    I was at the super charger a few days ago. I wanted to read a book in the back seat since the sun was beating on the front. So i got out of the driver seat, closed the driver door, opened the rear door and got in. stereo and AC did not turn on. I could see the super charging info on the screen, but when i leaned forward from the back seat to tap the screen there was no change; I could not hide the super charging screen and no music or AC turned on. I was able to start the AC with my phone, but could not get music to play until I got out and back in to the front seat.

    is there some trick to get the screen back to full control when both front seats are empty? Hoping it's something obvious i'm missing.

    From the App under controls, try starting the car?

    You need to crack door open to make it stay on. Still waiting on that camper mode to make things work.

    It's not the empty front seats, but opening/closing the front door that trips up "car is empty" mode.
    Do what my kids do, and climb through and over the arm rest to go between front<->back seats ! :D

    Starting the car from the phone is an interesting idea. I'll have to try that. Hopefully they can add a camper mode with V10

    as a bonus to starting the car with the app, you can also control media playback from the app (play, pause, FF, etc)

    but yeah, we want camper mode.

    Turn on Romance Mode. It'll get the idea.
