Is there any way to get rid of the disclaimer about being a responsible driver blah blah that is displayed when you start the Passport? I try to ignore it since it goes away after 10 seconds or so but it blocks the camera if you're backing up and it blocks any sensor alerts too. So if it's supposed to make me a more responsible driver by blocking more critical things it actually fails to accomplish that. Not sure if it's a Honda-thing or a federal requirement but it's really annoying and I'd appreciate it if there was some way to permanently disable it (or at least as long as I'm driving-- driver 1 with the FOB, not overriding seats, steering wheel or mirrors-- so it's obviously me or someone with identical characteristics as me which is unlikely). Anyhow, Honda, somehow I've been driving (mostly) responsibly for decades and never needed a disclaimer to do that (since keeping my license and my insurance rates is far more important).

Yeah, I'd like to disable that warning screen too.

That or similar disclaimer appeared on my 2012 Pilot. I think it is Honda doing due diligence in showing the world it's concerned for our safety, but as gwar9999 writes, it might be doing just the opposite in blocking critical operator information at critical moments. Or is it a legal disclaimer covering its rear end should an accident occur?

Strange that my 2019 Pilot will show the disclaimer but if I put it into reverse right away it goes away and the camera view shows. Every morning when I stop and get coffee when backing out I have never had the camera not come up right away. I bet I am backing up within 5 seconds after starting the car if not sooner.

Interestingly, I had opened a ticket a couple of weeks ago regarding HondaLink and a rep finally called me back about it. I told him I gave up on the app and eventually mentioned how annoying this disclaimer was. He seemed really receptive to doing something about it. I could hear him taking a lot of notes while I was describing my frustrations and said he'd look into it since it's something he said could be easily fixed. So hopefully they do something about it considering how useless it is-- has anybody actually read the entire blurb? I honestly hadn't made it past the first line.
