    The other half was doing a bit of shopping, i decided to wait in the car and watch some youtube video...
    Most of the video where from spain on the front page. I used the browser to check the public ip address i was receiving and it was based in spain... LOL anyone else getting ip addresses from another country :> probably wouldn't have noticed if i didn't go to youtube.

    I've had a Dutch IP on my Model S before.

    Yeah, Tesla uses a roaming SIM, you’ll get IPs from various European countries depending on the provider they choose at the time.

    Just tether to your phone using its hotspot to give yourself a UK IP address. This will also allow you to use iPlayer and other compatible geofenced webplayers compatible with Tesla's browser.

    Any idea how often the IP addresses change?

    As I shouldn't have to tether the phone when I have data through the car to watch location specific content.

    Really liking the car, just sone little things.. lol

    Thanks

    Ah. Interesting. I was wondering about this. Normally when I look at the BBC News website I get the UK version of the site (no advertising) but in my Model 3 I get the international version of the site.

    How does one use the browser to get the car's IP address?
