    Vision only sucks ass

    After you engage autopilot at night, toggle the left stalk forward. It will disable auto-highbeams. Yes, with autopilot engaged. Annoying thing is that they toggle back on next time you re-engage AP (e.g. after a lane change on AP). Like mentioned above, my muscle memory now is two down on...

    Losing my mind over the random slowdowns

    Can confirm the brain is difficult to reprogram... I've shifted into neutral before at 75 MPH because I didn't get the normal disengagement tone when I thought I was in NoA. Fortunately you can 'shift' back into drive without stopping or double-clutching...

    Tesla Motorway Convoy

    True on the size issue. A*holes and indecisive/inattentive drivers will always be an issue. It doesn't take but 2-3 though to see huge gains. What if it was capped at, say 3 max? Back when I was younger, dumber, and bulletproof my buddy and I did this manually driving on I-20 from LA to TX. I...

    FSD Beta 10.11

    I don't think any of us has a handle now on their strategy. Would love to hear from an insider.

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

    Raurele doesn't have FSD Beta. They're waiting as well... Plain ole AP is what they're using.

    FSD Beta 10.11

    My $0.02 is that it's long as they're still investing in the data I'll keep sending it. Zero clue what it contributes or improves but if they're paying to download and store it I'll generate it. I agree with you that on drives where I know it sucks I don't use it. I try to engage where I can.

    Long drives

    Can you actually quantify 'excessive' though or are you just noticing the "preconditioning" advisory. I'm not discounting what you're asserting here, curious your experience. This thread is the closest I could find: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/preconditioning-for-an-hour.222342

    Didn't the preconditioning glitch get fixed in the 2022.4.x or 2022.8.x release? Thought I remember reading that.

    FSD Beta 10.11.1 (2022.4.5.20) - Limited or Mass Release?

    Pretty easy to sort on TeslaFi when the next iteration drops. Would be an interesting case study. Especially since the last couple releases seem to be a departure from the pre-holiday new enrollment period. Sample size of 1 - from 10.4 to 10.8.2 I was always in the first wave. Now I'm about...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    As if PB wasn't enough allow me to introduce its cousin (twice removed), phantom blinking. I'm still on 10.10.2 and experience the same in motion. Another one that amused me just Thursday was sitting at a left turn red arrow. The blinker was coming on for about 20", going off for 5-10, and...

    Long drives

    I do a 560 mile round trip about weekly. No problems. Autopilot//NoA has a noticeable positive impact on my fatigue and stress levels when I reach my destination on either end. I'm a ~33,000 mile per year driver and I love both the ADAS and electric drivetrain components of Teslas.

    Cruise Control / Autopilot unavailable after update?

    Ask service to repush the update to your car. In the meantime, try leaving sentry and summon off when you park it for the night today. Good luck!

    The catastrophe of FSD and erosion of trust in Tesla

    Same. I have confirmation off. Definitely requires torque at each instance of an auto lane change.

    Driver profiles to be stored in the cloud

    It will likely be an upcoming feature. Isn't live yet. Source This is an undocumented change in this release and a future feature that is under development. Tesla continues the development of 'Cloud Profiles'. Cloud Profiles will let you sync select vehicle profiles across various vehicles...
