately. In one test drive the glove box was opened and I saw what looked to be a manual.

          Seems like a searchable .PDF we could read on the screen would be a good idea.

            I would guess that it's pre-loaded and screen access only. The get acquainted videos may also be accessed via screen too. Would be nice if you export it though through the USB port.

            There are tons of videos about Model S on the Tesla site and I anticipate we will see videos on Model 3 before volume deliveries begin.

            There will be quick start videos to watch prior to delivery. But the entire manual will be accessible from the vehicle display or downloaded in pdf

                Looks like someone on Reddit had access to a part of the manual and posted info on the phone charging "dock"

                  So probably a good idea to order some 1 foot USB cables with 90° angle connectors then.

                    That screenshot was pulled from the Tesla.com Model 3 shop. They were selling $14 phone charging cables and that screenshot was included with that item.

                      My Model S came with a variety of short USB cords for the dock (And inserts for various phones). I assume Model 3 will also. I'd wait until you get the car before buying cords.
