    @elonmusk Some of best classic @Atari games coming as Easter eggs in Tesla V9.0 release in about 4 weeks. Thanks @Atari!

    Anyone at least mildly excited about this in V9.0? I am, and I haven't even taken delivery of my vehicle yet!

    I can appreciate the whimsy of video game easter eggs but I do find it annoying that this is coming out while the sadly behind-the-times infotainment interface stagnates under an inch of dust and is markedly inferior to just about every new car on the market. How about an apple car play easter egg, Tesla?

    Yeah excited to see it but no doubt I’ll play once and leave it.

    I’m an apple user but never used CarPlay but I wonder what the big deal with it is? If your car has satnav, audio connection with phone then what does car play really give you that’s so amazing? Same for android version.

    Not trying to argue I’m just curious why so many people go mad for CarPlay

    Custom EGG. Scroll wheel L/R activates L/R launchers, that's two. You can imagine many other adaptations. Go TM Go!!

    To me, it'd be siri eyes free. Bark commands to your car and have it route through your phone. It's the nicest part of it all. The maps and whatnot, I agree, it doesn't really matter.

    Playing other cars around you while supercharging would be wicked cool. You could send invites that pop up on the other cars displays. It's definitely possible because Tesla knows when you are charging.

    I'm also an iPhone user, but not missing CarPlay in my Tesla. I love the built in Spotify and even more so now it's much less buggy in recent updates!

    Consider yourself lucky to have Spotify. Here in the states we're stuck with Slacker...

    Yeah, I hear ya. Spotify is very good in the Tesla. But only once they stopped it freezing almost every day! Now it's settled down in recent updates and rarely has a problem. It's the only music source I need in the car and I sorely miss it whenever I drive another car! Never even considered CarPlay.
