    Can't find any details in the owners manual or a Google search. As far as I can tell, it's just telling me wheel placement....which is great for someone who doesn't know which way their wheels are pointed? I guess I could kind of see the benefit while off road...but not really.15520582978948593886446832821976.jpg

    It’s an icon I don’t use except if one of the doors isn’t latched fully, then it’ll tell you.

    Yeah, got the part on door open notification, but otherwise feels like a useless icon...

    Thanks, I honestly could not find this in my owners manual. Probably because I was looking for something with the icon itself.

    The forums have rescued me once again!

    It can be very handy when 4 wheeling.

    This ^ - I've been in tight rutted out downhill decent situations where you get to a point where you think you've returned to center and your steering wheel is straight, but wheels are still actually turned. If you're in soft sand, you might even proceed (mostly) straight for a while, but then you catch a root, stump, or solid ground and either suddenly jolt in that direction, or you potentially bend a tie rod or something of the sort.
