    It is in the spreadsheet.

    The issue, is it is not an In Motion Setting technically. It puts the radio in Europe mode, where it is not illegal. It changes other things. Some of the SiriusXM Travellink features go away. The big thing that goes away is the E911 feature that will automatically use the connection to your phone to dial 911 in the event of an accident.

    I was not willing to lose this critical safety feature in order to gain a little convenience. When my wife totaled the 15 Expy, when somebody turned in front of her at 45. It called 911 while she was still dazed. She has nothing but bruises, but if it was worse, I would want it to do everything it could to get her help.

    With CarPlay I just use Waze. Much more accurate anyway!

    Maybe I'm just looking at an old version of the spreadsheet. I looked and didn't see it there. Now that you mention the Europe mode, I remember seeing this before.
    I'm going to try Waze. I've been using Google Maps and MapQuest via the Android app. I guess I'm a dinosaur lol I like being able to use the factory system though.

    HawkX66,

    That's correct, updating he APIM line 7D0-02-01, space 2 from the OEM "5" to a "7" does activate it. I don't use my Expy a lot, but when I do, I'm usually traveling with a passenger who can then use it to it's fullest. I try not to do stuff like that when I'm by myself. So the advantage is as a driver, you can head out in the direction you already know you need to go and the passenger can then nail down the final destination details while you're headed there. I like that ability.

    You won’t regret using Waze. Google Maps is good also. Both blow the factory system out of the water.

    Hey all, just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work everyone has done on this project. I’ve been reading through this whole thread for the past week or so, and finally had time to do everything I wanted this morning. Activated remote start, factory TBC, Bambi mode, 6 blinker flashes, remove key in ignition chime, remove green fog lamp indicator from dash, and fog lights as DRL. Truly awesome. Thanks again.

    I did some re-programming this weekend. A few worked and a couple didn't work. Here's what I ended up with:

    -Reverse title mirrors didn't work. I couldn't find the DDM.

    -Double Horn honk. Very bummed this didn't work. Gas station, leave key in pocket and get out to pump gas and you get two loud honks. Very annoying...

    -Seat belt minder shut off. Worked.

    -Heated/Cooled seats icons. Worked.

    -Secure idle enable. Worked. Might have been enabled already...

    15-17 has no PDM or DDM. Hence why a lot of options available on other vehicles in those same years is not available in ours.

    I got the Double Honk Disable to work on both our old 15, and our Current 17. Try it again.

    Will do. Thanks.
    Actually... strike that, reverse. I didn't have the line that needed to be changed. 726-41-02

    That's interesting your 17 doesn't have the 726-41-02 line, as my 16 Limited EL has it and I did the change to stop the double honk. It also appears to stop the horn from honking at all when the engine is running. Meaning when I leave the vehicle and double punch the fob lock button, I do not get a honk signifying the car is locked.

    On the secure idle, what is the "change to" number in 726-42-01? Is the "1" the correct number to enable it or is it something else?

    If secure idle is truly possible on a 2017 that would be a major find.
