The Crew Motorfest how to turn off Cara

AI companions are becoming more and more common in open-world racing titles. The Crew Motorfest is no different, with AI Cara helping the player navigate the world of O’ahu. But can Cara be turned off in The Crew Motorfest?

Whether she’s offering useful tips to complete the game, or setting waypoints to landmarks you don’t want to travel to, Cara is always there in The Crew Motorfest.

How to turn off Cara in The Crew Motorfest

Not everyone likes to have an AI companion in their games. Sometimes they get in the way or don’t stop talking long enough to hear anything else. For The Crew Motorfest, it’s definitely the latter.

AI companions can be useful, but Cara takes that to a whole new level. Not a minute goes by where she’s not asking you where you want to go or what you want to do. Then there are the ‘suggestions’ Cara makes that are in no way helpful.

Cara is activated by pressing Up on the d-pad, providing quick access to playlists, the music player, and waypoints. She can be closed by pressing Up again, but that doesn't mean she'll stop interrupting gameplay. So can Cara be turned off?

Fortunately, yes you can turn off Cara, but there is a catch. At the time of writing, this technique only works if you play with a controller with a speaker built in.

To turn off Cara, you need to go into the ‘Audio’ section of the options menu. Once there, scroll down until you find the ‘Controller Audio’ option and toggle it on. Then scroll down further to the ‘Cara’ option and toggle that on.

Finally, scroll up one to the ‘Volume’ option. This controls the volume coming from the speaker in your controller. Slide this all the way to the left and you're good to go.

Cara will still be available for waypoints and events, but she will be forever silenced.
