Autopilot has improved again - driving into sun with faded markings better

    Perhaps it is my imagination but my big complaint which I've posted a few times here at TMC - autopilot's poor performance when driving into the sun with a lot of glare on the road - seems to have improved again.

    Yesterday I was driving west on the 210 freeway in the late afternoon sun, and as far as I could tell autopilot was tracking straight as an arrow, even with no cars around it with poor lane markings and a lot of glare. I was VERY impressed.

    My firmware is 2.18.77 - the latest one with the updated summon from a couple days ago.

    Same here but it also appears to again be shifting to the right at exits. Not like last year where it really would take the exit but not as good about passing exits as earlier this year.

    Another plus with the new update is I'm getting far fewer "nags" on the freeway.

    my AP seems to have regressed, it is diving for exits again.

    Funny how everyone's experience seems different.
