    Hi guys. Does anybody know how to get rid of the Volvo i-see tech?
    This new truck, constantly changing drive mode to EE+, is there a way to put truck in P mode forever?

    "I-See CRUIS-E is a pre-requisite to get I-See function. For more information concerning I-See, see the I-Shift software package fact sheet. CRUIS-E functionality with I-See I-See is turned on and off via the ECO button in the steering wheel. Eco Off turns off I-See. The Eco levels (Off-1-2-3) that result in different speed behaviors and settings are available as well as for CRUIS-E, but with different underspeed settings."

    I found the above. Don't explain much but you can look at it.
    I-SEE is a part of cruise control. If all else fails & its that important, you can simply turn off cruise control. I-SEE wont work when CC is off.

    However, at the end of the day. I am betting that if you're a company driver, you wont be able to turn it off via the ECO button on the steering wheel. You're just not going to have access to those options.

    I have not found a way to turn it off. I am going to ask my mechnaic next time I'm in for something. I've been driving the truck with it for 6 months now and I wanted to give it a chance but I do not like it.

    I do know this. You can get in the habit of switching from EE+ to E+ every time you get in the truck and it will be more driveable. I would not want to run in P all the time, revs too high. The power and the fuel mileage are down low.

    EE+ will let the cruise drop 6 MPH from setting in my truck, way too much. Switching to E+ just drops 3 and it's a lot better.
