    Can We Inundate this Garbage Article Ripping on AP with facts??

    Just saw this in my feed and it should make us all want to stand up and correct the paranoia of the average (idiot) drivers out there, the majority of whom are much less safe than Tesla's earliest iteration of Auto Pilot. Especially in California! Here's the article: Something Needs To Be Done...

    What's next for Autopilot?

    The 2018.10.4 update is getting everybody excited about Autopilot again. I'm wondering if @jimmy_d, @verygreen, or anyone else who has a deep technical understanding of how Autopilot is evolving cares to speculate on what we'll see next. For instance, I watched a 2018.10.4 test video where the...

    Full Self Driving Option vs Autopilot?

    Based on what I understand, the full self driving option for Model 3 is a software-only thing and installs no new hardware. At the same time, because of software limitations, it doesn't currently provide actual autonomous capability. My questions: * Is my understanding accurate? * What...

    Tesla Full Self-Driving Capabilities in California

    Hello, Like very many others on this site, I have a Model 3 reservation and I was mulling over which options to choose when the time comes. The full self driving capability is a pretty cool premise, but I know that full self driving is not allowed just yet. That being said, does anyone know...

    Full Self-Driving Hardware and front license plate

    My Model X has the new full self-driving hardware. Do you know if the "The Law - Tesla Model X Front License plate Bracket X7340" from Torklift will or will not obscure any of the front cameras or the radar unit?

    V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle) Communication in FSD-Ready Teslas

    As NHTSA pushes for implementation of V2V communication in new vehicle, what does this mean for the current Tesla's being marketed as hardware ready for FSD?

    Would you trust AP2.0 with your life?

    I'm looking for input from experienced AP1 owners . Autopilot sure does lull you into a false sense of security. Being a techie I know software will have bugs and hardware will fail. Its a matter of "when" not "if". I've just placed an order and excited about getting the new hardware. However...
