If you recall though, it was a while before they started allowing any other apps on the original iPhone
The App Store launched to the public on July 10, 2008. The SDKs were made available to developers ~ six months prior. This is almost exactly 1 year after the initial release of the iPhone. Apple always allowed web-based apps (including creating icons on the iPhone screen) but customer/developer feedback quickly changed their mind.

Pretty cool she said I would see preference for being community member since 2019

As we don't have any detail yet on the UI, does any one know anything on the "weather" capabilities on the center display? I imagine it will not just be the "temperature" but I'm hoping will actually include radar and weather prediction at your destination location etc... Wouldn't it be great to have info on incoming storm/radar as you are driving to a trailhead!

I'm sure the vehicles will have a web browser with which you will be able to bring up any weather site just as you can on PC or smartphone. What is really useful in a vehicle on a trip is the windspeed and direction resolved into head/tail and crosswind components. There are services that collect this data from airports, marinas, the coast huard, private weather stations... and make it available over the net. If you take hundreds of these reports they are free but if you take millions there is a fee so if Rivian's mother ship gets this data and parses it out to the vehicles it will cost you something but if the car queries the system using a browser it will not so I'm guessing that if this data it will have to be through a web connection. Search Teslawinds and hope he extends his service to Rivian.

Of course the problem with this is that in remote areas there will be no cell phone coverage and thus none of this data will be available.

I also asked about range with different wheels and tires. As well as details on the infotainment system. More to come was the answer
My guide advised that the soon to be published range data will include how different wheel selection will affect range.

The are apparantly onboarding new guides this week... Call me naive, but I think that's encouraging.

They have been on boarding a few new guides over the past 1.5 months but whats really neat is now all locations across the USA seem to have a LOT of filled positions in regards to Vehicle Operations and Field Specialists.
