I have always been a driver who keeps his hands on the wheel when I am using Auto Pilot but since the last few updates AP has been difficult to use because it keeps telling me to apply light pressure. So someone suggested adding some fishing weights to one side of the steering wheel. So I went to Walmart and got 2 6 oz led weights and using a tiny bungee cord wrapped around the right side of the steering wheel (on the spoke) and tied so it does not unwind. Then apply a 6 oz weight to each bungee hook and I can drive without touching the wheel and no nags. Now the funny part, if I do hold the wheel I get occasional nags. I think my hands on the wheel counteract the weights!!!!
Anyway some tweaking of placement and how I hold the wheel should sort that out. (one hand on wheel and weights on other side of wheel).
So I have my own Auto Pilot Buddy for about $3. :)
