    There is a button on the dash next to the hazard that disables the backup assist. Just have to remember to press it. I agree, there should be a way to disable the backup assist on a more permanent basis.

    I believe all features that are regarded as 'Safety' related items will default to the factory settings after starting the vehicle. Perhaps FORScan has a solution.‍

    Has anyone noticed where they put the battery? No problems with it, but was looking under the hood today and thought what one might have to go through to replace a battery....... Doesn't look to easy.

    One more thing: the wireless phone charging pad will not fit an Iphone 8 plus with a case on it. Just two more millimeters would do it. If I take the case off, it fits. This seems like a design overlook since large phones and cases are so common and an extra couple millimeters is clearly achievable with the existing center console.

    See this post about removing the battery. Seems simple enough; View from Beneath a 2020 Explorer

    Maybe consider a different case. Fits my wife's Iphone 11 Pro Max with case pretty easily.

    i agree.. it shouldn't apply the brakes... it should just let off the gas. this will eventually case a rear end crash...Its way too aggressive!

    My pet peève has been around for quite some time. I hate how if you get out of the car and close the door while it is running, the horn beeps twice.

    And the 1/3 backup screen is too small, so i always have to change the view to get rid of the all around the car view.

    Thanks, good tip. Got a slim case and it fits now. My old one was an Otter Box Defender, which is a bit bulky because it's overbuilt for max protection. Really glad I can charge my phone now

    I see that carried over from the 5th gen Explorers. I too really dislike this. GM at least has a 3 very quick lighter in loudness and our Subaru beeps but not anywhere as close to the super loud/annoying way Ford does it.

    Bottle that and sell it please!

    Actually over the years I have learned to finesse a partial door close to keep the elements out and beep at bay. But I slip up from time to time and my neighbors wonder what I am honking for!
