In this Tesla Model 3 audio system review I cover Slacker, TuneIn, Spotify, Apple Music, and other different methods of getting audio into the car. The sound system is … in a word … amazing, but it all comes down to sources you’re using. Aside from HD FM, which is better, the built in Slacker Radio streaming service, your phone over bluetooth, or plugging in a USB thumb drive full of MP3s?
Important Update: According to the Tesla user manual, you can activate higher bitrate Slacker in the Model 3, but the instructions on how to do so are incorrect/outdated. There is a lot of debate on Tesla forums on the actual bitrates available. I’ve contacted Tesla for more information and will update as soon as I have it. In the meantime, I’d recommend holding off on paying for Slacker Premium for higher bitrates.
