Teslas have a lot of cool things going for them, like Long-term And the One of the best shipping networks Around. But they are far from perfect, and one of the negatives is that none of them are supported Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
But it may be possible to overcome these limitations with some technical ingenuity.
Michel Jabinsky (Opens in a new tab)the same programmer who figured out how to do it Play Apple CarPlay on Tesla again in January, with a new update for the Tesla Android project. A lot has changed since the beginning of the year, and not only has Gapiński published a Detailed how to (Opens in a new tab)Obviously, the process also ensures that Android Auto can run on Tesla as well.
However, it is not an easy process and requires a Raspberry Pi 4 And prepare to research Tesla software. But once you can sideload Android on your Tesla, that means you can access both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay through the car’s browser.
2022.44.1 will reduce the load on your MCU. System response when it comes to autopilot visuals, opening apps and jumping back into CarPlay feels much faster, we’re getting close to OEM quality Take a look at this quick preview of the new version on the drive: pic.twitter.com/lfUNZRvxwaOctober 20 2022
The video above only shows Tesla running CarPlay, with no sign of Android Auto. But Gapiński how to teach (Opens in a new tab) It demonstrates that the process can be used to operate both auto software segments. If it should be easier to run Android Auto in a stable way, since it is a native Android app.
However, it doesn’t matter which of the software bits you actually want to use. Installing Tesla Android seems like a long and somewhat technical process. So it is not designed at all for people who don’t know what they are doing. There is also no type of impact this repair will have on your warranty. So proceed at your own risk.
Tesla Model 3 and Model Y owners will already know how important the center display is. Because Tesla, oddly enough, thinks its two cheapest cars don’t need to display driver information behind the wheel, everything goes through that 15-inch panel — including your current driving speed.
Fortunately, the fact that Tesla runs Android via the browser, which is an official feature in the infotainment system, means that a third of the screen is not affected. So you will still be able to see all the vital information you need.
there Stand-alone displaysPowered by a standard 12V car socket, it can access Android Auto and CarPlay on its own. They can cost a few hundred dollars, but they are usually easy to set up and use.
None of this would be necessary if Tesla provided support for both apps in the first place. It’s one of the only automakers that doesn’t offer support for either, which means users have to pay for the company’s premium calling package ($10 per month, or $99 per year) to get anything more than basic navigation in their car.
Both Android Auto and CarPlay are more limited and lack many of the same features as Tesla, such as smart navigation that automatically adds charging stops on long trips. But it would be nice to have a few options, without having to delve into casual hacks. No matter how awesome it is.
