    My favorite morning show moved just far enough away that the FM radio won't receive it, but they are on iHeart Radio. How do I download that app? Also how do I use other satellite apps like Sirius?

    If there is a post already sorry. I didn't see it


    thanks :wink:

    Can you not find it on the pre-installed TuneIn app? They have stations from just about every market on Earth.

    You can't install apps (yet?). Tesla will be adding more apps with future updates. As mentioned by @mknox try finding it on TuneIn.

    I have this same issue. TuneIn doesn't have as many stations as iHeart, IMHO. It's frustrating as the reception of one of our favorite stations is not strong, so can get staticy.

    Just stream it via Bluetooth on your phone.

    Exactly... if you don't like the built-in apps, you can run whatever you want on a smartphone and send it by bluetooth to the car.

    If only it weren't illegal to hold your smart phone in California this might work. Not that it stops a lot of people, but it is illegal to hold your smart phone while driving in CA.

    1. Get in car and DO NOT drive
    2. Pull out phone and launch iHeart app
    3. Tune to station using app
    4. Connect to Bluetooth (if not already done)
    5. Mount phone in a holder or place in cubby
    6. Drive car with no fear of tickets
    7. Questions?
    8. Profit!

    OK, all you smart a$$es... my point is you can't dynamically change it and it would be better if it were actually an installed application as opposed to requiring us to utilize the external device.

    The Bluetooth integration can be pretty good. I use a Podcaster app and I can pause,rewind,ff all from the steering wheel. It's definitely something to try
