    See: Tesla Starts Beta-Testing AutoPilot 7 Features with Owners – News – Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog interesting...

    "According to the report, Autopilot version 7 is just a slight evolution from the previous package of driver-assistance bits, helping to better manage lane-keeping, following distance, and braking and acceleration, although Tesla CEO Elon Musk had previously promised that this version would also summon the car via your smartphone or smartwatch—on private property only, at this point. IEEE also alleges that testers will still have to oversee all operations and register their alertness by hitting the turn-signal indicator for lane changes. “We don’t want to set the expectation that you can basically pay no attention to what the car is doing,” Musk said in a call to analysts to discuss second-quarter earnings last week. In other words, Tesla wants to ensure that the liability for any incidents is with its owners, not with the company."

    fingers crossed BETA testing goes well!

    Not what I was told. Was told that features are a game changer, by staff at Sydney service centre who have seen the software. Unless of course, they are simply going to release the interface at this time and hold back on some of the features which staff have seen and again release them gradually as they are tested.
