Perhaps others can help me understand why AP is programmed to act like this?
Proceeding on a 3 lane highway, Navigate on AP in the middle lane. Nearing the exit, the car needs to move over to the rightmost exit lane.
Let it do it's thing. Manually, I'd get over sooner than AP does. The distance to the exit gets into the tenths of a mile count down. Will it get over? Getting close. Going speed limit +5 mph. Traffic behind already in the exit lane going faster and catching up quickly not knowing AP is about to lane shift over to the exit lane.
AP gets over at the last moment and the approaching vehicle gets the surprise and I get the dirty looks. What's more, the turn signal triggers virtually simultaneously when the car changes lanes.
Help me understand why my car doesn't get over a bit sooner to avoid this frequent issue? And shouldn't the turn signal lead the lane shift a bit sooner?
This is a familiar exit. Sure, I can use the turn signal and get over sooner on my own. A few months ago the car wouldn't slow down adequately on this exit itself. Now it slows to 40mph so that's a welcome improvement.
