trims are the same in cruise vs not. Perhaps the tip in throttle transition is better with cruise than with foot.

Also, remember that cruise essentially works like pulse and glide. For example. Say cruise is set at 55. Speed needs to drop to 54 before throttle is applied. Throttle stays on till 56 is reached. Etc etc.

Food for thought...
