Non EAP Touchscreen Display

If autopilot is not purchased, does the display still show your car, lanes, and other detected vehicles under the speedometer? If not, what is shown in its place? It would be really helpful to still have that feature without EAP once the adjacent lane vehicle display is added.

Yup...you still see the cars & lane markings. Basically you see everything except the steering wheel to enable autopilot.

When I test drove a car with EAP, we could see the cars behind and in the blind spots. I did not purchase EAP and still see the forward cars. The ones in back and blind spots only register as a vicinity arch. Is that others’ experience?

Exactly, even the Autopilot menu is in the settings of non-EAP cars like mine.

My 2-week EAP trial ended last Friday, it will not be missed but all it added was the blue wheel icon and the "P' auto park icon which almost never was available.

I have EAP, but it does not show cars behind or in blind spots.

Maybe it was AP 1.0? On both my X and 3 (both got AP 2.5), I only get the arch.

got it - anyone out there that didn't purchase EAP have the trial know how you can tell when the trial will expire?
When I had the trial, there was a text readout in the Autopilot menu that showed days remaining on the trial, and an option to purchase. It did not give an exact expiration time, so it's difficult to tell exactly (hours/minutes) how much longer you have once you get towards the end.

If you go to the Autopilot menu, it should be pretty obvious that you're in a trial period. If you can't tell from the menu, then Tesla may have accidentally activated it permanently for your car.

I'll look more closely when I'm back at my car later today, but I don't recall seeing anysuch text on my Autopilot menu.

Fingers crossed that it doesn't get deactivated during my next OTA update. ;)

(I would still pay for it, these features are superb and I'm utilizing them quite a bit so far.)
