Danny Sullivan's Tweet About Model 3 Should Make Tesla Thinking
Danny Sullivan (Wikipedia) is not the last person in the tech industry. Being the co-founder of Search Engine Land, last year he joined Google as an adviser at the search division of the company.
About 10 days ago he twitted why he didn't buy a Tesla Model 3. Sullivan wrote that his main hesitation for buying a Model 3 was that Tesla's flagship car didn't have Apple CarPlay / Android Auto. This is something that increasingly more and more drivers would want to have in their cars.
Comparing Tesla Model 3 to Chevy Bolt, Sullivan wrote that his Bolt has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In fact, Chevy Bolt does have few advantages overTesla Model 3 and Apple CarPlay / Android Auto isn't even mentioned in that Torque News article to which I just linked in this paragraph.
Sullivan then goes on writing "If we can send a Telsa past the moon, we should support those within a Telsa. Meanwhile back on Earth, my Chevy Bolt supports both wonderfully."
And my biggest hesitation in getting the Tesla Model 3 is that it doesn't support Apple CarPlay / Android Auto. If we can send a Telsa past the moon, we should support those within a Telsa. Meanwhile back on Earth, my Chevy Bolt supports both wonderfully.

Then in a different tweet he suggests the nation's largest car rental companies to put a window sticker on the cars that support Apple CarPlay / Android Auto.
In fact, Toyota's newest vehicle refresh will have Apple Car Play. Android Auto and Apple Car Play are excellent automotive apps, but on road trips 2 hidden weaknesses and one strength quickly become apparent.
