Would’ve been a lot better without the stupid background music added in! makes it very distracting and difficult to hear the demo person speak.

I find it amazing that lots of people record videos vertically, as if they have never ever tried to watch a video before in their life.....for a suppossed superior being that we are assumed to be, we are also very dumb at times too

This is the way to do it if you are filming for Instagram, Tik Tok, etc.

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

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 larger res/screen they will be shocked the sort of compromises Apple was forced to make by one OS, many devices...Note they have abhorred that w/ both iOS and OS X controlling both software and HW largely for the history of the company....


CarPlay/Android Auto is not a replacement but addition to the car's interface.

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 in 1985) they have ever designed.

Sorry, I Completely disagree.

Just because you can do it in a UI doesn't mean you should. I don't get why they put the climate controls only in UI. Physical buttons are better here. Basically unusable while driving, or at the very least impair your driving. Too much copying of Tesla here, even down to directing the airflow.

I stopped by the Rivian Hub in Venice again today. It was really quiet and I was able to sit in the truck for about 30 minutes, poking around the UI and specifically the maps. I think they have gotten at least one new OTA update into the trucks because the mapping interface was nearly flawless. Completely fluid scrolling around, pinching, zooming, rotating.

The front camera view is still the grainy seemingly low-res view but the framerate was much better as well - definitely 30+fps. The side and rear cameras were all pixel-perfect seemingly HD views. I don't know what's up with the front camera.

I brought up my beef about no USB music (not even with an iPhone or Android plugged in over a cable) and was told that they've been getting this question (and frustration) a lot. I don't know if anyone on the firmware team is hearing the feedback but it's really something that needs to be considered.
