The system appears to work seamlessly but my disappointment is that it didnt work on lots of regional highways in my location, just significant Interstate roads.

The system is comparable to what is discovered in the brand-new Lincoln Aviator, which also succeeds to keep body movements and pit mitigation stations less impactful to the cabin.
