Today’s 300 mile journey to Norfolk and back gave me a chance to test the latest over-the-air software update 2019.40.2.1. This one was meant to bring more confident automatic lane changes among a few other things.
My experience today was pretty mixed. Navigate on autopilot was not available for the first half of my drive for some reason and the navigate was, but auto lane changes other than the car’s recommended ones weren’t working at all.
On the other hand when it was working navigate on autopilot was much more snappy in recommending a lane change into both a faster and a slower lane. It felt much more like a human driving.
Hopefully we’ll be getting a patch soon. If it was all working it would be very much more functional that when I bought the car six months ago.
Note: in Europe the rules mean we have to confirm autopilot actions unlike in the US.
