I've had my Model X for just over a month now and am just starting to settle in. There's an incredible amount of thought and engineering put into the vehicle and experience that seems strangely behind in regards to the media player.
I'm hoping someone on this thread can assist or Tesla engineers can address:
- The fact that the vehicle automatically resumes tracks on my phone or even worse, continues playing tracks off my phone after I exit the car is a real frustration. There should be a way to adjust this in settings to make it stop and/or ask for permission to resume playback
- The USB Media option is very poorly integrated... which is extremely frustrating given the phone issue above and the lack of alternative sources. I just left an Audi that ran all my media through SD cards and was perfectly integrated. The Tesla media source should be capable of auto resume upon entering. I'm lucky if I can even get the media player to recognize the device consistently, much less resume playing. The ability to highlight favorites on the USB is a cruel joke as they don't remain in the favorites list in the media player. I bought a 1TB USB drive hoping to access this for music and the car won't read it. I'm running a high capacity thumbdrive, which works, but is cumbersome and spotty.
- There should be a way to switch the streaming service to Spotify. Slacker radio is a joke as it seems incapable of playing albums, only streaming artist stations which I don't do. Given the internet capability in the dash, I'm sure there's a work around here, but it should be a setup settings question on the streaming tab.
Any help with above would be greatly appreciated
