Learnings about Slacker streaming service

As you may or may not know, Tesla in the US comes with Slacker Radio. I was hoping to get integration with Spotify when we got our Model S, but it’s only available in Europe. Black/Black MS has gathered some information and shared in the TMC forum, see the highlights:

  • 4 years of free access to Slacker Radio Plus
  • If you want to use the mobile app, you can email Tesla to get your credentials (since you don’t need them otherwise)
  • Tesla Slacker accounts are not upgradeable, but you can purchase a Slacker Premium account separately and use those credentials instead
  • It has an option for High Bitrate Streaming (320kbps vs. 128kbps)
  • You can’t play the same song over and over

MS owners share their favorite tunes in this thread. What’s yours?

Ours are “How far I’ll go”, from Moana’s soundtrack. Our 3 year old makes us play it all the time! And “The Passenger” by Iggy Pop, but only when we’re driving with AP on ;)
