Sorry if this has been brought up earlier, but I was pleasantly surprised to see Blue Cruise activated on my vehicle with a 3 year free trial!!
I will be putting it to test later on today!

Do you own a GT or are you part of the early access program?

Not free. You paid $600 for it. And not a trial.

Can you please enlighten me HOW I paid for it.
It got activated yesterday and I received the notification about the three year trial. I thought I would have to activate it by subscribing and paying $600 for it , but when I go to my connected services it shows as you can see above that it is a trial that ends by 9/2/24.

It is on your window sticker. Vehicles made before a certain date cost $600 less than yours, and can choose to pay $600 to turn on BlueCruise when it is available. You already paid $600.

It’s bundled with the panoramic roof on GTPE models

If you got your vehicle around May the 600 was already included on the vehicle price. So the people that got their Mach E before May had to pay the 600.

Got is not the right term, it's manufactured. Mine was manufactured on 5/20. I got it on 7/2. No BlueCruise.

Ford had a cutoff date on orders when the price went up sometime in April I believe. All GTs included it from day one.

I think it depends on when you ordered. I thought I remembered seeing the $600 price increase happened in April. I ordered mine late March....built late June....delivered early August.....no $600 increase for blue cruise. I had to sign an acknowledgement paper when I picked the car up that I could purchase the software in the future.

Time to take your new baby out on the highway and try out that handsfree driving - and reporting the results back here of course 😜! It's the perfect weekend for it since EA is also offering free charging, but make sure you follow these steps to enable P&C: https://www.macheforum.com/site/threads/how-to-enable-plug-charge-in-7-steps.3094/

Oh, and time to update your profile as well!

By the way, not that anyone cares about Tesla on this forum...

Tesla this week started a slow rollout of DMS (Driver Monitoring System) which uses the built-in cabin camera to monitor the driver's attentiveness.

I "won the version lottery" getting to be one of the first to try it out. At this time, rollout has been paused for bug fixes (as is normal for new Tesla software releases).

While Tesla has NHTSA to contend with, gotta think adding this will help them negotiate Basic Autopilot's future use. And maybe switch Basic Autopilot to a completely hands free system instead of touching the wheel.

Maybe this time Tesla is the one following Ford and GM?

If you care to listen, here's my two podcast episodes describing the behavior (so far).

Hope all goes well for BlueCruise and enjoy the capability. As Tesla owners are already having to deal with people hearing about Chevy Bolt's battery fire issues and thinking it applies to all EVs, sure hope BlueCruise doesn't disappoint.

So without plug and charge activated you can just pull in and plug and charge it free without any account set up ?!

At EA chargers, this weekend, ending Monday. Then turn on P&C via the app.

At least 2 people have posted that they've been charged by P&C this weekend. By turning it off in the app, you won't have that issue.
