2014/2015 Overland entry/exit question

Does anybody know if there's a setting where the driver seat moves back and steering wheel lifts up automatically upon exit in the 2014/2015 Overland? Right now, mine remain stationary. If so, where is the setting?

Thanks

It is in the options tab on the navigation unit. Fish around and you will find it. I think it is under "convenience".

I found it. It's under "Engine Off Options" rather strange place for it but thanks for confirming it exists.

Re: 2014/2015 Overland entry/exit question

I have this feature turned off. I prefer that the seat doesn't move as it doesn't provide any ease of exit or entry in the most rearward position. It would be cool though if you can select just the steering column to move in instead of the only option being both the seat and steering wheel.
Even though I don't have rear passengers often, easy exit sucks when you squish the heck out of a rear passenger when your seat goes all the way back lol.

I also have this feature turned off. I find it more difficult to get out.

I loved having this on as a driver, but had to turn it off as it made rear entry for my daughter a nightmare.

I also wish you could move just the steering wheel up. Our Mercedes has that option.

Upon exit, my 740i moves the steering wheel only, not the seat.
I would activate the feature in the GC, but with a baby seat behind me, I'd rather not.
