Mirror Phone onto Touchscreen


Please go to earlier request:  Phone/Tablet Screen Operations via Bluetooth


It would be cool to enable Air-Play and mirror the phone screen on the Tesla touchscreen display. Even better would be to send gestures input back to the phone from main display back to phone to control apps.


Technically it is possible using Bluetooth and is it can be done with software upgrade for iPhone. Android may not have a similar feature.

actually this does NOT appear to be a duplicate.

the other article wants to be able to use a phone or tablet to control model s, and replicate those actions on a phone or tablet.

this post is suggesting that the model s screen be allowed to view/mirror what is on the phone or tablet screen... basically enable an "AirPlay" type of display mirroring.  I would love to see my phone apps larger, etc.
Hi Hasselboxster, You are absolutely right. This is AirPlay similar option where I can stream whatever I have on my phone playing I can mirror to car system including video and audio. This is different and much easier to implement as there are already unix/linux based Airplay  Servers which Tesla can port to the car system it does not need any 2 way comm it is all one way from phone to Car. Using this feature we can play for example a Music video or Movie on the phone and watch/listen on to the 17" Screen.

Please remove duplicate from this post.

Elan, give me access to run APPs onboard and I will give this app for free for Tesla users more  in a week.

this frature is nice when the kids on the back seat want to watch a movie on the ipad and can then stream the music is sourround sound
Project mode was announced by Elon, if I'm right. Probably due for release a few years ago :S

More seriously, this would save a lot of effort writing an SDK for Tesla and you'd still get access to more apps which are in the Android/iPhone's ecosystem.
It would also be great when using Waze or the Uber Driver App.  The phone screen is so small it's near impossible to see - 17" display would be a HUGE improvement.
