    I received my 85D this past November and am one of the few that chose to not have it enabled at the time of delivery. While hoping I'd receive a message for a free 30 day trial my dreams have been crushed and rather than go out to my car each morning hoping to see the trial message, I've decided that Elon deserves more of my money.

    I'll have my car at the SC today at 2pm MST to have autopilot turned on! Any advise for a new autopilot driver?

    My wife doesn't know I'm doing this yet and tomorrow we're going to the airport to pick up her best friend for a weekend visit. I'm thinking I'll turn on the song "Jesus take the wheel", enable autopilot, and relax into my seat. My friend will be in the back taking video to gauge her reaction.

    They can't just do that remotely?

    That's the confusing part. There was a pic of a free 30 day autopilot trial that could be enabled OTA. When I called the SC they said I had to bring it in, it would take about an hour and a half. They turn it on, calibrate the sensors, and perform a test drive.

    I love it. it is not perfect and sometimes gets too close to the center line when you are in the outside lane of a four lane highway. Otherwise it is great and so nice on long trips as I find myself staying so much more alert for longer.
