    Do the auto folding mirrors link to the GPS so that they fold as you approach your garage? The car already knows where you are since it can open your garage door. It seems like the mirror folding should be linked to this so that you can fit in your garage.

    Likewise they should auto un-fold when the home link closes the door when you leave.

    Is this a feature that I'm unaware of, or something that should be added?

    Edit: I found this thread...seems like they don't do this. Folding Mirror Question

    It won't auto fold on the MX either. Although if you drive over 30 mph (or around that), the mirrors will unfold.

    I'd really hate if it did that and there wasn't an option to disable it. I can't back straight out of my garage. In every car that has parked there, it's been critical to be able to see out of the side view mirrors to back out without hitting the sides of the garage opening while turning the car in reverse.
