It makes a nice bright screen to help light up the cabin. That's about it!
Never use it, except for the Tesla Waze. And not much for that. Don’t really care much.
I think it's usable, but it doesn't remember login name and passwords, so that affects it's usability the most. It's seriously primitive, but it is usable to some extent. It won't play any videos or audio. My favorite use for it is this: Starfield Simulation - Fun Tesla Screen I don't think you can call that worthless, can you? LOL, the graphics look way better viewing this on my ten year old PC, than they do on my one year old Tesla's center screen. Oh well, luckily not being able to order my car from it wasn't a deal breaker.
Nobody told me there is a browser in the center screen..
Some sites like plugshare specifically have a workaround for this where you get a token on a login and bookmark that page. YMMV
It is useless.
Well comparing it to all other cars currently available that have an integrated web browser in the touchscreen on the dash I'd say it works fairly well. Understanding of course that web browsing is not the core function of the MCU. But it can come in handy when all else fails, or when you have the time..
I find it I use it to catch up on news and emails and such generally while waiting at a supercharger
I forgot all about those when I sold my P85+

Thanks for the reminder!
I use qtes.la mostly and msn.com seems to load OK if you want news.
Tesla Waze is full time on my browser screen.
The browser is years behind in security updates. I honestly think the only way it is going to be updated is when a tetherless "hackMyTesla.com" website exploit appears, that either takes control of your car's autopilot, or enables things like autopilot and battery caps without paying for it. There's been no follow through on the promised updates, so nothing short of bad press or financial motivation is going to make this change.
or, maybe there is a merge with the 9.0 or whatever version of the OS we've seen running in the Model 3, Roadster, and Semi coming. That looks drastically different, so maybe they started over with that build - it would explain why we haven't had our big 2017 update liek was common around October in years past.
Tesla.PlugShare.com is currently down for renovations to resolve incompatibility issues between Google Maps and the current Tesla Web Browser.
In the meantime please use the PlugShare Android or iOS apps available for free on the Play Store and Apple App Store.
We look forward to bringing you an updated site soon.

Right. Plugshare redid their website recently, about a week ago if I recall, I got an email on my account. Oh well. Worked great for the 2.5 years I used it.

It’s utterly useless.
It loads pages so slow like dial-up speeds.
It’s not as responsive as my iPhone. Very laggy, well the whole UI is actually.
Doesn’t play YouTube videos.
Not sure what the point was to add a browser in the first place.
It’s good for Tesla Waze and also for fast.com to tell me how miserably slow the current LTE speeds are LTE Throttling since 11/3/17
In 2012, it seemed like a really cool thing to have on the huge touchscreen.
That said, I have used it successfully with Gmail in "HTML" or "classic" mode, but you do lose some functionality.
What's an internet browser, in a Tesla?
Not an option in our Australian spec Tesla
Waze page is great but is so disappointing otherwise. I hope for a wholesale replacement with the next major update.
qtes.la - weather
CNN - Breaking News, Latest News and Videos - cnn "lite" edition - for browsers that can't handle it. Perfect for telsa browser tho (lite . cnn. io)
