How long does it take for Autopilot to be enabled?

I picked up my radar-less Model 3 LR last weekend and it has 168 miles on it so far. How long does it take for Autopilot to be enabled so I can turn it on? I've noticed when I drive on simple long segments of highways, the AP symbols do not turn blue to enable AP.

I want to say when I picked mine up last year, it took around 25-30 miles for calibration to complete.

First, check to make sure autosteer is enabled in settings -> autopilot.
After that if you have the grey steering wheel icon near your speed, double tapping down on the gear selector should engage AP.

Hope this helps!

I have a 2020 M3 that I bought last September. The cameras, the tire pressure sensors and the AP were all calibrated within maybe
20 miles. But since you have the new radar-less system, it may take longer

I picked up my new car last week and autopilot was enabled within 10 miles after leaving the service center.

It helps if you drive on well-marked roads for the calibration.
