Has anyone else noticed that the Cross Traffic Alert is not has sensitive after the May 2019 software update? When I back out of my driveway and cars are passing by nothing happens anymore. Prior to the update, the CTS would go off as cars went by.

I tested it today - I had my son walk perpendicular to the car as I was backing up. The CTS would only go off when he was in very close proximity to the car.

Are there any adjustments for the CTS? Should I swing by the dealer and have them diagnose it?

Thanks...

CTA doesn't work with people unless they're running very fast. It's about the speed of cars approaching.
It actually worked for me when a kid on a skateboard came around the corner and I was pulling out of a parking spot.

I’m not sure about that. Mine has gone off when people have walked behind me in a parking lot...

Mine have too, but not always. In any case, it's not quite designed to do that, I think.
Whatever update did though, didn't alter CTA for both of my cars.

I have all the newest software the day it comes out on both of my SPA vehicles. I have not noticed a difference at all with CTA and yes it does alert to people walking around you. Mine goes crazy at walmart or restaurants.

Mine is working. “Tested” it accidentally on an unsuspecting person yesterday.
