My 2019 RTL-E ( US version) does not have the climate control system that the manual shows or what the on screen tutorial indicates. There is no " MAX AC" button on the right side of the control panel" Did they make a mistake?

I just got this vehicle 3 weeks ago and it's taken me awhile to dive into the manual. When I look at my climate control panel I do not see a "MAX AC" button on the right as the manual shows. It is a blank button. When I go into the on-screen tutorial the voice and line items include a MAX AC as well as just a "Vent" section.
Did Honda put a RTL-T or below climate control system on my RTL-E ?? This is a US version. Confused.

I figured it out. The E version has " Automatic climate control" so no MAX AC. Jesus there's like 6 different control panels for this rig. Sorry for the post. I'll try and delete it. My bad.

No point in deleting it @montanaman someone else will eventually have the same question

For the RTL-E just hit your voice command button (lower left steering wheel) and after the beep say : "Climate Control Max Cool" For max heat, do the same except say "Climate Control Max Heat."

No.

See page 188 (Climate Control System), not page 195 (Heating and Cooling System).

the max AC is the same as the recycle AC button. Use that for "max".
it looks like 3/4 of an oval with an arrow on one end.

#1. It's NOT an American automobile! You don't need a Max button, just put the fan on high and lower the temp to Lo and push the Sync button. Simple!

You can set the temperature range through the HU settings for Climate Control.

MAX AC does not mean "turn the AC to it's maximum power", it means "recycle the vehicle's inside cool air for maximum cooling efficiency"

I'm thinking it does mean that and it achieves it by going to recirculation amongst other things. Kind of a shortcut.
