    Q1. Several times the cursor on the map marking the position of the vehicle disappears. It could be that I pressed something that made it go away. Other than stopping and shutting down is there anyway to get it back on the fly?

    Q2. In exiting out of AutoPilot by turning the steering wheel there is a rather violent jerking motion. It exits OK by pressing the brake or lifting the shifter stalk. Is this normal?

    Q3. Is there a list of Voice Commands?

    AM - yes there is a circular icon on the left of the screen with a compass needle pointing in the direction you are moving, tapping that will bring you back to the pointer marking your current position. Tapping it twice will render the map north up.

    Q2. In exiting out of AutoPilot by turning the steering wheel there is a rather violent jerking motion. It exits OK by pressing the brake or lifting the shifter stalk. Is this normal?

    AM - I would make a service center appointment, I get a slight nod but nothing I would describe as violent. There would be a bug in the software or hardware that you should get checked out for peace of mind.

    Q3. Is there a list of Voice Commands?

    AM - I found this on another thread on the forum

    ===NAVIGATE===
    "Navigate to <place>"
    “Where is the nearest Starbucks?”
    "Drive to the Kettleman City Supercharger"
    "Take me to a movie theater"
    “Drive home” (if you configured a home address)
    "Navigate to work" (if you configured a work address)
    "Cancel Trip"

    ===PHONE===
    “Call <name>”
    "Dial <name>"

    ===MUSIC===
    “Play <song/artist/genre>”
    “Play Smooth Jazz”
    "Listen to Rolling Stones"

    ===MISC===
    “bug report”
    "ho ho ho"

    Good luck.

    I have the same issue with coming of auto pilot when turning the wheel. I only use break pedal now.

    I wish they would update the software so that pressing the blue steering wheel icon on the screen would take it out of auto pilot

    It'd be nice if there was another way you could cancel auto steer without canceling cruise control. But, currently, turning the wheel is the only way. If you tap the brake or push up on the shifter, it cancels both.

    When I turn the steering when to exit auto-steer (which I do only when I need to override it suddenly) there is some resistance to the movement of the wheel because otherwise too gentle a pull would do it. That resistance results in a slight jerk. I think this is normal behavior. If I am planning to exit autosteer I use the lever or the brake pedal, and then I can re-engage TACC if I want to.

    Agreed. That would be simpler.
