In an ordinary automatic transmission, OD is normally off so when pushing the OD button, it turns on the over drive function or gear and "shifts" the tranny into a higher gear, dropping rpm of the engine relative to the speed of the car.
Sounds like with a CVT, the OD button functionality is the reverse. In other words, the OD button works as a "limiter", keeping the tranny from going into a higher gear. So OD is always on unless turned off by activating the OD button. Is that correct?
