As to the default for ECO mode, Jeep missed the obvious opportunity to please everyone. The default could simply have been to keep whatever setting you last had. The Jeep can remember what radio station was playing and at what volume. It isn't a stretch for it to remember the last setting of the ECO button.
(Along those lines, the only difference between the radio having an "off" button vs a "mute" button is its ability to remember what the last setting was. If it was muted when you parked and stayed muted when you started the engine, it would be an "off" button. Oddly, on a 2014 Chrysler 300 C I drove with a nearly identical setup, it was an "off" button.)
Good point on the ECO mode.
As for the 300C, same size screen, completely different radio setup.
