This is what I do. I use the auto on/off feature but control my own high beams with the multifunction switch. I usually just drive with dim lights anyway, always have, but I have superhuman night vision. My auto dimming works great except when meeting a car in a long sweeping curve they don't dim until the car is more straight on. Also it sometimes fails to see cars with old yellowed lenses until too late.
You can disable them in the Uconnect settings. I'm not sure how this differs from just moving the headlamp switch from A to manual headlamps.
My 2011 has the A for auto on the headlamp switch or you can move the switch to complete manual operation.
