Tesla owners raging about AP on version 2018.48

Lots of Tesla owners reporting AP on 2018.48 is great.

“This is literally the first time I felt like my car can actually drive itself.”

“I feel like it now handles curves perfectly.”

“This update, even with AP2.5 hardware, made me really hopeful and optimistic about FSD. I didn’t really enjoy my NoAP experience too much before.”

We haven’t really had a chance to fully try it yet, but we’re very excited after reading all these comments :D

As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.

  • AP 2.5 - Autopilot hardware released after August 2017
  • FSD - Full Self-Driving
  • NoAP - Navigate on Autopilot

  • EOY - End of Year
