    Which option do I have to buy to get the summon function? Is the simple autopilot enough or does it have to be autonomous driving?

    You only need Enhanced Autopilot to enable the Summon feature for driveways, parking spaces, and other short-range scenarios, where the car is essentially just parking/unparking itself in a specific place of your choosing, as you stand nearby and watch.

    From what Tesla has written on their Autopilot page, it sounds like you will need Full Self Driving to tell the car to autonomously search for a parking space, and to summon the car back to your current location from anywhere, regardless of where it is currently parked. Of course, in order for that to be possible, Tesla will need to actually add Full Self Driving capabilities to their software first.

    Prior to the arrival of FSD, Tesla plans to add the "Smart Summon" feature to EAP, which gives Summon the ability to "navigate more complex environments and parking spaces, maneuvering around objects as necessary to come find you."

    Thank you! I was afraid of it. $5,000 is a lot of money. The question is, do I buy it now or later? For a small surcharge I can buy it later, if I really need it. :)

    I want EAP but I won’t get enough value at $5k to justify it when I’ve already maxed my budget ;)

    I gotta say, I'm dreading the day that there is FSD for the car to be able to run off and park itself in a parking garage.. Can you imagine the lines this is going to make as these cars SLOWLY (and no doubt it will be much slower than a human) try and figure out where there is a spot, how best to get into the spot, adjusting, etc. garages will probably need to have a lane JUST for self parking cars. I know many garages have their EV CHARGING stations on the ground floor, easy to access, but there will be so many more EV's at the future point when FSD goes live that they won't all be able to park there.

    You must not spend time in Florida ;)

    Watching people park is a spectator sport here :)

    :)... technically I have lived in Florida and Im very familiar.. but at least in that case I could tell what I was dealing with and find a quick way around or they would waive you by. And, we have a similar (several) different demos out here just not based on age.
