Now I'm confused. Can someone cite a Tesla source that clarifies which M3s were and were not supposed to get smart summon with the v10 upgrade?So, I didn’t buy the full self driving feature when I purchaseD my Tesla model 3, only purchased the autopilot option, but for some reason when i updated to V10, I was able to use the smart summon feature. Wasn’t smart summon part of the full self driving package? How am i able to use smart summon if i never paid for the self driving package in the first place?

Hopefully it’s recognizing pot holes now.In a macadam parking lot SS stopped just short of a 4' X 6' pothole and would not continue. The vertical edge of the hole was about 1 1/2- 2" high and the maximum depth of the hole was about 3". I think the radar saw it as an obstacle.
I originally considered Smart Summon to be using satellite images to generate the planned path shown in the app, but it didn’t make sense why it worked for some lots and not others.
After checking OpenStreetMaps and Google Maps, I’d have to guess the path planner is actually using the available map data and not doing some satellite image lane detection magic. Take the following example where Smart Summon worked perfectly following the lot rows and not cutting across. The one-way data is even available for this lot. Although I didn’t get to test if it follows this.

I checked another lot where it wanted to cut across and found no map data was available for that lot. It’s a small sample size but I’ll continue checking to see if it correlates. Of course, Tesla could be using a different map source or possibly even some internal data. But so far, I doubt the actual satellite images are used for anything other than display
I don't know if most people know this, but it's actually really easy to get a good idea of how well Smart Summon will work in a parking lot you're at without actually going through with the Smart Summon.
You just hit smart summon on the app, and look at the path. If the path is ridiculous then the car is likely going to stutter quite a bit as it tries to figure out a better path itself. If it's a good intelligent path then it's likely going to work well, and might be worth actually testing
I think the radar just saw the far edge of the pot hole and saw it as an obstacle. It did a panic stop from about 2 mph. I heard the tires slip on some of the loose gravel around the pothole. Now you don't want it to do this on the highway.Hopefully it’s recognizing pot holes now.
No way the radar has enough resolution to see the edge of a pothole (it doesn't have enough resolution to tell the difference between an overpass and a truck!). The car recognized it with the cameras or ultrasonics or it just randomly stopped for some other reason.I think the radar just saw the far edge of the pot hole and saw it as an obstacle.
