Autopilot means that anywhere you double click (with the left mouse button) inworld, you'll automatically walk, run, or fly towards. Autopilot is kind of flakey, so don't be surprised if this doesn't always work and you get an "Autopilot canceled" message.

You can make this disappear in your preferences > move and view > click on land > do nothing, and double click on land > do nothing.

I know that LL recently pushed a viewer patch to fix this aong with the CHUI work, so very recent builds don't have this bug. It should work its way to other branches shortly, if it hasn't already.

Autopilot is an old SL feature that has been used for several things over the years, it simply makes the avatar try to walk to a particular spot, or at least face it. In the past it was most commonly seen when sitting on objects without programmed sit targets, but that feature was removed a few years ago. It is still used if you right-click on the ground and pick "sit here".

Most viewers still have the old "double-click autopilot" feature, introduced in 2006, and the "click-to-walk" feature found in most V3 flavored viewers is that same old mechanism but with a single click.

Another time when autopilot comes in is when you select objects, like when inspecing or editing. The system will try to turn your avatar to face that object.
