Climate crontorl Icon shows vent postions : - )

This may be old news to some/most of you but I just discovered it today so I'm excited.

All my other vehicles have a manual knob or slider to show you whether you are on vent, floor, vent/floor, etc.
With the Jeep, I was always flipping into the Climate screen to see what it was set to.

What I did not know is that the little climate icon shows you what you have selected. If you have it set for 'floor' you will have a single arrow pointing down. If you have it set for 'vent' you will have a single arrow pointed horizontally.

If you have both floor and vent selected as I did you get two arrows : - )

I had it on my 5.0 uconnect at the top. I recently upgraded to the 8.4, and I too just noticed this icon as well. I knew it was for climate, but I did not realize at first it showed your vent flow choice.

I noticed this awhile back but to tell you the truth even with my driving glasses I have to lean forward to see what I have it set to.
Getting old sucks.

If you also have the navigation, on the GPS icon it will show you if you are heading North, East, South or West!

Yup, I almost disabled the compass heading option just because of this. Seemed silly having it visible in three locations.

Icons also show if you have heated steering wheel and seats turned on
although they are very small top right corner on RA4.

Scares me that after driving the Cherokee for 2.5+ years I never noticed that until you pointed it out.

It was raining today (as you know being from MI), and Climate Control was set to Auto and the icon also included a defrost symbol.
