Love my Lucid! But I have had the usual issues with my new Grand Touring and software foibles that others have. I haven't seen much about this yet though. I am VERY annoyed by the alarm to keep my hands on the wheel. I have a Tesla Model S in the family as well and the occasional reminder to move the steering wheel a bit is FAR more acceptable to me than the seemingly every minute or two warning to put my hands back to the 10 and 2 position on the Lucid's wheel. Even having one hand in the correct position is not enough!! Why must I place TWO hands in a position that is not my normal or a comfortable driving position? I most commonly have my hands on the bottom of the wheel, but the car doesn't seem to know they are there. I hope there is a fix to this eventually or I doubt I will use highway assist or other Dreamdrive Pro features. Does anyone know any way around this annoyance? Am I the only one who doesn't usually have my hands at 10 and 2 on the wheel?

Hey @laurieb14, @Cyberwife mentioned here that "The guys could rest their arm on the door and have one hand on the wheel, which keeps the alarm from going off to keep your hand on the wheel. My arm is too short so I don't feel any sense of relaxing while driving. In fact it was opposite for me, as I constantly struggled with keeping the alarm from going off. And having my hand on the lower part of the wheel which was comfortable for me, did nothing to ward off the alarm. It's like that section of the wheel has no sensor."

I agree with AZ-(something), it's not important where you hold the wheel but you have to exert some force on the wheel, and it is way too sensitive and very annoying. Actually, I think it is dangerous because you can exert TOO MUCH force and change lane when you do not intend too! Also the eye sensors are too sensitive - I just look into the other lane for a second and it complains. The system is in urgent need of update.

I just wanted to follow up on this thread that I started. I am not sure why I didn't figure it out, but I did try just a slight wiggle of the wheel (regardless of where my hands are) and that dismisses the warning. The car still doesn't really recognize my hands on the bottom of the wheel, but I only have to give a tiny jiggle and the warning is dismissed. This is much better than having to move my hands to the top of the wheel as I had been doing. Thanks for the helpful input AZ-Don! As he mentions, it may not be where my hands are at all but the slight tension (or wiggle) of the wheel that matters.
