    Yeah, I'm expecting to see a tweet from Elon today or tomorrow either announcing they need more time or the date it will start rolling out.

    I think they'll hit it, but it might not have everything that's expected.

    I'm still expecting that they'll be 3-6 months late in reaching feature parity. But, at least with AP 2.0 the feature will work properly. So you guys will have that.

    I haven't heard much feedback on the features already added to AP 2.0. Like how is the blindspot monitoring working? AP 2.0 owners don't seem to be contributing as much as AP 1.0 owners did when things were added. Or I'm simply not seeing it.

    I'm thinking this update will bring TACC and most of the other small stuff. My bet is that summon and autosteer are probably a ways off yet.

    You guys forget that all Tesla announcements and due dates are in EST (Elon Standard Time). EST and our rudimentary traditional date/time system do not function the same. Days in EST can be anywhere from 24-96 hours long depending on how feature testing goes. So you see, nothing is ever late. We're just too simple-minded to understand the new time standard Tesla has invented...

    Haven't noticed the blindspot monitoring doing much.

    What blindspot monitoring!? Picked up my new tesla on Friday and running latest version. 4 hours of driving today and noticed no such blind spot monitoring feature.

    I don't think there is any blind-spot monitoring going on right now. It seems just like a fun animation for you to look at that shows when the car's various sensors are picking up something that the car is tracking and mapping.

    That's what AP1 cars do... and that's what they call BSD.

    Blind Spot Warning short demo video | Tesla Motors

    What we have now is nothing like what is shown in the video in the post above. What we have now shows all the sensors around the car and has no audible warnings, etc. it is nothing like a BSD system.

    So everyone hopes. People are growing impatient. :)

    Picked up Wed, guy told me end of this week we'd see the roll out. Consistent with what TM has said, and was before the EM tweet, so not sure what they've been telling employees but seems they have some information.
