Auto Pilot... Am I doing it wrong?

I’ll have a look at the offset.

In a way it is good to know this issue is not me, but disappointing it is so rubbish.

I’ve got a Hyundai Nexo and that copes so much better....

Well it did when I last drove it, not been able to get any hydrogen since March ;)

Did a 100 miles on the M5 last night...
Whilst fairly quite traffic, still had to change lanes to overtake slower moving traffic.

Theoretically if I am in the middle lane, cruise control set 75 (this is theoretical), auto pilot turned on, blue steering wheel icon illuminated.

Indicate to enter third lane, annoying bong, auto pilot turns off, cruise still at 75.

In third lane at 75, push stalk down to turn autopilot on again, more bonging, lcon blue again, car brakes to slow down to the speed limit of 70, as cruise control has reset itself. Now need to turn cruise control back up to 75.

rinse and repeat, many times.

Is it really that poor or hopefully I’m doing it wrong?

Definitely a change in behaviour on this update. AP used to use the TACC speed and now sets it's own. Very annoying.
