they had to have something like this in the works, too much grief coming at them, especially when you have idiots like that guy in California who was in the backseat of his car

Makes sense. I noticed a few updates ago that if I was looking away and lane detection would go off it would 'disable certain features until my next drive'. Then the lane detection wouldn't work until the car was was parked.

However the lane detection would work if I activated AP.

my bad, I thought auto pilot was self driving. time for that electrical tape over the lens
It's a little confusing terminology. Most people call 'autopilot' the version that comes free (TACC, Autosteer, driver assistance programs) and FSD the one that is $10k. (And just to make it more confusing, basic AP is essentially self-driving on the highway, with the functions it has....) But I've also seen FSD referred to as 'full AP' or even just AP. I wish they would dump the FSD moniker and just call it 'basic autopilot' (free version) and 'full' or 'advanced autopilot' (pay version).

I just drove 500 miles yesterday on 2021.14.18 and didn't notice a anything different. A lot of the trip was on AP and I was looking out the windshield (and using the steering wheel as a drum) but the nag was still there and fairly prevalent. Maybe Tesla software versions are not sequential. 🤷‍♂️

one way to find out. it's already taped and waiting for me to try it out later

Unless you have the software version that appears to be activated under, your testing is likely not going to prove anything. Let us know how the testing goes after you get the software version where the camera is activated.
