    New here and close to pulling the trigger on my Model S. Wondering what happened to 3rd party apps for the tesla, especially something like waze? Is this dead in the water? I remember Elon talking about it, but it seems like nothing has happened on this front.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    I suspect it's on the end of the list. Way too many other items are consuming the programmers' time.

    I meant 3rd party apps on the Tesla, not on an iPhone.

    @jerry33 said it well.

    Creating an industrial strength API especially in today's world of security crises is a major task. Few positive headlines short term and much increased risk. Think of the legal issues fighting over whether a third party app contributed to an accident and how much.

    Much as I'd love to see the innovation released by an API, I'd be surprised if we see one before Model 3.
