Getting my first autopilot update after 7.0 and concerned that Tesla would remove features from autopilot. Anyone else has this concern?

What makes you say this? Are there reports that folks have lost features? Or are you referring to Elon's quote from the conference call a couple of days ago?

I just got a new update this morning, I considered not installing it for this worry, especially with Elon's recent remarks, however I also have a service appointment on Thursday, so it would likely be applied then regardless, so I just installed it. App notified me that it's done, but I'll have to wait until I get home to find out what version it is.

I mentioned this back when I first installed 2.7.56. No way I'll be installing future updates immediately given Tesla's track record of no release notes prior to install and their proven willingness to remove paid features without warning in the past. Now that I finally have a working auto steer feature Tesla can go to hell if they think they're going to remove it or neuter it.

I also got 2.7.106 this morning. Only change Noticeable was temp and Time back on Instrument Panel. Autopilot features still working as before but noticed that crossing intersections is much improved.

Oh thank goodness for the time and temp back where they belong! But I am still scared to install the newest update. I haven't seen it yet and I will be waiting for comments.

Yes, and it's not like people abused Autopilot by getting out of the driver's seat and sitting on the backseat while the car is moving and shared a video of it for the whole world to see so Tesla looks negligent for not having locked down Autopilot, right? :rolleyes:

If Tesla adds driver occupancy sensing the same video could be made with a weight in the seat...

Strange. I had the update notification on my phone yesterday afternoon. Went out to the car before going to bed and there was no update showing in the car?


Me too - had the notification on Thursday morning - said no to it in the car. Went out to check it at lunchtime, and the little alarm clock icon had vanished

I guess it was pulled.....?
