No more dancing cars in V10. However I have cars drift in their lane. Additionally I have cars that will pop up and then disappear and then appear again.

I have seen this too; I've had a car running apace with me disappear from the MFD. I tested the actual detection with a turning signal, and the lane line did turn red, so there's that at least, though the *bamf*ing cars did reassure me that I was right to check with the Mk I Eyeball before lane changes, even when automated.

I chuckled today. Had an F150 come up beside me. As it came from the rear it was a car on the screen. Then it passed me...disappeared and then poof it was a pickup a car length in front of me. Freaking Tesla Magic!

Still waiting for V10 (among the 3% who haven’t been updated...sigh), so I’m still being entertained by some fantastic dancing cars. Can’t wait for V10 so I can say I miss the dancing...

Yes, that's roughly what I'm seeing also. In addition, while stopped, I no longer see the car right behind me in the same lane as me. Cars behind me in other lanes are showing up, but not the one right behind me. Is anyone else seeing that behavior?

No there is a BT CONNECTIOn not integration, a 2015 honda civic can read texts and ACTUALLY INTEGRATE WITH CARPLAY AND ANDROID AUTO
I suppose we need to define our terms and establish our goalposts. BT integration does not imply Apple or Android service integration; these are different converstaions. I can pair my phone with my car, and the car will work as a headset with wheels and play music from my phone, including media control from the car's MFD. This counts as integration in my book; it may not count in yours. C'est la vie. Also, no need to shout; the acoustics in here are fantastic :)

I definitely am seeing exactly this. It's as though the car is effectively blind directly to the rear.

It seemed the cars danced to the beat of the music that was playing, and I'll be honest - it usually made me laugh. The only time I found it annoying was when I'd show a new person how technologically advanced the Tesla is, and they'd ask why all the cars around us were dancing...oh don't worry about that it's fine :D

The last time I thought dancing cars was gone after 2019.32.2 only to have them reappear a few days later to my utter disgust. Since Ver10 seems like no more dancing cars. Good riddance. Hope I didn't just jinx myself.;)

Other than the entertainment value of dancing cars, I'm curious if anyone has found the visualization of neighboring cars to be useful. (I mean while your car is stopped, not while moving). I think it is cool, but I haven't found it to be really useful. Am I missing some obvious benefit?
