New safety features?

So having my '17 EX worked on for 3rd time so asked for loaner. Got a '19 Optima and noticed some new safety features:

-Radio mutes a bit the in reverse now
-Rear collision warning now has overlay on backup camera screen to show direction of threat


Are any of these in later than '17 Sorentos??

You have both? Is there a way to turn these on or add them?

My ‘19 LX has them. I believe you can turn off the radio volume lowering from the menus on the radio. The cross traffic warning I don’t think can be disabled. Why would you want to?

What language settings are you using? Your text always has some weird symbol stuff going on. Observed on all of my devices.

I don't want to turn that off but like to turn on. All I get is the audio warning and mirror LED flash. Don't see any warnings on the back up screen when reversing.

I might need to update the iOS on my phone. Been avoiding it so it doesn’t slow it down.
