Now that the first "third-party apps" have started to appear such as the larger clock, how do we protect our cars from viruses? How do we insure that downloading these apps won't cause problems? I think Tesla should come up with a certification process whereby outside application developers can submit their apps for certification by Tesla. Once Tesla has tested the app and given it its seal of approval, then we Tesla owners could be assured that downloading it would be safe. Also, what about surfing the web. What if any virus and malware protection is installed in our cars?
