Oddly enough, when a Tesla accelerates at a barrier, someone dies: Autopilot report lands

James Wright

I own a tesla, their hands on wheel detection is suspect at best. Many times I get the warning even though my hands are on the wheel. For them to try and cast aspersions because hands on the wheel were not detected is wrong. This is just them throwing FUD at the problem.

Re: Meanwhile in France

I visited the page and google translate say's:

"A 200GB data envelope with reduced throughput, without the risk of overcharging".

So it would seem unlimited data, but with throttling after 200gb. Still a great deal at 30 euros.

Re: DAB Bashing

I have DAB in my car, I thought "great, now I get to try out DAB". However it's horrible, it keeps cutting out and in again. At least the FM signal is analog and when the signal degrades you can still hear it. With DAB it's all or nothing (digital!). If they think of shutting down FM I will complain loudly. If they sort out the signal issues then I would be happy.

Re: Does this
