    Just saw Elon's post on twitter about a new update coming next month. Does anyone have an idea of what additional updates other than AP updates might be coming out?

    Where the heck is the new kernel and the "real" 8.1? Elon just can't be believed.

    Possibly new kernel and web browser? Although those updates might still take a bit longer than a month.

    But only for AP2 cars and so it begins that AP1 falls behind: "HW2. HW1 doesn't have enough sensors and computing power."

    Looks like elon will fail to fulfill another promise. EAP being no where to be found.
    But atleast AP1 full parity in performance is coming after only 9 months.

    Wish I read or knew this before I bought my Model X with 2.0 hardware.

    Apparently we "might" get our rain-sensing wipers in June, too. Only 6 months after we were told we'd have them! Sweet!

    I honestly thought there would be a few more updates for AP1, on/off ramp, a better summon, and maybe red light/stop sign detection. Sigh.

    I predicted this in another thread months ago. Sadly, this is no surprise.

    Ugh! I'm driving the best and safest car on the planet. So what if updates don't come as quickly as suggested or hoped (never "promised").

    They will come eventually. As has been said before, better to wait a while longer for a good product than right away for one that's not ready.

    Ugh!

    I for one am just glad that we've managed to solve all the big problems in the world, so we have all this free time to sit around and moan that the web browser in our cars is too slow or we have to manually initiate the wiping of our windshields.

    Because, I mean, it would be kinda awkward if that's what we were doing while things were still totally messed up.

    Fun fact, ramp changes were tested with APv1 hardware at it as far back as last July. They have yet to make it into production though as you've seen.

    And even more fun facts, mobile eye hardware can detect a multitude of signs including stop signs and red lights. But that hasn't been released either.

    The stop sign hiding in the bushes or behind the branch is the problem. It really needs to be 100%

    Here are the other main points from recent tweets Elon Musk on Twitter

    [new kernel] Almost there, plus much improved web browser

    [coast to coast AP demo] Still on for end of year. Just software limited. Any Tesla car with HW2 (all cars built since Oct last year) will be able to do this.

    [jerkiness at hwy speeds is unsettling] Yeah, control algorithm is safe, but unpleasant. New one is even safer, but super smooth.

    Hopefully [sic] June for [perpendicular parking and rainsensors] too

    Model 3, Model X & Model S will all have same level of Autopilot capability. It's just a matter of refining the vision & control software.

    Something cool for sure [for March 31 reservation holders]​

    I take the tweet to mean there will be further refinements to Autosteer, maybe addressing all the unease some people have felt. Perhaps full AP1 parity even?

    I have no doubt there will be FSD by years end.

    There's people who purchased and people who leased. I can imagine the people who leased being a bit salty that 1/6th is the lease is over and still not full AP1 parity.

    Bummer...... "almost there" sounds like "someday we'll get there."
    At least with other promises, he puts a target on them, even if unreliable.
