How do you activate FSD?

I had the same issue, got the update yesterday and had no option to turn it on in the autopilot tab. Put an address into the navigation and then you should see the option to use full self driving in the autopilot tab.
Wait, do you have to have an address in and then go to the menus where autopilot is and then flip a button on each time you want the FSD Beta to be active? Wow, Tesla needs some instructions with this...

Also, still can't view my sentry live cameras... I've got the option turned on in the car and my app is the latest update, but it just times out while trying to load the camera feed...
I got the switch finally. 2020 Model 3 SR+
I'm not sure exact solution, but I've tried extra these that might help.
- clean all cameras
- drive more 10 miles
- re-calibrate camera [Service > Calibrate Cameras] it took a while

Interesting, I thought about calibrating my cameras again...

Thanks for letting me know what it looks like! My screen certainly doesn't look like that... I've got the software update pending again thanks to the service center. I'll probably redownload while on WiFi this time and see what happens, if that doesn't work I'll calibrate cameras and see what works...
Same boat for me. Hoping this trickles through soon. Have done all but the camera recalibrate but will wait to see others suggestions and feedback.
So I did not have to recalibrate the cameras. As others have said, about 24 hours later it just showed up on it's own and works fine (I mean works like a 14 year old driving the car, but works as expected, lol).

I was worried I screwed it up because I had them push the software update again to me, but I installed that again last night and it still works fine this morning. FSD makes me very embarrassed with traffic around, it slows down way before an intersection and boy oh boy is it slow to actually pull away and make a right or left turn, but for empty roads and side streets, it's just so awesome to see how much the car is actually seeing and how well it's doing. We're years away from it being as good as AP on interstates and from it being a "turn on each time you get in the car" type of thing... but now I believe it'll happen for at least 90% of the cases, probably in the next 3 years. I'm impressed.

Yep next day it finally clicked in no fuss. Don’t have anything to complain about as it’s much more then I previously had so I appreciate the opportunity. Rather impressive I must say clearly some over the top talent in that software department. Future updates will be a joy for sure!

Hi, I have an early 19' M3 DM, and I installed 10.5 FSD Beta. I am wondering if anyone has found a way to enable FSD? My autopilot options have not changed, and I do not see any additional terms to agree to. There is no Toggle to turn it on, and everything seems to be working as it did before the 10.5 update.

I have tried power cycling it from the screen, Resetting with the thumbwheels, driving for a bit, leaving it alone to go to sleep, and charging it for a while.

Any ideas, or has anyone figured out what I might be doing wrong?
