    I have the MC2 chip with Enhanced AP. I notice the AP works well if there are clear stripped lanes as you have on freeways but without those the AP doesn’t have a reference marker. Anyone else experience this issue? Wonder how this will be overcome as many roads don’t have lane stripes for AP or FSD to read.

    It's pretty clear Autopilot software currently has explicit requirements of seeing at least one lane line to allow activation. If the lane lines disappear while Autopilot is still active, the neural network can still infer where the lane should be and follow the road.

    So there's a simple fix to "overcome" this limitation by just removing the clear line requirement and allow Autopilot to activate on inferred lines.

    However, Tesla probably wouldn't do this before the rewrite as the accuracy of the neural network currently inferring with just the main camera isn't good enough.
