    When playing music from the radio or via Bluetooth Model S uses its cellular connection to populate the album art section on the center touchscreen. Is there any way to shut this off besides simply changing to NAVI/Energy/Camera mode? The reason for this is because sometimes the "art" is somewhat graphic at times.

    The album art is often incorrect or missing - and there isn't any way to either disable it or correct it.

    You don't have to display the media player on the touchscreen when playing music - so hiding that display is the easiest solution.

    You can also display the current media on the dashboard, so it's only easily visible to the driver.

    I've gotten some hilarious album art for podcasts and audiobooks (Audible and PocketCasts on a Nexus 6p).
