The lack of availability is the biggest problem with Driver+1. Driver+ works well when available
The appeal of Blue Cruise and Supercruise is they seem to have way better availability. I say seems as I don't have either, and I'm relying on things I've heard/read.
Now I wouldn't pay $75 a month for better availability. So for me the best feature of Driver+ and Tesla Autopilot is they come with the vehicle without monthly charges.
I prefer Driver+ over AP partly because it uses capacitive steering which is superior to a torque sensor in the steering wheel. This makes it so much more pleasurable than getting the silly hold the steering wheel message. It's also from my own experience where its less likely to phantom brake, and I've never had Driver+ recenter in a lane when another lane merges in. The Tesla would at a minimum get tricked a bit.
Now just because I prefer Driver+ doesn't mean I won't complain.
- They promised us lane change assist but that never came to fruition.
- They claimed it would be hands free, but there is no hands free. In fact they disabled the driver monitoring system claiming that it didn't even work. So there isn't even a path to hands free without a HW change.
- Last Winter/Spring I was really disappointed by how often it would fall out of driver+ because of a little rain.
There are just systems with their positives and negatives.
