    I've seen dozens of fairly straight highways and streets AP videos but none of someone going through a round about..

    I have a 2015 85D and AP continuously releases on sweeping turns to the left - very dangerous. I can't imagine it working on a tight Round-a-bout

    FOV (Field of View) of sensors is not wide enough for the relatively short radius of roundabouts....among other challenges of the system.

    I have tried it about 4 times in my neighborhood for fun. If I am tracking a car I can make it through about 2/3rds the way. If not it cuts off on the first turn opening. I have tried with a 3 car length distance setting, but as I am writing this I want to go back out and track with a 1 car length distance and see if that helps.
