    Question: How can you (driver) exit the vehicle while leaving the display on for the passenger? Usually when you exit and shut the door all of the displays go black. Any suggestions? This would come in handy when running in somewhere while leaving a passenger sitting in the car.

    If you left your key fob in the vehicle, the vehicle would stay on.

    Maybe not practical, but leaving one door slightly open will keep the systems on.

    Pretty much what Transl8r said. You just leave the key fob and keep one door slightly ajar.

    If the passenger just taps the screen, it will come on and stay on for 15 minutes after the most recent tap. FOB doesn't even need to be in the car.

    This is in the FAQ:5.4 Can I leave my car on while I'm not in it?

    Leaving the FOB in the car doesn't leave the screens on, but putting it in neutral and setting the parking brake does. I remember now that is what my delivery specialist had told me as well. Thanks everyone!
