2014 - turn off radio/eco?
 
I have done 600km in my 2014 Overland. Apart from a couple of annoying rattles, and a new radio swapped in when I was picking it up, it is a great vehicle. But 2 questions please:
1. How do I turn the radio off? I can mute it, but when I next start the car, it comes on again.
2. Ditto re the Eco button. Is there a way of turning Eco off without it being on next time the car is started?
I've read the manual, but can't find the answer, so any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Russell

Both will always come on at startup. The radio is more than just a radio, it is the heart of the uConnect system. It would be nice if we had the option to have it default to mute/screen off, but Jeep didn't see it that way. I find ECO mode really sucks until the Jeep is 'fully' warmed up. For that reason I turn it off every morning when I start the car.

There are a few other things that are a bit annoying because they force you to do things that you should be able to set to happen automatically. They are IMHO minor glitches that make me think the designers don't spend a lot of time behind the wheel of a Jeep. :)
