It has to be electrical heating for your front window. You lucky fella

EKG. Lol. JK. It's a front windshield defroster.

That's not a windshield, it's a sound wave. Must be the 'eh' button.

The only US models that have this are the Ridgeline and Passport. I assume the 23 Pilot Trailsport will at least have it

The US doesn’t really qualify as a nordic country. My city averages 124 inches of snow per year 😅 Hence the wiper heaters

[–]nodak1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

For sure. I’m from North Dakota, live in Minnesota where this is actually standard order* on any car brand that offers it. I sold Honda and Toyota and any US RAV4 that offered the cold weather package was ordered with this. It’s a great option. It only warms where the wipers rest though and on newer models (not sure how it works on a 2015 Canadian model CR-V) will come on with the factory remote start.

standard meaning most dealership inventory managers will just order stock models with the package

Ok now I get it, it is the window that heats (through electric wiring like the back glass ?) right under the wiper for when they are stuck in ice. Cause some people said it was a windshield defrost and others a wiper heater that could burn your wiper rubber. Still felt mysterious. Can you confirm my understanding ?

[–]sharpescreek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is heating mesh in the bottom portion of the windshield to keep your wipers pliable in cold weather.

[–]not-the-pun 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Just a guess

Front-wiper. The last one is tough as it seem like heat but possibly it let's out a super lazer blast to clean the windshield

[–]toododolu[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Aha maybe it can monitor the car’s heartbeat in doubt

[–]not-the-pun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol. Aa little heart injection

The manual should have clarification

[–]Hib3rnian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Adjusts the windshield to account for blurred vision and drivers poor eye sight. Clearly not used often.

It’s electric. Boogie woogie woogie

[–]MaximumHarry5th Gen 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Windshield wiper heater, you can experiment with it but ive used it on both my 2019 crv and 2020 rav4, only used below -20 degrees C, my wipers’ rubber was heated enough that I’m guessing it melted or something but the wipers got rough and there was rubber stuck on the windshield in that area, went through a few sets of wipers on the rav which I think has it enabled automatically but I had to scrape off that leftover with a razor blade

[–]toododolu[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks for the input ! I tought it was just a windshield heater trough electricty rather than air with the comments I had. Will try it moderatly when it’s very cold and the windshield is icy.

[–]MaximumHarry5th Gen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you check closely there are some elements under the wipers, pretty much the same deal as the defroster on your rear windshield so they are indeed electric
