    I just purchased a 2019 RTL. I really wanted to have the larger screen that came with the RTL-T and RTL-E, but wasn't able to pony up for the extra cost associated to it. I was interested in either getting an OEM navigation (used - if they can be installed), or go with an aftermarket option...

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    So I like my new Ridgeline RTL, but I thought it would lock the doors without action when I leave with the key in my pocket. It says it will beep if you stay close to the door and after about 8' will lock. Not my RTL. I looked in the manual and it says configure in the multifunction screen...
