    Does your Sport have the Advanced Tech Package with Panoramic View Monitor? If not, the only way (without mods) to turn on your backup camera is to put the vechicle in reverse.

    The window sticker says it has the advanced technology package which costs $800. Not sure if that is what you are talking about.

    From what I understand, PVM is part of the Advanced Technology Package, or you can buy it as an add-on. Regardless, if your window sticker doesn't mention Panoramic View Monitor, you probably don't have the 360 cameras, just the backup camera.

    If your truck came with the Advance Tech package you will see a button on the left hand side by the steering wheel for the front camera (It's in the cluster by your left knee).

    When you press that button, it will manually turn on the front camera. After it is turned on you can select "Auto".

    That will enable the front camera to come on when you are driving under 5 MPH.

    I don't know if this is related but something weird happened over the summer. After I shut off the truck I turned the steering wheel till locked, here is the mistake...when I got back the truck would not start and the dash was like a Christmas tree...everything lit!, the truck now has 16k (miles) then probably 13k,14k...I was shocked!, disconnected the battery, gave it a few minutes then the truck started...so don't do what I did...when it happened we were out of town too...did not happen again. On some other vehicles that we have this thing never happened...

    The ccw is “on your person”, not your seat, glovebox, center console or whatever contraption you build.

    If it’s not on you then you’re transporting a firearm, where is is to be locked and unloaded.

    False again. CCW per the CA code states concealed is concealed. Regardless if on person or not. That means it can be in a backpack, under a tshirt on the front seat etc.

    I always thought that with concealed carry permit, that the weapon had to be on said person. Not strapped to a side console, or secreted in a vehicle. Etc Etc.

    Pretty sure , that firearm should be on said persons body whether concealed or not. And by the way Im not trying to start any stuff with anyone. Not looking to offend.

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    I was taught that "concealed" meant "not visible." So sitting on the front seat next to you, it isn't visible to the car next to you or anyone approaching. If it is a holster attached to you console and not visible to a person standing next to your car, it is concealed or not in view. I think it comes down to knowing what the legal definition is for you state / jurusdiction. And if you don't know, then have a good lawyer on retainer. Which is probably a good idea for a gun owner anyway.

    I can't remember when but I was staring at my cruise stalk and realized all you have to do is long press the cruise button for normal cruise control...
