This is my first real experience with Autopilot and I was SHOCKED at how little I knew.
Since filming this video I’ve learned the “jiggle” that the Model 3 wants in order to recognize your hand on the wheel. It’s a slight nudge in either direction almost to the point of disrupting the auto-steer function.
The easier solution is, of course, to just rest your hand on the wheel. And whatever you do DO NOT use a piece of fruit to trick it. There’s my PSA for the day.
Let me know what other questions you guys have about this!
