:lol: I've been wondering for almost a year now since I first got my Tribeca. I've been ashamed to ask, but you're right, it doesn't seem to be self-explanatory. i can switch between three trips and save them, but I can't seem to delete them or zero them out. What gives?

I have no idea why the trip meter is buried anyway. Most people need to turn it on while on the road for figuring out how much longer to a specific destination. A good example is one of those "Fuel/offramp in X Miles" type of signs you see on the highway. Usually, one wants to zero out when they see the sign so they know how much longer they need to go, especially when we're talking more than 10 miles.

I haven't been able to reset my trip meter to "0".
I can't find it on my screen???:(
Not sure if this is what you need, but for resetting meter, just press the button on odormeter (in front of parking light button) and hold it for about 1 or 2 senconds.

I'm not sure that I have that on my screen anywhere???
It looks like I have to go through a lot of steps to get to the trip meter on my screen.

It's on the instrument cluster above the steering column. It's hidden in there pretty good.

Yeah that's right, it's in yellow color below
Okay, the Tribeca has great design, especially in the interior. The main complaint I always had was the touch screen being too far forward making me have to lean forward to use it. Now I have another which is this button which is not only blocked visually by the steering column but is impossible to get too while driving without causing a wreck in the process. This button should stick out from right around the odometer reading and the button should be clearly visible such as being differently colored. I should be able to reach AROUND the steering wheel to get to it instead of going THROUGH it.:tdown:

Just make a small tweak like mine in the above pic to extend the button a bit longer then just fine. And why you have to pre-set it while driving though ? I think you have to do it before a trip, right ?:).

Not sure how tall you are but I'm a small guy and feel rather comfy 'bout the touch screen : don't use it much while driving though, and set it up before going... It's a con but no car is perfect, don't you think ? ;)

Well if you look closely right next to or under where the mile display is, there is a black button sticking out that you have to hold down for a couple seconds. (if you push it once it will switch from trip a to trip b mileage.)
