Here are the instructions

, though they aren't terribly clear. Here's how it works...
1) In order to see the menu of the device you need to set the Multifunction Display (MFD) of your vehicle to the "music" screen. The MFD is the screen in your gauge cluster. (The one you change to view vehicle info, speedometer, trip computer, etc.) One of the screens is to display "music" information (the radio station, etc.) This is the screen you need to switch to.
2) Once on the music screen, press and hold the "voice recognition" (VR) button on the steering wheel for about 8 seconds. on the MFD you'll see the text where the music information is normally seen change to "NU Menu".
3) Now you can "scroll" through the menu settings with the right steering wheel buttons: up, down, and middle (select). (These are the steering wheel buttons that normally control radio volume and source select.) Scroll up and down through the settings using the volume buttons, and press the middle button to change the setting. The setting information displays on the MFD screen.
You do the above just to "set-up" your device. So for me, I "enabled" Nav Unlock and turned on ECO memory. Enabling Nav Unlock does not actually "turn on / defeat" motion lock...it only enables
you to defeat it at your command.
I have not had to go back into the Nu Menu again. Though when I take the vehicle in for service, I will likely go back in to turn off ECO memory and disable nav-unlock.
Now with nav-unlock enabled whenever I want to defeat the nav lock, I do the following:
1) Switch to the music screen on the MFD.
2) Hold the right steering wheel (middle) button for 4 seconds until the message "Confirm Safe Passenger Use" starts scrolling on the MFD.
3) After the message stops scrolling, press the right steering wheel button again within 5 seconds. You'll see "Acknowledged" .
Nav-lock is now defeated until the vehicle power is cycled off.
The other feature I can use is to view the factory rear camera. Normally, you only see this when you put the vehicle in reverse. However, if you press and hold the LEFT steering wheel (middle) button for 4 seconds, your UConnect display will switch to the rear camera view. Even if you are in park or drive...as long as you are going less than 5 mph. (Rear camera disables above 5 MPH.)
You can add additional camera or A/V sources to this device (similar to Lock-Pick), but I have not done so. (I have all the A/V sources I need with the factory entertainment system.)
Just a side comment: From what I have read, you won't be able to get any device that you can interact with via the uconnect touch-screen. Starting with the '14 uconnect vehicles, the touch-screens no longer send their input signals "outside" of the screen itself. In '13 and previous model years these device makers could "intercept" the touch input signals and therefore make use of the touch screen, but now they must use physical buttons for device input. I think lock-pick uses the center console screen to "display" the information, but uses the select knob for input.
