  1. CarPlay?

    Both interfaces are a mass produced joke, and neither company grew on compromise like that in explosive mode. Just now mass produced mode hence the lame folks clamoring. The loudest complainers barely heard of CarPlay a few years ago. Lol.
  2. Doug Demuro Review: The Rivian R1T Is the Coolest Pickup Truck Ever Made

    I test drove one, and it was far and away the best driving experience I have ever had...from acceleration, to braking, to handling off pavement, to on pavement manners...Rivian makes the very best car available at the moment. I would not worry about people upset w/ reviews...
  3. CarPlay?

    lol...I love that both Tesla and Rivian, but multi-billion dollar companies on the vanguard of transportation, do not listen to folks asking for CarPlay and AA. Adopting sub-standard interfaces to be part of the herd is automakers 1.0...Looking forward to 2.0
  4. 📬 Rivian Sends Delivery Window E-Mail. What’s Your Dates? => Vote in Poll!

    Either making sure they don't do delay, so easily beating estimates or there is a production issues that need to be corrected...I can't think of another reason.
  5. 📬 Rivian Sends Delivery Window E-Mail. What’s Your Dates? => Vote in Poll!

    September 2019 R1S Launch Edition, San Francisco Bay Area, June-July 2022... Disappointed to say the least....
  6. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    Unfortunately they were not sure...So the big question is what happens when you stop paying for built-in LTE? How much functionality do you lose? Maps? Spotify? Can the car use your phone? What is the BT streaming interface like? Sounds like a good question for CS online... One note is we...
  7. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    So, good news with Spotify integration, you don't need your cell phone. You login to Spotify on the App on the Rivian interface, and it then sync's with your Spotify account - just like another interface, ie your phone, computer, TV, etc. This means: 1. You don't need to constantly take your...
  8. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    Sure thing! I am confused too, but will try to get info best as I can. If you just login to your account w/ the onboard Rivian App that would be ideal - no streaming or phone involved, playlist downloaded from the sync'd cloud account, and can use any HiFi Spotify adds in the future. Or it...
  9. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    You can currently download tracks and/or entire playlists locally on Spotifyon your Phone so no need for cell service if you download your music to your phone. I’ll play with it tomorrow but if Rivian has the Spotify App native, then it would potentially leave my phone completely out of the...
  10. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    I currently have to plug my phone in every time I want car play, and its a drag...I am also listening to Spotify streaming which is not lossless. If I can get similar quality and my phone stay in my pocket that's a win. To be clear I have not done a market study, but I would foolishly hazard...
  11. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    Well luckily, Rivian made the correct decision to use their resources creating a UI design for their specific electric vehicle, and not one designed to work w/ dozens of ICE cars, screen, and integration design compromises. So chalk me up to the group that agrees with them and look forward to...
  12. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    What % of the public in your estimation keeps music on USB sticks at this point, and if you were the CEO of Rivian would you spend resources during launch on that functionality vs. hundreds/thousands of other priorities?
  13. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    About? I’ll remind you of a Steve Jobs quote: “People don't know what they want until you show it to them. That's why I never rely on market research. Our task is to read things that are not yet on the page.” CarPlay is the least Apple like interface (my first computer was a First gen Mac 128k...
  14. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    I have used CarPlay for years...there has been 1 update to the UI. It's horrible. Can't wait to ditch it...Just today banners from Waze blocked the down scroll icon...and then Radio usage, text UI covering the whole screen.... I have a feeling when people use a UI designed for a much much...
  15. Long demo video of touchscreen display, UI, digital instrument cluster

    This interface looking, purely in my opinion, and a looong time user of Apple CarPlay to be far far superior...
  16. CarPlay/AA

    I have been using carplay since launch, use it every day that I drive in the car. That said, the UI, just in my opinion, is simplistic and at times frustrating. They have to deal w/ many cars, including small screens...if they could use a large hi-res screen, Car Play would likely be a whole...
  17. Can we be honest with each other - what benefit does a Rivian have over upcoming EVs?

    Ummm...Well, to start its a full size SUV. It also has 805hp. It also has 4 motors for tracking in rain, snow, sand, rocks. It also has (what I have heard) amazing on-road performance. I have seen nothing, even on the horizon, close...
  18. What $70K ICE car would you have gotten ?

    I was a weird guy with a computer at home at one point in my life…now everyone has one in their pocket. Things can change pretty quickly.
  19. Do I really need the Max Pack?

    This is a funny discussion...I am price insensitive....$10k is not material to me, so I guess I could get the max pack, but as a data point for the discussion, I don't want it...Not sure why, but I could afford the Lucid @ $125K too... It might be a learning to live within my means...
