I am curious if you can dim or turn off the center screen while driving? I realize on the model 3 and Y this is probably impractical due to it being the only display.... I am hoping Rivian provides a way to turn off the middle screen at least at night.... (since there is a drivers display for speed and important driving info) I like the cabin to be super dark at night.... I'm kind of bummed that my wife's 8 inch display in her Forester won't go completely dark.... Just curious what everyone's thoughts on this...

There is a display brightness control which can be put in manual or automatic mode. I am not sure if the minimum setting is off. I doubt it. But at night the display switches to light on dark rather than the daytime dark on light. Much like what happens if you click the light bulb symbol at the top of this page.

My wife's Forester does that as well but I am hoping for an off option... Granted it's not a show stopper... just a nice to have. Her old Honda Pilot had a simple button to turn off the screen... in fact it let you manually choose between daytime, nighttime, and off.... Granted the only drawback to that was that at night if you wanted to toggle it back on... it would toggle to daytime first and about blind you........ My guess is that there won't be a completely off option because there won't be a physical button to turn it back on.... just another thing to wait and see....

Android already includes a feature to wake the screen with a double tap. It's how I always do it on my phone.

I hope there is an off button too. It can be annoying to have a bunch of extra light in my face at night. Especially when you are out in the middle of nowhere without all the light pollution from a city.

I would assume they would carry that feature forward from the existing Volvo side as the XC40 recharge is the same platform.
