FSD v12.4.1 Roll Out to a Select few Normal Tesla owners, Ditches the Steering Wheel Nag

Hands Off the Wheel? Tesla's FSD v12.4.1 Ditches the 'Nag'

Tesla’s long-awaited FSD (Supervised) v12.4.1 update is finally hitting the road for some lucky drivers. The big deal? You may be able to take your hands off the wheel – at least for a bit.

Early adopters like Chuck Cook are stoked to try the new supervision system that replaces Tesla’s much-maligned steering wheel nag, “Here it comes… Supervised FSD v12.4.1 is downloading as I type!”

So how does it work? (Tesla FSD v12.4 has Started to Roll out to Employees, No Steering Wheel nag),i nstead of shaking the steering wheel every few seconds, the car’s cabin camera will monitor the driver’s eyes. Look away for too long and warnings escalate until, yep, it disengages FSD completely.

The big question: will Tesla’s new camera-based system be a true hands-free experience on highways? Or will drivers still get nagged into keeping at least one hand on the wheel much of the time?

Elon says the “level of polish” on v12.4.1 will rapidly improve with point releases. But we’ve heard that one before, haven’t we? Only real-world miles will show if this is finally the hands-off turning point for Supervised FSD.
