    I just went through a carwash for the first time. I could not stop the auto wipers. The wiper action was a real pain. Is there anyway to stop them from activating?

    Turn 'em OFF!

    On screen, lower left corner, push the wiper icon to open the card, then press and hold. Like this.

    OK thanks! I forgot about the cards. I looked everywhere except the cards.

    I’ve turned my wipers off a few times and I don’t recall having to press and hold anything. I feel like pressing and holding was an older software thing. Anyone else chime in here?

    You definitely don't have to hold it, just tap.
