    Autopilot nag bug

    Since a couple of weeks my autopilot isn’t working as expected. Usually you get the ‘apply light force’ warning if you’re not holding the wheel, then the blue flashing thing, and eventually the red warning + sound alert. However, I now sometimes get the red warning instantly including the...

    Silly Question: How do you "Hold the Wheel" if it's Turning?

    OK, maybe you just need to hover the wheel while it spins. But what if you aren't aware of it turning at the exact moment. Like maybe waiting at a light to turn when it proceeds unexpectedly because the driver was staring off. And then you disengage because your hand is on the wheel while it...

    The Nag makes driving on Autopilot almost impossible for me...

    I am very strongly considering getting one of those devices that disables the nag in the autopilot because I can no longer use it reliably since it was updated to be so frequent.

    FSD & Nags

    I assume "to begin FSD" obviously does not equate to "no nags". At the point that a vehicle can be even a little bit autonomous like "here's the parking lot, go find a spot", maybe then the nags might stop for that trip? I'm just trying to better understand how (not when) this might be...

    What does "ignore" mean in 8.0?

    We seem to be missing a definion of what "ignore" means in 8.0. If I "ignore" three alerts my autopilot gets disabled. But what is the definition of ignore? Does it mean that I don't twitch the wheel in five seconds of the alert appearing? Of the bong sound that gets my attention from the road...
