Software Update 2022.43.02

Roomy Entry and Exit

Roomy entry and exit allows the driver’s seat and steering wheel to automatically adjust between a preferred driving position and a preferred entry or exit position, for easier access at the beginning and end of a drive. The setting and the preferred entry and exit positions are saved to your specific user profile. This feature is disabled by default.

To use Roomy entry and exit, choose Settings from the menu on the center display. Choose Vehicle, then choose Access, and then follow the prompts on your screen.

Shift to Neutral Feature for Car Wash Mode

When Car Wash mode is enabled and the vehicle is not in neutral, a “Shift to Neutral” button appears to allow for easier neutral access when moving forward in a drive-through car wash. Press the brake pedal to allow the shift to Neutral.

Thanks, Dad for this idea and feedback – RJ
