Maserati Touch Control - Accept Button

Looking at the DVD manual under "Maserati Touch Control", "Devices, controls and buttons", "(1) On/Off Button & Volume Control Knob", page 6 indicates that if the Accept button is not "served" then the system switches to the main screen anyway.

Does this work for anyone? Basically, to use the touch screen in my car I have to press the "Accept" button when the system first starts. If I do not press accept the system does not automatically move on to the main display after some time. Hoping to find a way not to have to press the Accept button every time - just annoying when I am making several short trips in a row.

My understanding is that there is no other way but to accept. No way to turn this off.

Thank you - I thought it was just me! The system does not default off the accept screen for me either. To be honest, I was surprised that the manual said it would, as most US systems seem to err on the side of the lawyers...err...caution.

Would love to be able to find a workaround for this. Had a tool to change factory default settings on VW/Audi cars through the OBD port that I've used extensively on previous vehicles. I wonder if there's something similar for Maserati?

Would be great if there is a work around. Maybe we should check Chrysler or Jeep forums?

On the forums I've looked at it works like the manual says:
Uconnect Accept Screen
How do I turn off the UConnect "Accept" screen - DodgeForum.com

Update: According to my service tech who inquired with his contacts the manual is correct for Europe but not correct for the US due to a US legal requirement.

So maybe there is a workaround out there?

I was told by my dealer on pick-up, I better get used to it ... Maserati coded it in for safety / liability. But sure someone will figure out the code or at least reduce the number of times you have to accept.

Speaking of U-Connect; This was the first time I had the system "thinking" ... it was prompting me to "please wait". Not sure what I was waiting for unless there is some sort of automatic upgrades.

Ahh welcome to the most litigious Country on earth with more lawyers per capita than any other country and where there are more lawyers graduating than there are jobs for!! Can you say Class Action........golden ring................Ever get a $3 check in the mail for some stupid suit that you did not opt out from............trust me the lawyers made millions ........and the cost of goods when up............Capitalism good and bad but better than........well you know Communism.....Despotism..............Military Regime......Accept is probably and automatic defense for any accident caused by you fiddling with the MTC while driving!!

This is really odd, considering I just rented a Dodge minivan that had last year's UConnect. It flashed the "Accept" screen and then automatically went to normal after a couple of minutes.

I have left it on for a minute or two on a UK reg Ghibli and it did not go off without pressing the accept. I cannot say it never will go off but 2 minutes is certainly not long enough on this European car.
