    Do you have an EAP car? If so, I do not think that feature is enabled yet. It should be enabled on AP cars.

    Should work with AP1 (at least is always has for me). From the reports, I would be surprised if it is enabled in AP2.

    I have MX AP2 17.5.28 and had an opportunity to try changing lanes under AP but it didn't work. Can't wait to use AP2 like lucky AP1 owners.

    Do you have Auto Lane Change enabled in Settings? It is a separate option, located to the right of the Autosteer settings.

    My understanding is that feature will work on AP2 X'S when EAP is enabled.

    Follow what Mirrson stated.

    I'm not sure if it's fully active on AP2 yet, but I can confirm AP1 works. Once it's enabled, you're in autosteer, you just need to fully hit the indicator. I've noticed that it will need to register the lane (blue lines along the lane) to know that it can change. I tried it on an unmarked road and it doesn't respond, which I think is a good thing.

    I don't have my car right now, but that is odd. I remember it being in the same screen, top right corner. What do you have there? What software & hardware version are you on?

    If Tesla hasn't enabled the feature on AP2 cars yet, they presumably won't have the option on the center console screen either.

    As others have mentioned, the feature is only on HW1 cars so far. I have a loaner and it has the option for Auto Lane Change in the top right corner of the Driver Assistance settings. I should have my HW2 car back soon and I'm sure it doesn't have that option because it hasn't been enabled for that hardware yet. The loaner has 17.6.15 but I'm sure the option has been there a year or more for HW1 cars.

    Just saw on Tesla Forum some are reporting new update to 17.7.2 which now includes Auto Park.

    Anyone here got this update.

    I still have 17.5.28 and am anxious for latest.

    Just got back from a short trip on 17.7.2. Going out, I had the option to activate AP on a 2 lane local road but only when going less than 35 mph. It worked OK but going around tight bends is not too good yet. On return trip, the option to activate AP wasn't available. It said that AP was not activated anymore. Not sure why.

    The new version is suppose to allow parallel parking only. Didn't have opportunity to try yet.

    Yes to add you have to have the option turned on separately to work. Note, when you do and a lane change is available you'll be able to tell on the display. Instead of just drawing the 2 lanes around you that you are locked on to (the blue lines), it'll also draw lanes available out to the left, right, or both and thinner grey/dark lines in addition.

    Regarding 17.7.2
    "option for Auto Lane Change in the top right corner of the Driver Assistance settings" does not exist yet. Features for summons and perpendicular auto-park not yet either.
