You can select.
The high-beam feature is da bomb. This is not the most important feature in the package, but it is the one that comes closest to artificial intelligence. It almost always gets it right, and does so faster than you ever could.
I know as I have been told, but it is just I have never had the opportunity as 99% of our RV driving is in the daylight. I did mention I have been a traditional cheater using low beam most all of the time. This will change that.
You also mentioned the steering wheel controls. I too don't think of them as a luxury as I can now work them without looking meaning my eyes stay on the road more.
The activation, or I should say deactivation controls, are there on the dash. I leave everything on.
Our Pioneer GPS system does not let you route plan unless you are stopped. That is a little bit of a pain since the passenger always did that on the road anyway. With our iPhones the passenger just uses Google or Apple Maps to fill in planning gaps. We haven't tested the Apple CarPlay ability yet through the Pioneer to get iPhone info on the touch screen. So far the built in GPS has served us OK. It has a lot more information on display than Apple or Google Maps at a glance.
We have Serius built in and ready to go but haven't signed up. So far the many iPhone internet radio apps have done the job for us 95% of the time with our favorite home radio stations. If that fails us I now have three full days of continuous music loaded from the iPhone through a USB connection I can play through the RV speakers. I loaded every CD I own onto iTunes these past three weeks. What's playing shows on the touch screen if you choose to use the Shuffle and play lists. I may load some audio books and podcasts. We mostly listen to Minnesota Public Radio in the morning for the local news and then switch over to Joe Soucheray's Garage Logic at 1 PM on ESPN KSTP 1500 AM. It is great to have home with you on the road so you don't return home wondering what's been going on.
