    I'm not besmirching my beloved Tesla, but it's starting to feel like the incredible potential of that massive touchscreen is being ignored. No iPod integration. No shuffle. Wonky album artwork. No Waze. No third-party apps or new Tesla apps. I'm not saying that Tesla has to adopt Apple's CarPlay or Android Auto, but nearly every other car maker has.... qqqqq.jpg

    I agree, it is a little sad to not see a nice big red T on either of those list. A while back I emailed [email protected] and the reply I got was this:

    "Thank you for contacting Tesla Motors Support in regards to your request to add Apple Carplay. I have added a Feature Request on your behalf to implement Apply CarPlay. The more request we get for an item makes it visible for the appropriate teams. We greatly appreciate your feedback and please feel free to reach out to us anytime via email or 1-877-79-TESLA."

    So, if you want it, the more voices they hear will help.

    I sent an email when Carplay first come out.

    If you want Carplay or Andrioid Auto (or both), PLEASE let Tesla Know.

    I've emailed ownership before but just tweeted this as well:
    Twitter / SteveW25561: @elonmusk @TeslaMotors Its ...

    Tweet:
    @elonmusk @TeslaMotors It's a shame Model S is not among the cars that support #CarPlay or #AndroidAuto. Don't squander the touchscreen!

    If you use twitter retweet or tweet something similar. I'm hoping more public request for this will help.
