Anyone else getting super bored while charging ?? We have this huge screen in the car but hardly any entertainment option on it other than music!
I also have a Tesla with Netflix, Plex, games, Youtube, etc.
why put a huge screen in the car and use it as a radio ??
Did anyone try Car PlayAI box in theMach E? I would buy it if someone confirms that it works .

I just use my phone lol. I'll bring the iPad on a road trip. I find the Tesla apps clunky to use so I'd rather use them on my iPad anyways. The Youtube app just sucks compared to doing it on my phone/iPad.

I know there is always the phone but casting to Mach E screen would be easier on the eyes for sure. And of course cooler.

Wait. How did you find those threads @GoGoGadgetMachE? is there some super-secret method of finding similar threads? good thing it's well hidden or people would be using it all the time!

Seriously, Such things are coming. Patience.

A huge sync screen and all it does is play radio.... and access the drive modes, cameras, driver assist settings, charging, and EVERYTHING else about my $60K car. I’m quite happy that my car screen focuses on running my car.
If I wanted Netflix, I would have bought an iPad Pro for a LOT cheaper. And it would do it better.

I mostly agree.
But I think there is a big advantage with the audio. If the video uses the car's speakers, then the audio quality will be way better than any iPad. If someone is sitting in the car while charging, esp. with multiple people in the car, then I can see a good bit of advantage of playing it on the Mach-e screen.
