So an RX Astromech Droid can do all the following? I'm impressed!
“A piloting droid made exclusively for the Starspeeder 3000 series, the RX is a capable droid programmed to follow very specific coordinates between landing pads stored in its memory. Over time, its programming has been improved and it is now able to pilot any fighter or freighter and can even engage other ships in combat long enough to get to safety. Equipped with an advanced diplomacy chip, it is able to converse pleasantly with passengers, and is quite a capable pilot able to avoid sudden dangers that may appear. Although rather antiquated, the series still draws its share of enthusiasts who find its programming especially useful since it can take control of the ship and continue piloting the ship until it reaches its destination even when the pilot has left the ship and entered another vessel docked within it.”
Sorry Hal, a link in a previous post led me to that description. I was just funnin' the guys.
I found this in the rules for droids;
“5/ Droid Piloting
Droids with piloting skills can maintain travel after the pilot has left the ship or vehicle (such as by entering a docked entity), therefore avoiding a potentially annoying and unplanned abort.
The following conditions must be met for this automatic event to take place:
Droid is located in the cockpit.
Vessel's class is appropriate for the droid's skills (ie. Capital Ship Piloting > 0 to operate a capital ship).
Droid's supervisor is the same as ship or vehicle pilot.”
So is this rule functional for all the droids listed as partially implemented?

Undocking does halt the travel of the parent ship. The only thing the droids help with is the boarding of the still docked vehicle. As soon as you enter (click) the cockpit, travel is halted for that parent ship.
