Yeah, I figured that out pretty quickly. However, I fiddle with my volume quite often, sometimes I turn it up way loud and other times it's quiet depending on my mood and the music. It's weird to expect that I should have to adjust my nav volume to match that every time, and the controls to do that are buried in a menu. Waiting until Nav Lady is speaking means I'll either miss part of the instruction because she's too quiet or be blasted out because she's too loud. Nav volume should be adjustable, but stay relative to overall volume.1) However, it sounds like you haven't figured out how to adjust it at all;
Automatic High Beams are part of the Super-Mega-Equipment package (with the radar guided cruise control and lane departure warning system etc) which I don't have on my car (But I'm starting to regret not getting.) However what I have noticed is that the fog lights aren't part of the DRLs, and they turn off with high beams. So the only time the fogs come on is with regular headlights. So the switch and the "auto" headlights actually do something, but it's not "Turn the headlights on (or make them brighter) when it gets dark enough." It's "turn on the fog lights, high beam control, and auto-leveling/active light control systems"2) I think what you may be missing here is that the automatic headlights also control the high-beams.
I also noticed that the thresholds for "headlights on" and "dash to night mode" aren't the same. So sometimes the headlights come on but the dash is still in Day mode. It happens in tunnels and overpasses a lot. This sort of behavior isn't necessarily bad, but there's no explanation of it anywhere and so it's quite unexpected.
There's a growing problem in which people who have cars where the dash stays lit all the time don't turn on their headlights when it gets dark. They drive at night on their DRLs because "Hey there's light coming from the front and my dash is lit up so my headlights must be on." When the dash lighting behaves unexpectedly or in a way to that doesn't assure the driver that the lights come on when they should, it causes confusion and could lead to people getting tickets or into accidents because of it.
I don't want it to open automatically. I don't want it to open fully. I would simply like a hatch popper like most sedans have trunk poppers that just opens the thing past the point where it auto-latches. Surely slightly beefier struts would do that? Also, I haven't figured out what the conditions are yet, but the hatch button doesn't work while I'm in the car at all. I had a security guard the other day who knew where the button was, but pushing it did nothing. It may be that the car has to be in Park with the PBrake set for it to work. I got out and it opened right up (much to the frustration and annoyance of the guards for disrupting their routine).3) The only way to "fix" this is to put automatic liftgate openers in, like minivans and SUVs have,
