You can program it so all doors unlock at the touch of the front door or push on the fob

Pretty cool eh?

I'll bring this up next time I visit the dealer. Hopefully it won't involve reflashing MFT or the TCM [sarcasm].

As much as I love technology, having so much of it in my car is actually kind of scary/worrisome/expensive.
The fact that it honks tells me something is broken but I do know that if you press the button on the hatch itself to open it when the car is locked and open it then close it the turn signals in the rear will blink and the car will remain locked. I believe it's supposed to do that but then putting your hand in the door to unlock it should so it just fine.

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but you can adjust the navigation voice volume by using the volume knob while the nav voice is speaking.

This also applies to the call volume, if you're on a call that volume is different than music and nav. All 3 are separate.

Does this work for sync voice commands? I set the gains down on my amp, and now the voice seems too quiet. I could raise the gain, but I wanted a finer volume adjustment.

Yes, as long as you alter the volume while sync is speaking, you will only affect the volume of the speech.

There is a setting if you go into the set up.
