I tried to read all 10,000,0000 posts about v7...really I did. :)

I did not see much speculation or information about V7 and any navigation updates. Are there any? Anything significant? Will we have to wait until V7.1 for USABLE navigation and anti-range anxiety updates?

Have to agree. There's a lot of exciting info on AP and I'm anxious to try it all out but, to me at least, trusting my navigation system is so much more important on a day-to-basis. I can't imagine a scenario where I would let AP follow the navigation directions and feel relaxed about it. Hopefully they fixed it or disassociated it from autopilot.

I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think the 7.0 version of Autopilot will do any following of Nav directions. AFAIK, Tesla hasn't said anything about connecting those dots - v7.0 will just follow the current lane until you tell it to switch lanes or disengage it.

I *do* expect to see Autopilot following Nav eventually - but first it has to mature into something that can change lanes, or at least prompt you to tell it when it can change lanes.
