    HW2/AP2 all the bells and whistles

    I don't have summon feature on my Tesla IPhone app, and I'm not sure it still works on the key fob?! Has it been deactivated w all the fuss on getting AP rolled out?

    Anyone can let me know if it's still active or where I can get quick lesson I searched the threads and my cars manual and no such luck.

    Thanks so much love the community here

    Note:

    • Before you can use Summon, you must enable it via the SUMMON setting…
    • Use the new HomeLink auto-open/close feature and enable… if you are parking in a garage and need to operate the garage door after activating Summon.
    • Model S may not detect certain obstacles including those that are very narrow (e.g., bikes), lower than the fascia, or hanging from the ceiling. As such, Summon requires that you continually monitor your vehicle’s movement and surroundings while it is in progress, and that you remain prepared to stop the vehicle at any time using your key fob.
    • Only use Summon on flat driveways.
    • You must stay in proximity to your vehicle and continually monitor and maintain control of it when using the feature. You should only use this feature on private property.

    My understanding is summon does not currently exist for HW2 cars.

    Summon is an advanced (and lower priority) Autopilot feature and is not yet available for AP2 cars. Hell, AP2 cars just received Autosteer and it's limited to a top speed of 45mph (for now), so Summon's probably a bit of a way's off. Especially the advanced Summon with steering and all that jazz.

    What works on AP2:
    • Smart Cruise Control to 80 MPH
    • Steering on highways to 55 MPH
    • Steering in cities to 35 MPH (except it tries to kill you all the time)
    • Parallel Parking
    • Forward collision warning (not automatic braking)
    • Auto headlights
    What isn't working that AP1 has:
    • Autosteer at highway speeds
    • Automatic lane change with turn signal
    • Blind spot detection
    • Automatic Wipers
    • Automatic High Beams
    • Auto emergency braking
    • Summon
    • Fix the crazy wiggling of lane lines on the display
    • Reading speed limit signs
    • Auto perpendicular parking
    • Lane Departure Warning
    What isn't working that they have promised as EAP:
    • Auto highway exit
    • Auto lane change on highway
    • Enhanced summon

    Wait. AP2 can't read speed limit signs yet? Is that a complex feature? I honestly thought that was something that was available from the start with AP2.

    Thanks gearchruncher this is a really good list.

    I've been looking for such a list for a while. It took me a long time of searching just to figure out if the wipers were enabled. Is there anywhere online where a continually updated list is posted?

    That is one of the few features AP1 had at launch. It's also not that simple to do and was based entirely on Mobileye processing (other Mobileye equipped cars can do it, too.)

    Mine seems to read speed limit signs, occasionally.

    I don't believe it's reading the signs. It's likely just posting the speed limit based on GPS data. My son's Mazda does the same thing.

    I have a bmw and lexus prev which did same thing. Its hardcoded into gps. The true telltale sign is if u can find a recently changed speed limit sign

    Well, our car changes the displayed speed limit exactly as we pass the sign and occasionally misses signs that are hidden by trees, trucks, etc.

    Summons at 45mph would be way more fun. :p

    I was talking with a Tesla technician the other day, and he said that the Summon feature is going to be improved to the more advanced "Burrow" function. Apparently, the car (or several if working together) can be used, in softer soils, to help out with Elon's tunneling initiative. I have to hand it to Elon, he's always looking to improving even the fleet that is out there! Come to think of it, aren't there some video's of the 'beta' burrow function yet?

    You have an AP1 car (from your signature).

    Tip for AP1 users (and maybe AP2 with the promised 8.1 upgrade?): Summon gets disabled on some updates. If you can't find the feature or the fob stopped working (US cars), go into the settings and re-enable it. This one drove me nuts for a few weeks thinking I was screwing up the button sequence before I figured it out.
