Audio Connectivity Using USB

65

Description

Allow phones connected via USB to play music from the phone (not using Bluetooth).

Bluetooth is not an adequate way to listen to high quality music files from your smartphone – a direct cable based connection to the on-board audio system would be a better solution to listen to your music. Simultaneously the smartphone would be charged 😉

As SPOTIFY is still not supported by Tesla the use of a smartphone would be a solution – but only with a lossless connectivity!

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

For the iPhone it may require custom software and licensing  from Apple.  Part of the issues is Apple’s use of DRM for some music.

Would make my life a lot easier with my iPod Classics.
Agree completely. One example is when one passenger (typically a family member) wants to plug in his/her iphone to listen to music stored in the device,  with the driver being connected to the car's bluetooth. Totally doable in my old loved Chevy Volt... The other way to circumvent the problem would be for the Tesla to enable two bluetooth connections at the same time. Not possible either..

Tesla, please do it!
I'd like to see the ability to have two connections, one for phone, and one for a music device.  That would be nice.
