If you buy a Tesla you’ll get all kinds of cool features and benefits but there is one thing that you won’t get — Apple CarPlay.
The feature, which is available on all kinds of cars these days, has never been offered on any Tesla vehicle and seems unlikely to happen any time soon. That is unless you take matters into your own hands.
That’s what Polish developer Michał Gapiński decided to do when they set about installing a custom Android build onto a Raspberry Pi. Apparently, it works surprisingly well and the plan is to bring the software to the masses when it’s ready to go.
Gapinski explained to Tesla North the setup is based on a custom build of Android, running on a Raspberry Pi. The project is in its early stages and he plans on releasing it to the public “when it’s polished”.
This implementation might all be a hack but it still allows people to use the car’s steering wheel controls for media and the whole thing runs through the Tesla’s in-car internet browser.

You can see the whole thing working in the tweet above.
Would you jump through these hoops to get a CarPlay experience in your Tesla, or are you happy to use what you currently have in-car?
