Yes, the new navigation/energy algorithm, pushed out OTA in April, is terrific. It handles high speed highways really well now.
Occasional quirks about routing and you can't force it to an alternate route except by just driving it (adapts instantly to route changes or missed turns). Also doesn't have a waypoint feature, a longtime complaint. The best part is the energy use projection — and real time updating — is much more accurate now. With voice navigation, all you do is state your destination and let the car take you to each Supercharger Station as needed. Also does a really good job at projecting the ETA, charge level, and time charging at each stop and the destination, even when driving most of the day.
You really have to see it in action to believe it.
