Static Cruise Control

62

Description

My Mercedes will maintain the speed I set in the cruise control even if going downhill. So if I select 75 MPH on the cruise, it maintains that exact speed uphill and downhill so I don’t have to worry about getting a speeding ticket. Since Tesla buys the steering wheel stalk to control the cruise control from Mercedes, all it would take is a reprogram to apply the brakes when necessary. Description

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Shouldn’t cost anything other than the labor for a computer programmer.

From what I can tell, the Model S already does this.  When going downhill, it maintains the set speed...but maybe that is only within the regen limit and it doesn't actually apply brakes.
When I wrote this comment I had only test driven the S and I didn't understand how the cruise worked fully. Now that I have my S I'm happy to report that the S does have a static cruise control. Is there a way to remove my OP?

Even better than removing it would be an option to mark it "resolved". I'd hope that we regularly will have to mark items as resolved in the future! A resolved item should still be present and it should still be possible to add comments, but voting should be closed and it should clearly be marked as no longer relevant.
If they don't indicate "open" or "resolved" what do the red dots and check marks mean here? Sorry for the newbie question, but this doesn't seem obvious...
