    For the love of farting unicorns, did they finally please fix the media player?

    I really hope they have fixed the media player. That's the only aspect of our car that I wish worked as well as other cars we have owned and this is the first thing I'm going to check when we receive the update.

    Not being able to have 2 “apps” on the screen is going to completely ruin it for me. I routinely have the rear view camera as the top app and the media player as the bottom. I use the rear view camera as part of my driving (checking for blind spots along with the side view mirrors). Why would they have the navigation as always present in the background?

    Agreed. Choices are good and here Tesla is making the choice for us. Not good.

    Agreed. Also, I noticed Climate control doesn't say "AUTO", I hope it still indicates when set to manual. I sometimes set to to recirc but it's a good reminder to set it back when I see "MANUAL" on the screen.

    Really hope this isn't final. Not really liking the new interface. Hope Tesla is reading these boards and websites. Seems like many are not feeling it.

    No split screen apps? Seems like a negative to me

    As I said earlier 9.0 is going to be just UI change mostly and all new features will come in 9.1 :)

    I think they're probably going to have 2 apps visible at one time as per the shot of the browser window inset into the nav screen. Whether it is then possible to position this inset screen at the top we'll have to wait and see. Hopefully someone will leak a screenshot of the 'Display' tab options soon.

    I sure hope they test the heck out of it on AP1 and older CPU so it wouldn't slow the heck out of it.

    I’m sure you’ll have the option to do so under a setting selection.

    I don’t think the model 3 can. I wouldn’t be so sure.

    This is where the IC widgets might prove to be valuable. If you want the camera on all the time you can at least dedicate an IC widget to the media player...

    Not sure I like the small windows popping up inside the main window with Navigation always in the background. :cool:
    Sounds like this could be a cost-cutting move by Tesla to maintain only 1 software platform for all models going forward.

    How will this impact TeslaWaze users who want to see a large image on the main window? Tesla Traffic Incidents and Information

    For model S and X it shouldn't be changed to be cost cutting, it should be changed to be better since it's the top tier premium car! :mad:

    Not sure cost cutting is the right terminology here. This is more like streamlining their development efforts, which I totally get and understand, I just don't like the direction it's pushing us.

    Yeah I really hope there would still be a way to have the split screen. So far I’m not a fan of the UI changes

    Really?! You don't think that the "drive the nav" option might be good too?

    Loss of constant back up camera screen is a big loss. Very stupid move. I'm pissed. **** Atari games. Everyone knows JRPG or nothing.
