Tesla has just started rolling out its latest version of Navigate on Autopilot via an over-the-air software update to customers in the U.S., that offers a more seamless active guidance experience. The latest version allows the drivers to use Navigate on Autopilot without having to confirm lane changes via the turn stalk.
Drivers can now press the Customize Navigate on Autopilot button in the settings menu to view three additional options i.e. Enable at Start of Every Trip, Require Lane Change Confirmation, and Lane Change Notification.
Selecting Enable at Start of Every Trip allows the drivers to set Navigate on Autopilot to turn on automatically each time a navigation route is entered. Once enabled, anytime a driver is on a highway and uses Autopilot with a location plugged into the navigation bar, the feature will be on by default:
If a driver selects ‘No’ to Require Lane Change Confirmation, lane changes will happen automatically, without requiring a driver to confirm them first. Drivers can elect to get notified about an upcoming lane change by receiving an audible chime as well as a default visual prompt. Additionally, all cars made after August 2017 will also have the option to have their steering wheel vibrate for the alert as well.
These new settings will be available to customers who have purchased Enhanced Autopilot or Full Self-Driving Capability. Canada and other markets will receive the latest Navigate on Autopilot version in the near future as well.
