It's stupid too...
Didn't know they could send a cease and desist for such a thing.
The price clearly includes so padding for the legal challenges they knew they would face or maybe just padded since they knew actual sales duration would be short so they needed to recoup R&D costs immediately.
They are just greedy, yo. It has nothing to do with anything but making a quick buck.
Maybe they should rename to Not-An-AutoPilot-Buddy.
Were you able to find the original thread?
For the record: when AP was first delivered there were no nags.
The system only alerted when it was unsure and needed human intervention.
Nope, and neither could HankLloydRight. I assume it was deleted either for a TOS violation, I'm pretty sure that they were advertising without paying for a Vendor account, or as a result of the NHTSA thing.
I hate to say this, but some people need to mind own business. I knew this wouldn't last long when everyone found out. I read comments from people (On Twitter) complaining, and I knew it was a matter of time before this thing got shut down. Look, if you didn't want/like the Autopilot ‘buddy’, all you had to do was not buy one !
Well that didn't take long for them to pop up on eBay for prices higher than what they originally went for.
And 5 bids already? WTAF?
Products like this are the way to make sure things like driver alertness cameras become a legal requirement.
The nags became more insistent because people did stupid things with autosteer and stuck it on YouTube. Basically Tesla drivers proved they couldn’t be trusted not to be stupid.
This is the sensible majority suffering because of the moronic minority.
Next step from NHTSA would have been that if Tesla can’t reliably determine if the driver isn’t awake then they would have to disable autosteer across the fleet.
If it were the other way around the nag delay would be increasing.
what about speed radar detectors? If you can allow that, why not this?
Now are they going to ban oranges?
Perhaps call it a hand exerciser that can easily be stored on your Tesla
If they can allow radar speed detectors, why not this?
So glad this is outlawed.
I don't know who thought this was a brilliant idea. Any efforts to subvert Tesla's attempts to ensure drivers pay attention, as imperfect as those attempt might be, is absolutely reckless. This is a danger not just to the Tesla driver and the occupants but those outside the vehicle as well.
I hope this sets a precedent and is the end of devices that try to defect Tesla's safety checks.
Things like this are the reason we can't have nice things!
I'm glad it's outlawed as well.
Can you imagine how many autopilot accidents would have occurred with this? For goodness sake….
Detecting radar is legal in most states. Jamming radar isn't legal anywhere.
Radar detectors don't encourage you to ignore the road completely.
There's also the side issue of incredible negative publicity to Tesla as well as self driving. It's harmful to both. Tesla has enough short sellers as it is. We don't need anything to turn the press/public against Tesla or self driving.
An orange is a hack someone cooks up themselves. It's much harder finding an orange that fits vs one that's engineered to defeat the autopilot sensor.
This was never a good idea and good riddance.
