    Hi Folks,

    When I got my 2020 Prime, I noticed there was a sticker right on the SOS button saying something to the effect of tracking my usage/stats. I think I lost that sticker...How do I disable that function?

    Also, anyone know if there is duration on my trip info? I drive over 140 miles daily and I typically like to see how long it took me. My V had that, but I dont see that stated in my trip info on my Prime. Thanks!

    Press the trip button until current trip shows up. It should cycle through Odometer, trip a, trip b, then since hybrid system was started which is what you really want.


    Unsupervised!

    Well, as it turns out, it is not very easy to deactivate the track and record function in current "Connected PRIME". This applies to all trims of 2020 PRIME that came with Safety Connect telematics installed as standard.

    As pointed out by @drash above, you can check the duration of travel (Elapsed Time) in the MID by toggling the "Trip" button on the steering wheel. The one corresponding to either current miles driven since start, DTE, or EV range will show the "After Start" stat of the trip.

    If you forget to cycle this before you turn off the car thus resetting it, the same stat will also show up on the MID briefly each time you shut down the car.

    I completely missed the state when I shutdown the car. I barely get a chance to see my "score," which is completely silly IMHO.
