The check mark means Rear CC is on. No check mark means it is off. If you uncheck the box, then the next time you start the car, the rear CC will be off. ie. it's the same setting as before.

The fans suck, they don't blow. So the best thing is to sit, when the car is stationary, about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch off the backrest. This allows air to circulate.

It's hitting triple digits here in Texas (finally), and I'm getting nice use out of the MAX button. Shouldn't the MAX button also turn on the seat ventilation suckers at the same time?
