    The location based suspension is remembering the GPS location and raises the car as it is supposed to, but when I leave the programmed area, it is leaving it in "High" mode rather than "Standard" height. If I programmed "Very High" it returns to "High", not "Standard". Anyone else seeing this issue or I wonder if am I doing something wrong.

    I lowers in response to hitting certain speed thresholds, namely 22 and 34 MPH.

    Exactly, it is location based raising, with speed based lowering.

    Thanks. I presume the thresholds are not settable by the user.

    No, they are not. They used to be 9 and 19 which was much less helpful for things like snow drifts and gravel roads. Obviously, you can manually lower the car if you want it lower than the automatic resets.

    The only speed threshold that can be set by the user is the lowering to low.
