Manuals are available for the 2021 Insight model year; quick links to these PDFs are as follows:
The (poorly written) Owners Guide does not appear to be provided any longer for the 2021 Insight, and was taken down for the 2020 Insight. (Good riddance!!)

Great thread ..thank you.
The PWS thing looks like an annoying problem. I almost never see a pedestrian, except maybe in a parking lot. An off switch is needed. Also I don't like the "Removed Keyless Access Setup from DII menu (OM19: pg 154)". I like the various options available on the '19.

Thanks anyway Honda, I'll stick with my 2019 EX

The 2021 is growing on me. While the more intrusive PWS sound is there, I've gotten used to it. The blind-spot monitoring is WAY better than Lanewatch. Not only are both sides covered, it's got rear cross-traffic and lane departure warning (along with LKAS). As far as PWS goes, it's just a matter of time before someone comes up with a hack to keep it quiet :)

An improved Lanewatch would be welcome. The current one is OK, though requires some habit forming which I don't get in this moderate traffic suburban / rural area. Have found the camera useful for merging to a right lane on crowded Interstate.

Liked your father / son/ twin Insights picture in other thread. :)

I switch mine on to look for bicyclists before making a right turn. Honda did improve lanewatch if you look at what the Honda E is using.
