Rear seatbelt alerts with big dog


Jan 5, 2021
Reading, PA
For those who have larger pets (I have a great dane) that you transport in the back seat, is there a way to defeat the intelligence in the back seat?

While driving our girl in the back seat, the seat belt alerts kept popping every time she adjusted.

It also seemed to make the rear vent toggle on and off as it detected then lost then re-detected back seat passengers.

I know I can manually set the vent on/off, but is there a dog mode for driving, so I can tell it to ignore the back seat belt indication temporarily, or at least keep it from popping up a card over and over?

I'm a bit like an ADD squirrel, so I see it pop up an indicator and look every dang time because of the big red circle. Hoping there is a way to keep it at least from popping up over and over.
