    Can anyone that has AP 2.0 report the nag level with the new hardware?

    Nobody can because EAP software isn't out yet.

    We just barely got our headlights to behave! See you in the New Year with EAP.

    My understanding is that with AP2 cars you really need to hold the steering wheel 100% of the time.

    (because no AP2 car has any form of Autopilot or Adaptive Cruise at the moment. You should really wait until the firmware enables AP before expecting feedback on how that firmware performs. :) )

    Way to take it on the chin. Most here aren't as easy going. :)

    For now it seems to depend on who's in the back seat...

    And ... will AP2 have all the restrictions currently placed on AP1, including "follow the speed limit" (or below, it seems) on undivided roads ?

    And ... will Autonomous AP2 be forced to follow the speed limit at all times, everywhere ? If so it will be bullied right off the road. I can swear I've had people already try to swerve nearer to my car while on AP to see if they can elicit a response (or I'm reading something into what is probably just the masses of horrible drivers out there).

    And ... what will be the Autonomous AP2 rule when in blizzard whiteout conditions ? Humans are pretty crazy when it comes to getting around in a snowstorm. The last one I drove through literally killed my AP, not only for that drive but permanently (service visit in a couple of weeks). Will Autonomous AP2 cars just stop in the roadway if they are "totally" blind and have no confidence ? 'Cuz humans (at least Canadians ;) keep going...
