Power telescoping wheel

How do I get it to retract upon exit? I read the manual and I don't see it. Is it possible at all? On the BMW I once had as a loaner, the wheel did that and I really liked it. Any ideas?

Re: Power telescoping wheel

Easy entry/exit settings are in the Uconnect settings, but I believe only the seat moves, not the steering wheel.

My steering wheel moves as well.

Re: Power telescoping wheel

I think that for either the seat or wheel to move, the driving position has to be a minimum distance from the exit position. If it would only move a very small amount it just stays put.

Re: Power telescoping wheel

My seat moves, but my wheel doesn't. Probably because I normally have it adjusted pretty close to the dash. I guess if I drove with it further out, it would move in on exit.

I believe this is correct, because my steering wheel only moves but not my seat. Which as you said, is probably because my seat is already back pretty far and doesn't need to move. (I'm 6'3).

Re: Power telescoping wheel

My steering wheel moved on my 2012 overland, but not on my 2013 overland. Only the 2013 Summit's steering wheel moves according to my dealer.
I also miss the power telescoping / up, down, adjustment that the 2012 had.
The 2013 doesn't have it, just the crappie manual one.
