Confirming user every time we start up car?

We currently only have one account connected to car and enabled as primary user for ID4 (v3). Do we always need to confirm the user as it's very annoying to always click the "ok" before HUD/CarPlay is displayed.

I'm sure there is a fix and I realise it's not what you asked but an alternative! .... Get used to not having "HUD/CarPlay" to distract you from your driving?

Just a suggestion. Sometimes the old ways are the best! Quite liberating actually to just eschew all this excess of display information and, you know, 'drive' the car like we did in the old days! ;)

It's what I ended up doing in the Fluence and the Zoe that nagged me into pressing soft-buttons before being allowed to see anything.
If I wanted the old ways I would be driving around in a diesel pickup with manual windows, no power steering etc.... No thank you, I would rather the display popup up this notification and then after 10s display the radio/music station instead of my face.
Surely the 'truly old ways' are electric car ways? They did come before petrol cars, which came before diesel pickups.

Look, ma, a car with no internet connection!!! ...

Pretty sure someone has already made an electric version of that. Just insert one Tesla motor and a battery. :D
That wasn't quite a reply I was expecting.

If they took the engine and gearbox out which are located .... hmmm .... somewhere!!

I love the fact that it doesn't even have a steering wheel, and the driver and 3 passengers sit in it facing each other! :D

I made this little montage of it so you can see, from Jay's video;
