Tesla owners have been anxiously awaiting an update for the company’s second generation Autopilot hardware for roughly two years. According to Elon Musk, new features are just around the corner, including the ability to control your car with your phone.

“Tesla advanced Summon ready in ~6 weeks!,” Musk Tweeted. “Just an over-the-air software upgrade, so will work on all cars made in past 2 years (Autopilot hardware V2+).”

Musk then went on to add that the upgrade will allow Tesla owners to “drive to your phone location and follow you like a pet if you hold down summon button on the Tesla app. Also, you’ll be able to drive it from your phone remotely like a big RC car if in line of sight.”

The remote control feature will reportedly work from long distances.

Tesla’s Enhanced Autopilot package retails for $5,000. Again, owners have been waiting for new features like this for two years.
