    Has anyone found a way to use a keyboard other than the screen keyboard for the Tesla web browser? A small BT keyboard would be a good solution to the poor (and ergonomically poor) screen keyboard provided with the browser.

    Bluetooth devices are mapped to something called profiles in the Bluetooth standard. I strongly doubt there is a Bluetooth keyboard profile in the Tesla software stack.

    I thought so as well, but didn’t think it would hurt to ask the larger community.

    back up to top - has anyone tried a USB keyboard? what about a mouse?

    they tried it with the S here, but looks like it was eventually disabled.

    makes me wonder if the keyboards were disabled to prevent hacking/finding hidden areas, etc.
