    Is it limited to 35MPH JUST on roads without a center divider, but lets you drive faster on local roads with a center divider? That's what it seems to imply.

    Anyone test this out yet?

    Steady progress, drip by drip. Love it. Small steps add up to big things.

    I get my car this delivered this weekend hopefully. What does AP2 currently allow and where does it fall short vs AP1? Is there a checklist somewhere?

    I don't understand. People seem excited by this, however this looks to be yet another restriction on AP?

    @DHG - You car will do what it will do and won't what it won't. A checklist won't change anything lol.

    Your car will not have AP activated until you've driven a while and let the cameras calibrate. Also Tesla has been shipping some cars with dated firmware. Just check you're on the latest firmware. There is a list of features on electrek.

    Its actually far less restricted for us AP2 users. If you're confusing AP1 and AP2, AP2 is a LOT more restricted currently.

    Actually I believe it is far less restrictive for AP1 drivers as well as last December they got restricted to divided/limited access roads only. Prior to that restriction, AP1 could be used on pretty much any roads. This is getting AP back to that standard step-by-step.

    Worrysome that they added 35 MPH local roads but didn't bump highways to even 55 MPH. They appear to be having issues with higher speed steering. The only time I had my car do the lane bounce was when I let it go 50 MPH on autosteer without a car in front of me.

    At this rate we're at July before it will do 90 MPH like AP1 will. No idea when auto wipers, highbeams, parking, and summon will appear.

    Remember Elon's tweet on Dec 22:

    "Looks like we might be ready to rollout most of Autopilot functionality for HW2 towards the end of next week"

    He tweeted that 66 days after AP2 was announced and we're now 55 days after the tweet with all but a few features still missing or below AP1 parity.

    What?? "They" (we) did not!

    The restriction that got placed in December is that we could only go the speed limit on restricted roads. It used to be 90mph at launch, and in 7.1 ish got turned into +5mph, and then in December turned into +0mph for a month, and then went back to +5mph.

    It's really bad driving through an intersection when the lanes disappears, veering off to the left when on the left most lane. Will continue providing feedback here.

    What is the speed restriction on local roads WITH a center divider? Still 35MPH or will it let you go faster there?

    AP2 has a wide angle camera, so why is it that I can only see the car that is directly in front of me, and not the next lane over yet?
