    I've been looking around for some websites that might be useful to bookmark. Was hoping to see more that were usefully formatted/customized for the half Tesla screen.

    So far I've only found this weather page: Weather for Chicago O'hare, IL

    And there's a couple of fun things here, but mostly silly (and seems like it's not an active project): TeslaTuner.com - The place for Tesla Motors apps and accessories


    Anyone else found things of use/interest (beyond just regular webpages)?

    I whipped up this one.

    Weather information MKE

    I also keep the TAF / METARs bookmarked for my local aviation school, my custom departure based charge scheduling script, and some traffic cameras.

    +1 - with it, you also get weather, stocks, and news. Although, some times news doesn't seem to work for me.

    I've added train schedules for our local transit service (for pickups/dropoffs), MLB.COM, NFL.COM (great for "watching" the scores), among others...

    I live in Seattle and have a shortcut to the WA-DOT web page showing the freeway status for my commute.

    The traffic on the built-in map is insufficient?

    Since you'll be using your Model S to drive around the country for free and trying new regional root beers, you'll definitely need have a bookmark to a quality root beer reviewing website to make sure you only drink good ones :rolleyes:

    Try [inappropriate link removed by moderator] while you are driving. Very interesting.

    Moderator note: Inserting porn links into your message isn't all that witty and will earn negative reputation. This is a family site, folks.

    I use www.bing.com. The image changes each day and it fits the screen perfectly.

    Home | Nest works nicely as well, assuming you have Nest thermostats at home (and if not, they're well worth considering!)

    Though I am not particular about using bing, I like the site on the Tesla screen. The images look really good and do fit perfectly.
    Also the http://dash.time4tesla.com site is also on my list.

    Now, if they would only fix the Tesla website so that it would be fully compatible with the Model S browser... Maybe when we get Chrome...
