My Tesla Model S has an Internet Browser with cool features like Death Rays and Flame Throwers to dissuade  the slower than molasses Prius drivers blocking the passing lane.

Unfortunately you need more than an Internet Browser to run SmartLink + SSDR albeit it works great on SSDR for iOS on an iPad

Currently Driving Laws prevent video from bring played on the screen

But wait for V2. Fully Autonomous Autopilot that is hardware available and soon to be software enabled on Tesla.  Then you can relax and work DX while your car drives you..

CarPlay support will be awesome if Marcus is interested in it, but I suspect it will be a niche market for now.

Apple watch support would be nice too for PTT and maybe even using the watch as a mic/speaker (provided it is supported in watchkit, I haven't looked). Or using the crown as a VFO knob! Or even Siri:

"Hey Siri, I want to work P5 on 20 meters"
"OK Ria, let me look at the DX cluster. Found it. Tuning to 14.195 USB"

(and you know you read the above in Siri's actual voice, lol)

CarPlay is a developer's rabbit hole. Apple doesn't answer requests for developers kits if they don't like the proposed use and won't say why.

Can be extremely frustrating. We've been asking repeatedly for years with not even one response.

Yeah I figured as much. You have auto manufacturer liability to factor in too. 

Apple TV was much the same in terms of apps. They wanted big names on there.
