Not “crowd” - as I said, just ten Teslas passing by should do.

Crowd sourcing is the term used for a multiple other inputs via the cloud. Doesn't matter if it is thousands or 3. The mechanism is the same.

Also, public GPS is not precise enough.

Good enough for speed limit sign alignment. You wouldn't be off by more than a fraction of a second (60 mph is ~88 ft per sec. GPS is close enough for this)

The fleet can’t learn while it’s sitting in the garage. It has to be on the fly.

What I'm saying is that new features have to be learned by the car maker, tested and certified to OK. Your individual car isn't going to learn something new that hasn't been downloaded from the home base. Complying with the required ISO 26262 spec for safety critical systems pretty much has to be like this, IMO.
Sure, your car can learn where your home is or your favorite destinations are. Those details aren't safety critical. But your car isn't going to modify the neural net training that takes place on the car maker's servers.
