    Haven't tried from a dash but works great on Chrome, which I guess misses the point :)

    Link to tesla.plugshare.com perhaps? It's their new page tweaked for the Model S browser. (They posted about it on here somewhere recently)

    Done! .. If you guys could test the accuracy of the Geolocation here too, that would be cool:

    Really cool. Geolocation worked for me using my desktop browsers (Opera and Chrome). Will try the car later.

    Thanks for the app!

    A cookie to save the zip code of the weather screen would be great. And/or a list of recent selections.

    Actually I just rewrote that screen, it's now using geolocation and Forecast.io.

    Cheers,

    Thanks man I appreciate it!

    Whoa, the stock widget was way too much for the car to handle, I replaced it with a lighter weight one.

    I also replaced the huge nationwide radar loop with a smaller one. The giant animated gif was rough to load.

    I would like the see the actual stock price, and not just the change/change%. I'd suggest just having the stock price and the change% and leave out the absolute change.

    Humble suggestion to Valet page, which may be my favorite.
    Arrange some links above the Valet title, pointing to various language versions of the same content. We really want Joe Valet to understand.
