If you turn voice alerts on in settings, the tone may well be accompanied by an announcement, like "Low Outside Temperature" as Nubo suggested.

Living in MN that was one of the first things I turned off! I suppose it might be somewhat useful for someone driving a distance and might not realize the temp has dropped and potential ice but for our garaged Leaf where the garage temp was 30-40 in the winter, basically every time we drove it, a short while later it would beep telling me the outside temp was cold :roll: No sh*t Sherlock, it's cold out there :lol:

Could it be the Blind Spot Warning alert?
I noticed the sound come on when the car starts turning into the adjacent lane.

Don't know about the 2020 but older models have an "outside temperature alert" you can set. It's meant to alert you to the possibility of slippery roadways.

Judging by your info display you might have been at that threshold. At one point mine was chiming and I wondered "what was that about"? There was a corresponding visual indication on the console (a little snowflake) but it was brief enough that it took me a few times to catch it.
Thanks. The degree in video is latitude,longitude. It is relatively hot here (32 C, 80F).

Thanks :) . It is not blind spot. It occurs in other occasions as well.

Ah that explains why the "temperature" had so many significant digits :lol: But still do a quick scan of the dash when you hear it; maybe some other alerts are as brief as that little snowflake one was for me.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Yep!
Now I've understood my right back door does not open. Could be related. :idea:
