I’ve always wanted the same thing. Couldn’t think of a valid reason why.

I’d love to be able to tap near the battery to switch between the two.

Agreed, just give us a toggle button to view both if we want. This would be simple for them, someone needs to jump on Twitter and tell Elon. When I someone I mean Trev ;)

I'll try that, It will go something like this, "Report: please add the option to see both miles and percentage for range, oh and please send me a Model X if you don't mind" ;) They will probably turn my Supercharging off for a month as a punishment.

I stick with percentage for the battery gauge. The mileage number shown is just based on the EPA test range and is virtually useless, unless you happen to be driving under the exact conditions used for that test. If I want to know my predicted range I look at the energy graph. I would like the option to show the predicted range from the energy graph next to the battery symbol.

That would help, but it's all piecemeal. Tesla must be crumbling under thousands of similar requests, many of them probably incompatible with each other.
What Tesla should really do, sooner or later, is make the interface configurable by the driver, using a profile to store current configurations -- something one can do for any phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop...
Presumably some parts would not be "negotiable" (e.g., displaying current speed is probably a legal requirement; and reconfiguring the setup for the two sticks on the steering column would probably be a bad idea ;-) but that leaves a lot of room for screen display, thumbwheel action, etc
