Re: AAOS 3.1.9

First featurette found today, you can no longer enable Pilot Assist / Adaptive Cruise Control whilst braking. Took me a while to work out what was going on, I have never seen the unavailable message before. When entering a 30mph limit I normally brake and then at the exact moment I hit 31mph I hit ...

Re: AAOS 3.1.9

It took Tesla a decade to perfect its car software with stable OTA updates. Google with AAOS is still years behind and needs more time to mature.

Re: AAOS 3.1.9
