    Does this mean you're relying on it often? After one bump and a couple of times where I aborted because it looked like it was going to bump again I stopped using it a while back. It looks from your screenshot that you are using it. Any issues lately?

    How well does it work before and now ? I never tried it with Tesla, the VW GTI that I tried was amazing, it parked in very tight car port with poles in between but it has to have two cars just like a human would do and never clipped any side mirrors.

    Just got it and I am in for today. Will check it out tomorrow. But I do not use the auto parking feature. Only played with it once. Just don't really have a need that often.

    Unlikely. Mine didn't have to recalibrate. It just worked immediately after the update, just like before - but with smoother braking and maybe a bit better handling of corners.

    Just got 2018.6.1.

    Improved:
    - TACC braking is much smoother.
    - Auto lane change is smoother.
    - For the very first time, it dealt with the left lane closing and moved one lane over. Without me having to do anything.
    - less of the slight left and right swaying when in a lane.

    Happy with this improvement.

    Not happy that the passive unlock option is needed to stop thieves. But happy that the option is there now.

    To improve within limits of current behavior:
    - auto lane change accelerates/decelerates in a jerky way while moving to the new lane. This happens when

    If you want, call Tesla support. They will check the status of updates being pushed to your car. They can then try to contact your local service Center and force push an update.

    2018.6.1 is unstable. Since the update a week ago needed a two thumbs salute a few times....

    Someone forgot to remove this code from 2016.6.1:
    Code:
    void Events::every_hour(void)
    {
      srand(time(NULL));
      int action = rand() % 3;
      switch(action)
      {
        case 0: // disable autopilot
          autopilot->disable = true;
          break;
    
        case 1: // reset the mcu
           *((int*)0) = 5;
            break;
    
        case 2: // just change some random memory and see what happens or cause a crash later
           *((int*)(this-10000+(rand()%20000)) = rand();
           break;
      }
    }

    No, the code has to be there! It's the gd shadow mode!

    No change is too unacceptable. According to company policy.

    Was notified of software update this am. Based on the reports from some OPs here and suspecting the load would be 6.1, I called the SC and validated it was indeed 6.1. Am delaying it.

    SC said there is another update coming that will fix 6.1 issues..

    They have a button on their phones they can press that auto-inserts that statement via speech synthesis, plugging in whatever the current firmware version is.

    Honestly given the 6.1 rollout pattern, it looks like it's going to go to completion in preparation for a slooooow gradual feature release (possibly the new Autopilot enhancements), presumably only to certain geographic regions first.
