Is there a way to change the default settings for the fan's air source?

It really frustrates me that at each start, it systems defaults back to the re-circulate option - I'd like it to stay on external air. :beg:

welcome to the world of "climate control" ....

default settings are for "economy" ... at the cost of your sanity ....

worse still is when YOU want it on recirculate on dusty roads and some computer algorith decides its time for some fresh dust in the cab .....

AFAIK in my Dakar unless I deliberately press the recirculation button it will automatically switch to external air once the fan speed settles as it approaches the set temp.
As Chris mentioned it is for economy and to reach the set temp faster. However if you dont touch anything it will switch to outside air itself.

I always run on recalculated air to save fuel and to reduce bad odours from outside.

I Always switch AC off and to outside air as I wait for turbo to cool down. Apparently better for compressor to start vehicle with AC off. Also blows things clear before shutting off then.
