Entering my driveway I got the rear mirrors to fold. How to open them automatically?

That could pose a damage issue though. I back into my garage and fold the mirrors so that they don’t scrape the storage rack. If they auto unfolded the minute it put the car into D and crept fwd, that’d annoy the hell outta me.
I will test my car today to see if it will unfold automatically in drive in my driveway...
Ok, I tested it today. Backed into driveway and then pulled out going forward. Mirrors did not unfold until the place they normally do (which is where I normally shift from reverse to forward). It is about 100' from the garage, so it appears clear that the unfolding of mirrors is set at a distance away from the location where you have set them to fold based on geolocation. It just happens that distance normally coincides with my change in direction. I also confirmed they will unfold anyway (regardless of distance) if you speed up above around 30mph...
