Today I received 2019.16.2. As usual after an update I did a touchscreen reboot as well as power-down for 3 minutes and then stepped on the brake to turn the car back on.
The first thing I noticed with the new animation was that it seemed to have to re-learn a few things. First no vehicles were showing up on the screen around me at all, then I had cars behind and in front of me spinning like a top at a stop light. After about 15 minutes of driving everything was back to normal except with the new animations.
I live in a rural area and there are a lot of roads around here that show up with no speed limit at all on the screen or when the speed limit changes it takes forever for the change to show up on the screen. The thing that really came to my attention after this update is that isn't happening any more.
There is one particular road that I drive almost daily and when driving south to north the speed limit changes from 35mph to 45mph. In the past I was a good quarter mile past the first sign that indicated the change before it would change on the screen. Today it changed 50 to 100 feet before the first speed limit sign as if the car was reading the sign, and it wasn't just that road. It seems to be every road around me that I've noticed a slow reaction to in the past. Roads that never showed a speed limit at all on the screen do now once I've passed a speed limit sign.
Coincidence, or is the car finally reading speed limit signs? It certainly wasn't in the update notes.
