Apple CarPlay or Android Auto in your Tesla?

We all know that Tesla vehicles are not designed to support Android, CarPlay or Android Auto. This project changes that by turning the browser into an interactive Android tablet that works when the vehicle is being driven.

After six months of work first alpha version has been released. The main objective for this release has been simple: usability. For the project to scale and become popular in the Tesla community it needs to provide a responsive Android experience. Otherwise, people won't use it. In June 2022 a second release (version 2022.25.1) was published.

Right now the focus is starting to shift towards better integration and simplification. Dropping the two boards requirement will help in reducing both cost and entry barrier by reducing the install guide to something that can be done in a matter of minutes.

Release notes for the new update include improved audio playback, loading times, error handling, display refresh rate, orientation lock so apps will open in landscape mode, and correct resolution for CarPlay display.

The hack has also been updated to Android 12.1 for improved stability and performance.
