I would also imagine that if the radio volume was to automatically
reduce to below bleeding-ears level when backing up, the driver would
most likely be able to hear little Suzie screaming "DADDY, STOP!!!!".

Part of the Honda Distracted Driver Safety System. Unless you can access
the developer menu in the system using a scan tool and dealer code it
cannot be turned off.

Most people are too stupid to use a turn signal.* You expect them to use a back up camera?

What's silly is thinking that because I want to solve a small problem, I
wouldn't want to solve (and be good at solving) big problems. It works
the opposite way. People who let themselves be thumped by little
problems also get thumped by big ones.

>LMAO! You're concerned about 20 second segment you "may" miss due to


I know darn well that every time I had to go in reverse since I've had
this car (7 days) I've missed what the speaker was saying. Five times
a day at least, and when exploring back woods and desert roads with dead
ends and move civilized places with parking spots more like 15 or 20
times a day. If I owned the car for 5 years, just using 5 times a day,
that's 9000 times.

I guess when life gives you problems and inconveniences, you just let
life push you around. I don't. I like to make my life better. But you
can just suck it up if you want.




>backing up a car which I'm sure isn't often and you call me silly. LMAO!
> That's funny.

That's a good point, and if there had been any small children around in
the tens of 1000's of times I've backed up over the last decade, for
example, it would apply to me. But there haven't been.

Well I can't on a rental car, or while traveling. Oh well, it was worth
asking. But if Toyota has anything like it, I do have the ability to
set those hidden settings.

After a bunch of work, I got it to work on my car at home, but it's a
2005 and it had very few settings, none of which I wanted to change.
Mostly things about combustion iirc that I'd be afraid to change. The
same software applies maybe to 2019 and beyond. OTOH, Toyota has
stopped making even moderate sized convertibles, which is part of why I
got a 2005 and not newer. Next car might be a Mazda Miata or Chrysler
300.

that's because when anyone sees you driving, be it children or adults,
they get the hell away.

You are information-adicted. Seek help -- but preferably not on the
Internet.
