    Hi,

    Is there a way to enable the regular cruise control?
    Currently HW2 software doesn't allow you to enable cruise control above 75, but I prefer doing 79 when possible.

    Thank you

    My cruise control on my AP2 S60D works normally. No EAP/FSD functions, just regular cruise control.

    I think it used to work for me before the auto-pilot update(last 2).
    After the update, 1 pull -> cruise control with "Follow", 2 pulls Auto Steer if available.

    There have been a few cars that had ACC but allowed you to engage a conventional "blind" cruise control over the years.

    Tesla has never done that, though - AP equipped cars are without any cruise control when they can't see enough for TACC, and presumably that means no cruise faster than TACC allows either.

    Having two versions of cruise control in the same car, one which responds to traffic and one which doesn't invites confusion and an accident due to having the wrong one engaged...

    TAAC now allows 80 MPH if you got the latest update (many people got it this weekend). So you can go 79 MPH either already, or very shortly.

    TAAC on AP1 allows up to 90 MPH, so the assumption is that Tesla is working up to at least that.

    That's the difference. I don't have EAP, so no auto steer and follow for me. Just regular dumb cruise. After the update you probably lost that and got the enhanced cruise

    So "enhanced" it detects overpasses as potetial obstacles and hard breaks the car in the middle of the highway.
    Anyone knows a way to disable it?
