Tesla OTA 2021.16.2.10 Software Update May Be Rolling Out In Europe

Tesla occasionally will roll out software updates just for the European vehicles, just like they recently did in the 2020.12.11.2 update earlier this month. And now it MAY appear that Tesla is doing so again for Norway (and/or other European countries) in this latest 2020.16.2.10 software update that was detected by Teslafi. A Tesla Model S in Hordaland, Norway was detected with this update.

The most recent software update that was widely rolled out was the 2020.16.2.1, so we suspect this COULD actually be a glitch that Teslafi detected as 2020.16.2.10 update, since the followup update should have been 2020.16.2.2 or 2020.16.3. But teslaFi did tag the official Tesla software update version as 2020.16.2.10 5f14d62, which is new.

As for the most recent update for 2020.16.2.1, if you have not received this update, you might be looking forward to these features. None are these features are major nor are they new, unless it’s for tesla vehicles that are still behind on much older software versions.

Tesla 2020.16.2.1 Release Note

Navigate on Autopilot (Beta)

Navigate on Autopilot intelligently suggests lane changes to keep you on your route, and makes adjustments so you don’t get stuck behind slow cars or trucks.

Enable Navigate on Autopilot by going to Controls > Autopilot and first enabling Autosteer. For each route where the feature is available, you have the option of enabling or disabling it by pressing the NAVIGATE ON AUTOPILOT button located in your Navigation turn list.

Once enabled for your route, Navigate on Autopilot can be activated on controlled-access roads by moving the gear lever fully down twice in quick succession. While activated, a single blue line will indicate the path ahead, keeping your car in the lane. Gray lines may appear to indicate upcoming lane changes based on your route or to suggest opportunities for you to move to a faster lane. When active, Navigate on Autopilot will also guide your car toward highway interchanges and exits based on your destination.

Adjust how aggressive Navigate on Autopilot makes lane changes to keep your car at the set speed by changing the SPEED BASED LANE CHANGES setting which can be found in Controls > Autopilot > CUSTOMIZE NAVIGATE ON AUTOPILOT.

Note: Before this feature can be enabled, camera calibration will be required, and the latest version of Navigation maps must be downloaded via WiFi.
