Have not dragged the hitch in a year and a half.  Our Kuat rack has a upturned neck.

With the bike on the rack, do you get any false back-up or cross traffic alerts (IF you car is equipped with these)?

 

Yes the alert alarm stays on when ever in reverse.  Can the alarm be silenced?

Isn't there a window popping up on the left dash screen with an option to turn "reverse aid" (or something to that effect) off when you put in reverse?

I believe you are correct.  No plan to turn mine off.  It just gives my wife an extra warning that her bike is on the back of the car.

That pop up window only turns them off for that one time in reverse, IIRC. Once you shift out of reverse the sensors are back to being active.

In the Driver Assist section of the Settings menu on the Left Dash Screen you can turn off the back up senors. Be aware that they will be off all the time then.

Thanks for ur rapid reply.  I'll look for the pop up. But, Yes, I think that I too will leave it as is.
