This was from a few months back, but you can see this guy's view is the regular ProPilot. This version is not hands free, but I guess he is seeing how far to push it. I don't recommend doing this, but you can see how it works. I don't even think it's to be used for city or local roads either.

I have an Evolve+ with ProPilot 1.5. It doesn't appear to be limited to just particular mapped roads. From some informal testing I did, it works on any road with clearly painted center and edge lines, including rural roads. It appears to work by detecting edge and center lines and will try to keep the car between them. If it loses track of the lines it makes a sound to let you know that you need to take over with steering and those green vertical(ish) lines on the display will turn off. It expects you to keep your hands on the wheel. If you take them off, after a few seconds (3? 5?), it will let you know to put them back on. Overall, it's a lot more effective and useful than I had expected.

It should be able to run anywhere, but it may or may not see everything. The main thing is it doesn't check for intersections, I don't believe, so that is why it isn't really intended for local roads.

Yes, it's completely unaware of intersections. If it's an intersection with a green light, it'll basically just take you straight through, but otherwise it's up to you to stop for a red light or stop sign (if there's no car in front of you to cause it to stop) and steer if necessary. My commute is 80 miles round trip and is a mix of rural roads and interstate with only a handful of intersections, so for me it ends up working quite well. In a more urban or suburban drive, I'd just leave it off.
