Advanced Summon in parking lot

I'm learning that using the target is the best practice. Set the target where you want the car to go, and check the path it maps. It IS going to take that path...now it won't run into anything, but if the path is extra stupid, prepare for the car to get stuck. If it's a good path, the summon should work pretty flawlessly if not a little slow with some (seemingly) random braking.

Has anyone tried Advanced Summon in a parking lot with one way lanes with angled parking? I am assuming that I will have to park so the car will back out and be headed in the direction it will need to go. Love my M3! gets smarter all the time.

While I have not tried that, I don't think it is that "smart". My guess is that it will probably go the "wrong way" if that's where it needs to go. We tried it once yesterday at work parking lot. The car pull in across 2 empty handicap parking spots.

Great advice, and I love your YouTube channel. It has rapidly become one of my favorite Tesla related channels.
