For those not familiar, autopilot (auto steering + TACC) is visible via the blue (when active) steering wheel icon top middle right of the dash (see the picture I posted above).

When you get the update, which I assume is starting to roll out to other cars in HK, the notes are very obvious explaining the features and how it works, including auto lane changing.

By the way, I found the auto lane change a bit slow and hesitant for HK roads. I only saw it work once, the other times it took too long and I just took control of the car.

I called Tesla. They said AP2 features are rolling out on Model S now. They are working the Model X update in order to account for the airbag bug. No ETA but they said it should not take too long.

This is awesome! I had to get my GPS fixed which involved resetting the CPU so I'm back at the calibration phase (don't see cars in front of me on the dash nor do I see the lane lines) but this will be great once it does work.

Nice! Happy with the performance so far? Silky smooth?

I'll test the autopilot function more this weekend - hopefully its not raining too hard (I'm still not confident enough to rely on autopilot in bad weather). I only managed to drive with it on for a few trips last Sunday. Generally it works well. My brief observations so far:
- Auto lane change too slow, hesitates. I would not be confident using it unless on a large freeway where it can take its time to change lanes. I did see it work once and it seems to work well moving into other lane.
- Auto park only seems to detect when there are cars / obstruction on both sides of the car spot. I briefly tried it once but it started positioning in a way which was going to take a long time to correct, so I took over.

Will have to try it out more this weekend.
