Okay - let me "try" to help a bit - First, there is no one-touch button just hanging out on the dash or wheel to shutoff the phone. IF you use either the MMI screen OR the in-dash (between the gauges) display to initiate a call, then you DO have a one-button off option - either the key around the MMI knob (believe it's upper left -11:00) or the left steering scroll knob - (that you push) to end the call. But IF you say have the MMI on Nav, the in-dash screen on Car, AND you call from your phone (not hands-free, NOT recommended) and the call connects automagically thru BT, then the only way to end the call is either A) go to phone on your MMI, and then push the end-call button - this takes TWO button pushes, one to get to the phone screen and one to end the call; or B) use the top left button on your steering wheel to move to the phone (TWO button pushes, THEN push the scroll button in for the THIRD button push to end the call. For me (since my MMI screen is normally closed) I use the latter method - but since I also use THAT method to call (since I do NOT want to fumble for my phone to call), the in-dash screen is already set to phone and then i really only DO have ONE-BUTTON push to end the call.
Now the other stuff - Main and Trip odometers. Actual odometers you have just ONE Trip Odometer - it is reset by the button on the dash (right side of tach) that says "0.0" on it. just mash that baby and it will zero. Now for Computerized stuff, you have TWO odometers (distance and time) Trip (1) and Cumulative (2) whereas the trip is just between successive ignition on/offs and the cumulative is well, cumulative. So in that way you can think of them as current/average - but while the current is live as displayed when in view, as soon as you turn the car off, that value is average for that trip (say 1, 10 or 100 mile trip on OD1) and the cumulative (2) keeps going UNTIL you clear it to start over - which you might consider is a trip instead of say a leg.
To clear either of them you use the in-dash display and use the upper lefty button (with the arrows) to get to the Car menu and then use the scroll button to scroll through the values - each time you get to a value - push the scroll button in to clear that value. You will see a little number (1 or 2) in white in a little red box to the upper left of the middle part of the in-dash display as you scroll thru them. All the values associated with the Trip set will be 1, while the Cumulative set will be 2.
Hope this helps ...
