Polish programmer Michał Gapiński (@mikegapinski) is a workaround for bringing Apple CarPlay to Tesla, called the ‘Tesla Android Project’, has announced a new update with improvements and support for more Tesla cars.
The update, version 2022.25.1, offers “100% functional CarPlay integration for any Tesla.”
According to Gapiński, version 2022.25.1 also comes with an abundance of new features and bug fixes.
These include performance improvements, DRM support that lets apps like Netflix work, lock work orientation so apps like Apple Music automatically launch in landscape mode, upgrade to Android 12.1 for better stability, and more.
Tesla owners have been seeking support for CarPlay for years, but to no avail. Gapiński decided to take matters into his own hands and a domestic solution for transferring CarPlay to any Tesla.
Gapiński’s “hack” relies on running CarPlay on a custom version of Android, which he originally installed on a Raspberry Pi connected to his Tesla. The developer showed an alpha version of the software back in February. Tesla Android finally became available for download last month,,
Earlier this month, Apple showed a major update to CarPlay with a refreshed design and deeper hardware integration. The next generation of CarPlay is expected to start appearing in cars by 2023, but the chances of a new iteration ending up in Tesla remain slim.
