    We have a parking garage at home with a low ceiling so the FWD detects that and do not open fully. However, there is actually room for them to open all the way although with just a few inches to spare. I can force them up by overriding the opening height on the center console. According to my user manual, the car is supposed to remember this and geotag the location as safe.

    Unfortunately this does not seem to work. The next time I enter the garage the FWD still open to the low position. So am I doing something wrong or is the user manual not in sync with the actual firmware? I'm on version 17.17.17 for Europe.

    When you open fully from the center console, you should see a pop-up window asking you if you want to remember this setting. Select the pop-up to force it to open fully at this GPS location.

    I have found that even with this, the safety/proximity sensors will override it and not allow it to fully open.

    I do not get this pop-up window. What you say is described in my manual, but it never shows.

    I'll try mine in a couple of hours. What software release are you at? AP2? I'm still at 17.11.10 on AP1.0

    Yup, I still see the pop-up to open fully at this location (AP1.0 17.11.10). You have to hold down the open button until the door is completely opened. If you let go before it fully opens, you don't get the pop-up. So, try holding it down for a few seconds longer after you think it's fully opened. Otherwise, might be a difference in Country or firmware.

    I tried holding down the comletely open button but to no avail - the pop-up window does not appear. So either they removed the function in 17.17.17 or it's not available in the European edition.
