Those on this forum with a Tesla, how do you like summons?
I've used summon only twice before to get into/out-of a tight parking situations.

I fiddled with enhanced-summon a little and imagine it would be as useful as summon. Which is to say that it's not useful enough to use all the time, but for the few times where it comes in handy, I will be really glad to have it.

Although I'm not a fan of Dana Hull, at least she gets the point in this article: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features ... ople-first

I thought that was a good, well-balanced article, and it essentially comes down to an ethical and societal question. Is it acceptable for a company rather than the society at large to decide to test a product that can potentially kill a member of the public who hasn't given their consent to be part of the test? Companies like Waymo and individuals like me say it's not, and Tesla says it is.

And these are the situations where you'd be glad you had smart summon, even if you NEVER use it 99.9% of the time: https://www.reddit.com/r/teslamotors/co ... ith_smart/
