Browser Auto-refresh?

Does the web browser support auto-refreshing or auto-reloading of webpages? Understanding that the browser doesn't support videos, the next best thing would be to follow sports with an auto-refreshing web page.

Browser is not optimized to load webpages or video. Mostly designed for navigation and audio.

Don't believe they want people surfing the web or following sports while driving down the highway, especially on autopilot.

I think OP is referring to the browser and not the MCU itself. The browser, slow as it is, does serve an important function in that it allows us to access content and functions that are not built into the car with the big 17” screen instead of fiddling with the phone. Examples include wind, Waze, weather radar, plug share etc...

I have not had much success with the browser working with an auto-refresh page (like ESPN sports for real-time scores / gamecast). It may have been due to me trying it on a feature-rich page or it may have been a limitation of the browser, but I was lucky if I got 1 or 2 auto-refreshes before it crapped out completely and I had to refresh on my own. Even then I wasn't guaranteed it would actually work.
