Easter Eggs

Hi All -

First time posting as I just got my FP this past weekend. I have owned Wranglers / FJ Cruiser / JGC in the past, and all of those forums all had a section for "Easter Eggs." AKA... little surprises that would benefit everyone to learn from. I have been reading the forum for the past week or so before posting in an effort not to repeat anyone's previous work, but I couldn't find a thread on "Easter Eggs." (the timing isn't so bad either)

So... here's my first one.

Most of you have probably noticed the HDMI port in the cubby. It's a strange port to be in a car that doesn't have a screen for the back seat passengers. Well, I just had to play around with it.

With a simple HDMI cord and Lightning-to-HDMI adapter (picture below), I was able to connect my phone to the screen. Once you plug it in, go to source on the ICTP screen (unsure is this works with basis ICT) and click on HDMI and voila! The picture on your phone will now be on your screen. If you have some sort of streaming video service (I was using Direct TV Now) you can watch TV and the quality is great. Note: as expected, and as it should, this only works in Park.

What other Easter Eggs has everyone else found / figured out?

This knowledge is so "common" , that even *GR* knew about it !!!

But , did you know that you can even *preset* the hatch to STOP raising at a certain height , so that it won't be out of reach for shorter people ??? *VR* likes that feature !!!

And I thought that was so it wouldn't hit my rather low ceiling in my garage.

One egg I found is that when I am on the phone, the turn signal mutes. I know that is a goofy thing but it annoys me when on the phone how loud the signal can be to the other person. Kudos on the details JLR.

There's a time to think, and a time to act. And this, gentlemen, is no time to think.

Most ICTP owners feel a bit let down by the lack of voice input for Nav (and rightfully so IMO, but please let's not debate this here for the umpteenth time again).

In case some owners are not aware of it, a relatively unusual feature (these days) is the facility that lets (your passenger) input (type) search terms or addresses into Nav while the vehicle is in motion.

And again, please don't hijack this thread into an endless debate as to whether that should be allowed, is really safe or that someone should write to the NHTSA about it .... that's all been done before.

It's just that, if you didn't know about it, you may find it useful, when you have a passenger in the seat next to you.
