wonder about the efficiency of using battery capacity to heat the entire cabin with E-heat for a single occupant;
Driver Focused Mode (also on 12.3" Sync 4 screen) is interesting...still waiting on my XLT 312A. As wondered about above, has anyone compared % of trip energy used of full cabin heating/cooling vs. driver focused?
Maybe my heated vest for the motorcycle will come in handy to plug into the 12Vdc?
"HOW DOES DRIVER FOCUSED MODE WORK
When active, driver focused mode automatically shuts off the floor duct on the front passenger side when the front passenger occupancy seat sensor detects no one is on the front passenger seat.
DRIVER FOCUSED MODE LIMITATIONS
The system does not function in the following conditions:
•The outside ambient temperature is 5.0°F (-15°C) or less.
•Defrost or Max Defrost mode is selected.
•Any of the required sensor readings are faulty or disabled.
SWITCHING DRIVER FOCUSED MODE ON AND OFF
Press the button on the touchscreen to access the climate controls. Press Driver Focused.
When active, driver focused mode switches off when any of the following occur:
•You switch it off in the touchscreen.
•You switch dual mode on.
•You adjust the passenger temperature.
•You adjust the passenger heated or cooled seat settings."
I have not seen what shows up on the 12.3" touchscreen when a climate control icon is touched there. I thought the physical pushbuttons below the screen would be the place to start touching.
