I got a used 2018 Model 3 LR AWD a little over 4 months ago. This car came with EAP and HW2.5, and to put it simply the autopilot was horrendous. Did it work? Yes, so long as the lines were crystal clear and the road quality was good. Have you ever driven down a road that has a bus stop area where the curbline gets stretched the width of a bus so it does not stop traffic behind it? Everytime the highway would open up like that for an exit or on-ramp lane the car would jerk the wheel to the right to center the car in the double wide lane, and i mean JERK the wheel.
I am now driving on 2020.48.26 with FSD and HW3.0, and i activated autopilot on the 45mph road that i use to get to work. It has 2 lanes each side, center turning lane, stoplights, and those bus stop areas that i mentioned above. Autopilot (not FSD beta) handled the road incredibly well. It honestly blew me away how well it handled. The steering was gentle, acceleration was not jumpy, flowed through the stoplight intersections and maintained a straight path, and most importantly did NOT try to center the vehicle in the double wide bus stop areas like it used to prior. Stopping for a stoplight works every single time, and accelerates once light turns green. Road lines are very clear.
Pretty unbelievable improvements IMO. What are your experiences?
