    Hey everybody! I wanted to make a new thread here for my project since my old one was trapped under the Model S interface subforum. I have been working on this site on and off for 2 years, basically for personal use, but found a lot of people enjoyed using it in their cars. I helped push HTML5 geolocation support in the browser years ago and now we can all benefit! I am looking for feedback and suggestions! In the mean time, here is a description:

    The site, in its current iteration, gives local weather forecast, localized weather radar, plugshare, waze, and stock price reporting. There is also a clock mode for the homepage and a help screen explaining the product.

    • The forecast page uses the free forecast.io (people behind darksky) api to present weather data and severe weather alerts.
    • The radar page hits the weather underground API to get the animated gif radar image. I only get 500 of these requests a day without upgrading to a 5000/day ($300/mo) or 100k/day ($600/mo) plan. I have only ever peaked at 250/day, so we will have to see how it goes. I have a donation button on the help page for when this time comes.
    • The plugshare page has an iframe pointing to PlugShare - EV Charging Station Map - Find the nearest location to charge your electric car!
    • The waze page has an iframe pointing to Waze for Tesla Incidents and Supercharger Traffic
    • The stock page hits the yahoo finance API to return some basic data.

    This project is on github here: GitHub - JaredBanyard/qTesla: A Web Portal for the Tesla Web Browser
    The reddit post for this project is here: http://qTes.la - An Update for the Tesla Screen Web Portal • /r/teslamotors

    Known Issues:
    * iframe resizing on plugshare and waze pages when the browser is change to/from full screen. (reload page as workaround).

    I love the site and use it daily. Do you think there will eventually be a charge to use it?
