    I have never been happy about Tesla's choice of Google for mapping because of their "up-to-the-creepy-line" policies and overall business model. But today I Motortrend is reporting that Porsche has refused to use Google because of the terms Google requires. Assuming that Tesla allows Google to collect similar information, I am now even more unhappy about the use of Google for navigation.

    I would love to see a non-tracking service replace Google in Tesla's navigation.

    Tesla doesn't use Android Auto. In addition, according to your link, Google states that before any info is shared, users must opt in.
