    This morning on my usual daily commute, for the first time I got the message "autosteer limited to 60 MPH" on a section of I-465 in Indianapolis. The speed limit is 55, but traffic generally goes 65-70. Driving 60 will get me run over. I thought that autosteer was only limited to 5 MPH over the limit on surface streets, not limited access highways. Anyone else see this change? This makes autopilot essentially worthless for me on my daily commute. I have been using autopilot on this route since it was originally released in 2015.

    Hmm, is the highway divided by a median or barrier? That seems to be the criteria around here. There's some "city" streets here that have concrete dividers and 45mph limits and I can set Autosteer to 90mph.

    I had a similar "that's weird" moment yesterday. Same thing really. A road that changes from divided to barrier, used to let me AP at 70, but yesterday it started to slow unexpectedly. It might have been were the road went to a barrier. I will check again today.

    The road does have a large central concrete barrier. Later I noted the same behavior on I-65 south of Indy. Large median but speed limited to 70 MPH (65 speed limit) The strange thing is that this has never happened before and I have had no recent software updates.

    Since no one else appears to be having this issue on divided highways, I will contact my service center to see if I can get an answer.

    Problem solved. I rebooted both the main touchscreen and the instrument cluster monitor and now the limited access highways are allowing me to set whatever speed I wish for autopilot.

    I got yelled at yesterday by AP1 even tho I was resting my left hand on the steering wheel while AP1 was doing the driving. This is new to me. True, I wasn't squeezing the steering wheel but I was not expecting the stern talking to. Thankfully it did not warn me again and drove us most of the way home.
