See part I circled from manual. This light appears to always be on while driving. It's part of the overhead dome lighting. Anyone know what it is or is for?

Is it the ambient light? If you change the colour scheme does it change colour?
No. Just a small white light. In the daytime you wouldn’t even know it’s on unless you put your hand up to it.

So, do those buttons just turn those lights on and off? In my 2019 SUV etron, it has two lights, but not behind covers and they have no switches, but are turned on and off capacitively by touching them.

The buttons cycle through the lights, yes. I’m talking about the little open with a light in it that isn’t controlled by anything that I can tell.

It’s just a low power light to illuminate the center console; I would guess primarily the start button and shift knob. I’ve seen some ICE vans with similar lights. Quite handy in them, but once you get in the GT, most things have their own illumination.

What is the icon on the bottom right corner? Looks like three seats? I can find any information about it in the manual.

I couldn’t find it in user manual, but I deduced it was 3 empty seats in back.
Bakus’s reply makes sense, but be never had pax to check it out.

Honestly, isn't the cockpit display busy enough already? Does that icon disappear shortly after you turn on the car?

Yes, it's only there for the first minute. So if I get in and it displays as Red, does that tell me there's an intruder waiting in the backseat of the car to garrote me with piano wire?

I believe this is the seatbelt status for passengers. It should tell you if someone is in a seat with no belt and when it was put in. Given I have two small kids, this is super useful.
