    Yes, we started to get it last night, 2.7.77. Just installed it and autosteer works fine. Haven't tried autopark yet.

    Is it worth upgrading to autopilot package ? It seems to me the features like parallel parking may not work well in Hong Kong narrow street.

    AP is not essential but i wouldn't want to have missed being a part of the revolution. Parallel parking is very unlikely to have been useful in hk.

    Just tried out version 7 this afternoon. The key improvement for me are as follows.

    1. More efficient, my average power usage down from 210 to around 175 .. More then 10% improvement!
    2. the touch panel are a lot more responsive !
    3. Aircon run cooler and faster.
    4. The ride are smoother and more powerful overall ..

    On the auto steer side, It did not works too well when I tested it on a highway tonight.. I just don't feel it's very stable yet and it did try to steer itself toward the hard-shoulder and i needed to correct it quickly.... scary ..

    I thought the ride was smoother as well and wondered if it was just me! I didn't read anywhere that the suspension would be improved.

    Agree with taiheadman's comment. tried out auto-steer on tolo harbour from Shatin to TaiPo. Very interesting experience. However, keep your hands on the wheel, as it gets confused when there are other cars cutting in front of it. Also, when exiting from highway, the lines on the road is making it even more confusing.

    I think the autosteer is really great, I tried in tolo Bay and east, north point to siu sai wan, worked great. And I just received notification with new update, anyone knows what is about? And I will wait for tonight to do it.

    Some people have reported in other threads that the parking space needs to be at least 6m long. With the car length at 4.9m, that's about 50cm on each side.

    Has everyone got 7.0 already? Mine still stuck on 6.2 and no way to force it to download.

    My own parking space is underground and has no 3G reception, so for the past day I've been parking overground in a communal space just to keep reception up.

    My car space is also underground. Last Sunday I drove around for about 4 hours to keep the car connected to 3G and got nothing. Then I connected the car to Wi-Fi and 20 minutes later I got the update notification. I know people say it doesn't matter whether you're on Wi-Fi or 3G, so perhaps this is just a coincidence, but you might want to try connecting it to Wi-Fi and see if that helps.
