    This is yet another, what you may call it, "hidden feature". People who use it find it very useful and I hope that those who don't start using it when you need it. Here's how:

    This feature is "hidden" on page 51 of the owner's manual.

    Right. And some people see the button every day when they go to Controls panel but just don't know what it does.

    "Hidden feature" does not mean a feature that other cars don't have. It also doesn't mean that you can't find it. Some people never looked for it or didn't know what it was. So, to them it was "hidden".

    Not to get too negative on your game of trying to get more video views by using provocative language to describe a standard and well documented feature, but by that rationale the directions to the Eiffel Tower are "hidden" from me because I've never bothered to look for them.

    By that same logic autosteer is hidden because some people never look through the settings to find it to enable it.

    Why are you guys disagreeing with a guy making helpful YouTube videos? Cut him some slack. I appreciate he put effort into this since he likes Teslas.

    Agree, but people are commenting because it's kind of ridiculous, come on. Hey everyone look at the video I made about the "hidden" fact that the volume goes to 11, not 10! So hidden! Just corny that's all. Just being real.

    Because 17.17.4 is the first public version where this feature is available for AP2 cars. AP1 cars have had this feature for a long time now.

    Next new-old feature to (hopefully) appear in the release notes soon - automatic wiper speed. What I'm really hoping for is the first actually enhanced feature as compared to AP1 - blind spot detection that actually works. With the number of cameras on AP2 vehicles, they should be able to get it at least on par with the Nissan Altima I recently rented when traveling, now let's hope they have the mirror blind spot detection LED in the AP2 cars.

    he's being slammed because the post is borderline spam, a video of little value placed only to promote clicks on his video

    I guess, so he might make like $2.00 a month for all the Tesla owners clicking on it? Probably cost him more in time than he will ever make off it.

    I liken this post to all the media reports of sharks being in the ocean, wow! I wonder if they know that snakes could be in the grass or that bears live in the woods.

    +octane if you look at kort677's other posts on this forum you'll easily figure out that he's trolling most of the posts. That's OK. When you post stuff on the Internet you expect those people to be there. They usually don't add any value to anything themselves.

    As far as my video is concerned, I've gotten many people thanking me for exposing this feature to them because they really didn't know about it. I didn't know about that feature for about a year. So, to me it was a "hidden" feature. Not everyone has to share my point of view on that. I'm just here to help those who want it.

    $0. If you look at my channel - it is not monetized. And even if it was - what's your point? If I bring value to people with my videos - why wouldn't I get paid? If you don't find my videos helpful or entertaining - don't watch them. But a lot of people do and there is no reason why I shouldn't be compensated for my work. But I am not. I do it because I like it.
