After an hour or so of constant highway driving we would hear a single chime, gas tank had plenty of fuel so it couldn't be that.
After hearing a couple more of these chimes I finally noticed a message on the LCD screen.
There was a large flashing green circle with this text: Consider taking a break.
And below the text was an image of a steaming cup of coffee.
This intermittent interruption continued about every 15 minutes until I turned on the cruise control.
Then the chiming stopped. First vehicle I've had that nagged me like a mother.

It senses some erratic driving habits on your part. Yes, you can change the sensitivity settings.

Mine did that until one day when I raced a guy and it told me to take a brake at about 70 mph and then at about 100 mph it started blinking "Slow Down" and at about 130 mph it let out a loud scream and never bothered me again.

There is a menu setting I noticed on the center LCD that has a level of attentiveness. I thought it would track your eyes and see if you paid attention to the road. I know some cars do that. I think Volvo or Volkswagen would track things like that.

The SF doesn't have a camera facing the driver, which you would need to track that kind of info. It just uses input based on how long you have been driving.

Subaru is the only one I know of that has a camera facing the driver. Can't speak specifically for Hyundai but in general terms the car tracks wheel inputs, speed deviance, brake applications, etc - uses these factors to rate your "alertness". I've been given the reading in DC are traffic - crazy stop & go w/ unpredictable stop and starts = it thinks you're tired ?
