What's new in the 2020.36 update

Here’s what’s new compared to the previous version, 2020.32.2:

  • Green Traffic Light Chime. A chime will play when the traffic light you are waiting for turns green. If you are waiting behind another car, the chime will play once the car advances unless Traffic-Aware Cruise Control or Autosteer is active. The chime takes a bit to play after the light turns green. Curious to see if it would still play if you get going. Here’s a video showing the new feature:
  • Speed ​​Assist Improvements. Speed Assist now leverages your car’s cameras to detect speed limit signs to improve the accuracy of speed limit data on local roads. Detected speed limit signs will be displayed in the driving visualization and used to set the associated Speed Limit Warning.
  • Cruise Set Speed Improvements. Quickly adjust the Traffic-Aware Cruise Control or Autosteer set speed to the current speed by simply tapping the cluster speedometer. You can still tap the speed limit sign to adjust the set speed to the speed limit.

  • Autosteer Stop Sign and Stop Light Warning. Your car may warn you in some cases if it detects that you are about to run a stop sign or stop light while Autosteer is in use. This is not a substitute for an attentive driver and will not stop the car
