So my old Acura RDX had a simple (and best) solution to the personalized driver settings. If my wife opened the car holding her fob the cockpit adjusted to all of her settings. If I approach and unlock with my fob it would roll the seat back and down and adjust the mirrors etc to my settings....SIMPLE. With the GV70 (and this is the only thing so far I can complain about) it doesn't work this way or ANY way! If my wife was the last person to drive the car I approach, open the car and nothing changes. No WAY im going to fit in the car with her settings. Okay so I thought well if I just reach to the inside door panel and push #2 surely it will move to my larger person setting...STRIKE 2. OK so I'm forced to manually lower the seat all the way down and back so I can get in. I then start the car and it asks me to "verify" with the finger print button. As soon as I do that it thinks for a second and then tells me its "switching user" or something to that effect and start to proceed to try to kill (suffocate/crush my chest) me by going into my wife's settings. At that point I have to reach with the left hand and push the #2 button on the door to stop it from squishing me. What in the heck is going on here? Why not just have the car identify which fob is opening it? Failing that why not allow me to just push #2 and send it to those settings (also very easily doable with the Acura if I ever found myself having to drive but using my wife's keys). No, it makes you have to start the car first and with all those buttons to the right of the steering wheel. one must be in the car sitting with foot covering the brake to accomplish that. Then, if it wants me to verify with my fingerprint...fine...I can do that....but why in God's green earth after I do that does it decide that I now want to switch to the other driver/user? It's MY fingerprint attached to my settings. All of this happens to my wife when I was the last to use the car and she unlocks with her fob except she can easily slip in behind the wheel and also is not threatened with chest crushing death after she jumps through all the hoops. I CANNOT believe that this is the way its designed but have talked to my dealer and the national hotline with NO solution. Please HELP ME FORUM PEOPLE.....or is this in fact a major flaw in the engineering of this driver/user identification?

I only have my profile programmed so haven't experienced an issue with it not using the settings i programmed for my fingerprint. That is the whole reason to have fingerprint profiles. Maybe delete your profile and try setting it up again?.....

As far as the seat being too far forward for you, I believe there is a setting in the setup that moves the seat all the way back after you turn off the engine.

Hope you sort that out. That would frustrate the heck out of me!
Good luck!

thanks Pal but i did try re establishing my profile....funny thing is is that if I'm in the car and then move the seat back or adjust the mirrors and then press #2 (me) it goes back to my settings and doesn't decide to willy nilly "switch users.....so there is much illogical about this issue that just doesn't seem right, consistent or logical. I do know about the easy out setting for the seats but dont like it because it will crush a persons legs that is sitting behind you if it is set that way so I turned it off....thanks for trying to help

I do find the tech quirky sometimes. The seat won't go to my setting after I do the fingerprint and I have to hit my #1 setting for it to go. Happens about 1 out 20 times maybe. Almost like if you interrupt it by doing the fingerprint, it forgets what it is doing. :LOL:

I've noticed some other glitches too. Kinda like my **** Iphone and apple watch. I've decided all tech has glitches no matter how much you spend on it. The more things it has to do, the more complex the software has to be and thus the more bugs it will have.:rolleyes:

I know, I'm sounding like a pessimist.....

yes tech can be quirky but knowing that my Acura from 4 years ago had it solved leaves me very frustrated that this interface is NOT rocket science and for a car that has SO many great attributes not having tested this user/driver identification out to even work as good as "old" technology is regrettable

Whoever is setup as the primary driver, can invite. Secondary driver from online or from the App. From there, you can set a number of settings, but you will also need to get in the vehicle and switch to the secondary user and set your fingerprints and user profile, settings, radio preferences, etc. save your seat settings, the who kit and kaboodle.

once that is done it really is relatively simple to use the fingerprint to switch users in the vehicle and have everything set the way you prefer. This applies to HUD,display preferences, radio settings etc…. Rear view mirror is about the only thing you need to change at that point.
