This is the best Pokemon Go hack yet.

People have been spotted driving around in their cars catching Pokemon and crashing into police cars having their eyes on the Pokemon Go app and not on the read. A media editor living in the San Francisco Bay Area has a better solution. He plays Pokemon Go on his Tesla Model S. Only identified as Jeff, a media editor of lifestyle website Pink Java, installed Pokemon Go on the Tesla media system. He uses the rear camera and GPS of the Model S. 

Pokemon Go looks awesome on the huge 17-inch Tesla display. "It makes for quite a challenge," Jeff said. "I almost backed over a Rattata!"

If you are a Tesla owner, you will have to dream on. Jeff is not revealing the details on how to install Pokemon Go on a Tesla car. The main issue is that to install apps and make customizations requires root access to the system, which requires to open the dash and connect directly with the board computer.

Jeff already has his mind set to the next app he wants to use with his Tesla Model S. “Tinder. Going to see if I can swipe right with my turn signal."

Hope Jeff does not get into any accident with his hacked Model S. These types of hacks pretty sure void the warranty.

Pokemon Go is the top grossing app since weeks on the app stores around the world. The viral game is still rolling out to more countries. Especially Asia and South America still has lots of countries the game is not available. Niantic tries to get its act together and has for the first time issued a statement geared towards the games' community. Niantic explains the latest update that removed the nearby foot print feature and also why they sent lawyer letters to 3rd party apps like Pokevision.
