Audio Mute in Reverse

35

Description

From a safety perspective, it would be beneficial to mute the audio when the car is in reverse.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

This feature may give you better ability to hear the bicycle you’re crunching or child’s scream.

I am truly surprised this isn’t a federal law, and I have yet to own a vehicle that this is implemented in. I have been told it does exist in one or more high-end cars, but not sure which one(s).

Moderator: If you’re running over toys or children, perhaps it’s time to stop driving! We confirmed the feature exists in some VW/Audi/Ford models. Oddly, quite a few cars lock the controls in reverse so you can’t mute or change the volume.

As with many features, give us the option to enable/disable this.
Include it as an option in the settings tab of the car, either off full, or do a partial volume reduction like what is already done when you open the door to climb out.
