Infotainment coming to Tesla. Read as MCU upgrade.
Details here: https://www.tesla.com/support/infotainment
Infotainment minus all radios. All of them: AM, FM and SXM.
@rxlaw, not taking away from from your concern, but since I’ve had my 2012 S, and since KGO 810 became worthless, and since I got Slacker and don’t have to deal with local advertising, All good with me.
FM ha. ;-)
Tune in to 1610 AM for local weather, well that might be handy.
Not wringing my hands for what has been an upgrade over the years.
loss of SXM is a problem if you travel in areas without cell coverage (like me)
YOu cant stream fom a phone that doesnt work.
Yes thats infotainment. Internet streaming is becoming superior. You can also choose to not upgrade.
Streaming is a replacement for radio only if Tesla adds TuneIn Premium support, otherwise the on board media center can't access live sports and some of the news channels available on FM/HD-radio/XM.
There should be an option for adding the radio.
Tesla should also offer an option to trade-in for a new vehicle that has full MCU2/FSD support (transferring FSD).
@bp: I don’t use TuneIn, but what happens if you sign in to a TuneIn Premium account from the car?
Wishful thinking on the FSD transfer, but never going to happen. :-)
Would like to have the infotainment upgrade, but no AM / FM radio is a deal killer for me. I need access to local talk shows, local news and local weather. I will explore TuneIn, but still like the idea of having over the air radio for emergency situations, such as storms with heavy damage. If cell towers go down, am / fm would be the only news source. Doesn't happen often, but when it does, you need the am / fm access.
@Jim,Tunein has no CBS content and it freezes a lot.
Garyjtate, Tesla’s since 2012 have had “infotainment”. So there is “Infotainment coming......”
