After my last couple videos on the 2020 GT500, I had a request to show how to set up My Mode. I filmed this tonight to show how to set up and save My Mode as well as My Color and My Gauges. There is some spirited driving bonus footage as well as a look at a neat feature with the tech package at the end!

Awesome video thank you, I honestly never knew about all of those features until this video. I know my 14 GT500 has a more basic my mode setup.

Tim; THANK YOU for a great video. You are the "BEST of the BEST". Can you explain a little farther the "Advanced Track Mode" feature??? Iam not going to race my car at a track but if in laymans terms you could expound on what that feature does it would be appreciated. Think of it as you are the Senior Professor and Iam a freshman student. Thank You again.

Tim, Is there any way to turn off the Nav display? I know there is a way to turn off the entire display, but I just want to turn off the Nav portion.

Thanks for the positive comments guys. I have fun making these videos... hopefully I’ll make another this coming week.

Thanks Chuck! The Advanced Track system keeps the car from getting out of shape (read: swapping ends). The amount of assist varies with driving modes (normal/sport/track/drag/slippery). In normal mode, very little wheel spin or vehicle yaw (ass end sliding out to the side) is allowed. In track mode, your advance track system is still operational despite what the warning light on the dash indicates, but it is considerably looser allowing for more wheel spin as well as yaw (read: some drifting is allowed). The traction control/advanced track off toggle switch below the stereo controls allows you to completely turn off the system, which would be needed if you wanted to do doughnuts.

If I’m understanding your question correctly Earl, simply select Audio, Climate, Phone or Apps to go to a different screen (other than your nav screen).

Thank You Tim; Looks like I would probably want to keep mine in Normal Mode.

But Chuck, then she won't downshift as you decrease speed! <smile> I can't hear that enough, I swear. :-)

Yes, Sport does loosen the rear end up a LITTLE bit but it is always controllable and, you get the best tach display setup as Tim mentioned.

So, I suggest you give it a try once you get comfortable with her, Chuck and I think you'll be sold.

I’m with KB! Actually, I am normally in either My Mode that is a Sport Mode derivative or Track Mode! When just cruising around, I am usually in My Mode. When I’m “playing,” I am normally in Track Mode and as KB said, I can’t get enough of those EPIC downshifts!
