Often TACC/EAP doesn't detect the correct speed limit and will assume a speed with the driver profile's optional preferred +/-. As an example, on my rural, 1/4 mile driveway, my Model 3 will show 50 mph (i.e., 45+5 mph) in gray. This can not be changed until after TACC or EAP is engaged. When selected, the car immediately accelerates to 50 mph and the driver must quickly flick the right thumb wheel 6+ times to bring the car back to a safe speed. This is an extreme example - but goes to the point that there are many situations where the assumed speed is faster than reasonable and awkward to control. In our town there are many residential and commercial areas with 25 mph speed limits that TACC/EAP assumes to be 35 or 45 mph. It would be safer and more convenient if that grayed out speed remained always adjustable via the right scroll wheel. The driver can then choose to engage the proposed speed - or select a suitable speed before engaging to avoid those panicky post-engagement adjustments.
Is there an official way to submit a Feature or Change request? I've sent emails to Support but only get canned acknowledgments.
