Cool Advice: Any secrets, tips, and trick for Accord Sport? Search?

Hi all!

I'm new to this forum and just recently bought a 2017 Accord Sport. I was wondering if you guys could share any tips and tricks for the Sport model. I tried looking it up, but it's mainly for ex or higher models. I thought the Sport could open all windows with the remote, but I guess not? Anyways please share away! Thanks!

After some google and forums searching, I found out that you're able to keep the reverse camera engaged, while driving. This is done by:

Step 1. Hold down 1 + 6 + Disp + Power Button. (Maybe difficult at first with one hand, but muscle memory kicks in)
Step 2. A screen will come up, press the Menu button.
Step 3. Reverse camera should appear. Drive with reverse camera on.

I've done this when the car was parked, when I was driving, it works everytime. Sometimes I have to do it twice if I don't hit the buttons one after another.
Helps with blind spots and who's behind you if you're not too distracted by the movement while driving.

However, after the reverse camera is on, the only way to get rid of it is to push the power button. And you lose all access to radio, AUX, etc (so put on your favorite radio station before you do this! )

That's the only "hack/tip" I know for our sport models. Haha cheers.

**Edit** Just reread your post and saw you purchased a 2017 model. What I mentioned may or may not work because I have the 2014.
