Smart Shortcuts

By observing and learning driver behaviors, patterns, and preferences, the system 
anticipates driver actions and presents on-screen suggestions to help perform 
desired actions quicker and with fewer steps.

The app will suggest actions based on what it learns you do often, and 
occasionally make recommendations based on your learned preferences.

The system will take some time to learn. The more you interact with the system, 
the more suggestion you will see, and the more accurate they will become.

Suggestions will automatically refresh periodically to provide updated content for 
each profile.

You can also provide feedback on whether a suggestion is helpful by pressing and 
holding on it. This can help the app grow smarter over time.

To change the notifications behavior for Smart Shortcuts:

1.

Select 

Options

 on the 

Smart Shortcuts

 screen.

Select
