You have to enable it via coding for the NA market.

Alex@Alpine can hook it up.
This is a really useful feature for daily drivers

Alex coded mine last week with this feature... Pretty cool I must say and from what I can tell so far it does improve mpg slightly. That being said, it makes driving a little less fun since it keeps you under 2k rpms most of the time.

Hint: shift at 2K and go green. Then shift down 2 gears, redline it and absolutely smoke that Prius in front of you.

So spend a few hundred dollars to get your vehicle coded to tell you when to shift so you can save money on gas, or the free version is to just shift at a lower RPM and lighter pressure on the throttle and save money on gas

It tells you to shift into 5th gear at 35mph? I won't shift into 4th until i'm at least doing 40mph. The rpm's will be way too low

An interesting feature, yes, but a CBA is needed. How much does it cost to get it coded, how much will you reduce your fuel usage by having it, and how long will it take you to make up the cost and begin realizing a savings?
