    What does this mean (from the release notes)?

    "Passenger control of the touchscreen now lasts 30 minutes after the driver has left the car"

    Haven't tested it yet, but before, if the driver left the car, the touchscreen would blank out and the car (including HVAC & audio) would shut off. Now if there is a passenger present and the driver leaves, the touchscreen apparently now stays active and presumably the passenger can enjoy HVAC & audio.

    Ahh, the distinction is between "driver" and "passenger". Thank you.

    And, in both cases, the passenger can/could just touch the screen when it goes blank, and get another unit of time.
