Rear Row, according to salesperson.</font>

Thanks for the creative answers, gang!
To the rest of you who said "it's Rear Remote, you moron", you missed the point. Rear Remote is just too redundant - where else would a temperature remote be? Outside? Under the car? At home?
Plus, it already says "Rear Control" underneath the dial. So adding Rear (or R in this case) is pointless. You might as well add R in front of every position on that dial. They all have to do with the rear!!
I'm not about to have a heart attack over this but you have to admit - it does jump out as being the one part of the dashboard that makes no sense. As if the rest of the dash was designed by people with a sense of simplicity and economy of expression - and then a manager stepped in at the last minute to fill in for a sick designer one day to do this RR thing.
Ok, I admit there are a bunch of other things on the dash that aren't quite as smooth as they could be. The seat heater switches (lighting, location, and use) comes to mind. And that weird iconography on the wiper stalk might as well have been written in Latin.</font>
I agree that Rear Control is fine. The problem is they already used that underneath the front panel knob! So I would go along with changing RR to RC as long as they change the label underneath the knob from Rear Control to Rear Temp.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by Maugham:
What would be a better way to briefly name the function of passing control to the remote in the rear?</font>
