I figured that title would be thought provoking to break in this sub forum.

Anyway, a momentary lapse in Tesla’s ability to match album art. Rob Thomas is definitely not Snoop Dogg...

This isn't a Tesla software issue - they're just displaying the album art returned by the metadata provider. It's an issue with that provider's database.
I agree with you on that. Just funny to see more than anything. In almost 4 weeks, this is the only time I’ve seen the wrong album art returned.

Sure, but unless we know what metadata provider Tesla is using, we have to go through Tesla to get it fixed. Also, do we know if the car contacts a metadata provider directly, or does Tesla keep their own copy of the metadata?

It’s being pulled from Mike’s phone (MB the iPhone)

I actually confirmed it’s not which was surprising to me. When my car has no service, I don’t get album art. When my car does have service, I do.

Even though the music comes from my phone, Tesla grabs album art from their own source.

That's surprising... in my car (that doesn't have it's own internet connection) album art is ported over to the screen when playing audio from my phone.
Same here with my experience in BMW. My (little...) Peugeot has CarPlay so it’s different altogether...

Man, I can’t wait to have you guys’ first world problems, @SoFlaModel3 ... :rolleyes:

mine is not using CarPlay - just old fashioned USB or Bluetooth ;)
(now second guessing if it brings album art with both or just USB...)
