    I recall that when 8.0 rolled out with the built-in nags, that there was some published guidelines about when the nags would occur. Does anyone remember these guidelines or have insight into real data?

    I recall the following:

    - Maximum time between nags is 3 minutes when driving above a certain speed
    - No nags when driving below a certain speed (can't remember what the limit was)

    I've observed:

    - Nag frequency changes depending on what highway I'm driving
    - Traffic (I think I remember that it nags more if there's no car in front of me)
    - Immediate nag when manually accelerating
    - Possibly delayed nag if I activate a lane change

    Other possible factors:

    - Time of day?
    - Weather?

    Thanks for any insight!

    Search for posts from @wk057 . He has a lot of fact-based empirical data on this topic. Basically it calculates a lot of data points to trigger the nags and alerts.

    AP2 in it's current state has at least 3-5X more nags on the same route as I have driven my old AP1 car on for 40k miles
