A couple trans tricks I learned

I was trolling the g05 forum and someone mentioned these tricks, I tried them and they work.

Hold left paddle to shift to optimal gear (note it will downshift one gear minimum since it is the down button)

Hold right paddle to return to d or s mode from manual, especially handy in sport mode where manual sticks on m35i.

Thanks for that trick! Tried it out & so much better than sliding the gear stick back to D and then back to S to get out of M mode.

Just went to get more groceries and.. cool tricks! I thought the hold down to get the right gear though was a little bit slow.. I think I'd rather paddle down two or three times myself but I guess it does figure out if you need two flips or three I guess..

Thanks for the tips!

Yeah, the return to automatic is far more useful
