Helpful hint: Dog mode in app activates rear vents

I’d like to call out that I now use dog mode to precondition the cabin on hot days. This activates the HVAC more aggressively and includes the rear vents.

Additionally, when I start to drive, the rear vents will remain active so I don’t have to engage those for my kiddo sitting in the back seat. Why if you have the car seat indicator activated it doesn’t always keep the rear air on, I don’t know!

I find the cabin cools faster and the “climate” on feature which uses a lower power HVAC setting and only activates the front vents.

Just got recent update! Stoked to get 85mph auto pilot for I5 drives.
