I’ve been testing Tesla’s FSD Beta obsessively for 175 days in Utah and California metropolitan areas, and now in rural Northern Wisconsin and on the roads and Interstate highways in between.
Note: I am still using FSD Beta V10.11.2, because the expected big software update V10.12 has not been offered to me yet. This is typical. I have read about software updates several times now while not having them offered to me until some weeks later.
Our readers have pointed out that FSD Beta is not up to the task in very complex situations like the side streets of Manhattan, NY. I and others have pointed out that, for example, it can’t make an unprotected (no traffic lights) left turn onto a busy street. But how does FSD Beta perform on the highways and byways of the rural countryside?
My wife and I have a lake house on a chain of 29 lakes in Three Lakes, Wisconsin, where we entertain our extended family all summer (see picture above). Three Lakes has a population of 498 and no traffic lights. It is 4 miles from our house. The next nearest town 10 miles away is Eagle River, with a population 1,398 and several stoplights. We do our Walmart shopping in Rhinelander 30 miles away with a population of 8,285.
