Yep, interesting thought about the autopilot defroster, I will check into that.

You may want to check into the radar unit on AP cars as well. I was told that they are heated. In light of how easily they get caked with snow, I find that hard to believe. They certainly are not heated enough to effectively prevent snow and ice buildup. It would be interesting to see what you can learn about whether or not they are, in fact, heated, and if they are, how much.
