Just received 2019.16.2 and for the first time it includes navigate on autopilot in Europe.
Thanks to a new European law this update now limits the turn indicator to 5 seconds. This makes lane changing nothing short of dangerous.
Now when changing lanes with navigate on autopilot or just general autopilot if the lane change is not completed within five seconds the car returns back to the previous lane. If you are doing a moderate speed i.e. 50 miles an hour plus the return to the previous lane is very sudden. This sudden movement not only causes distress to the driver and passengers in the vehicle but if anybody was close behind you overtaking and you suddenly return to the lane your left it will no doubt cause a collision no matter how alert you are. If the police were watching you would definitely be pulled over.
Those of you in America without this five second rule will not experience this behaviour.
I sincerely hope changes come soon because for now it’s not really usable, even in its present beta format.
