    Has anyone designed a specific homepage / portal for the model S with all the links we might want at our fingertips while driving?

    I'm thinking it should have links to:

    Dining:
    Open Table
    Yelp
    Local Eats

    Charging / Trip Planner:
    Plugshare.com
    US Campgrounds
    Next Exit
    WiFi finder
    Airport pickup guides / flight tracker
    Hotel Reservations
    Family Games to play on the road
    Parenting Guides for trips

    Weather:
    Overlay maps
    Forecasts

    Music:
    FM radio station finder
    Slacker / Pandora, etc.
    WunderRadio
    5-0 Police scanners
    NPR stations

    Note Taking / Reminders
    Remember the milk
    Evernote
    Good Reader
    Dropbox

    Social Media:
    Facebook Tesla Page
    Twitter with special tweets highlighted
    Tesla Motors Club
    Find Friends App
    SMS messaging

    Reference / Information
    Google
    Wikipedia
    Wolfram Alpha
    Model S manuals
    Online Calculators

    News:
    US News
    World News
    Financial News


    Ideally, the portal would redraw itself to fit half screen or full screen and it would be customizable for the interior color of car.

    If this hasn't already been done and there is enough interest, I might create the page myself.

    This sounds wonderful, but my level of interest is, unfortunately, inverse to my competence to help. So, all I can do is cheer you on.

    Teslamods.com is a hobby project for me. I could add a lot of those links but a lot of the items you are requesting are already there.

    That's a great start Walla2. Yes, if you could add those links, it would really complete the site.

    Please, please tell me you don't use the browser while driving...

    I guess I should have written while out driving. I'm usually too busy texting, shaving and eating to mess with a web browser. I might have to leave that up to my passengers.
