I have read various debates about whether in fact CarPlay should be a feature on Tesla. Many of them come out against because Tesla offers much functionality in its own apps, and because you can simply tether your phone.
These arguments miss something simple: it is legal to use CarPlay while driving (or at a red light) just as it is legal to use your radio. It is illegal to use your cell phone.
I think we can all agree that for example for Podcasts, iPhone has far superior apps (eg Overcast) than the Podcast app in the Tesla. Why do I have to illegally fumble with my phone to play a podcast when CarPlay offers the perfect, legal solution?
