Default Should I listen to my shift nanny?

For the most part, it seems to be pretty good, but I find that in low load conditions (level ground or downhill) it's calling for a downshift, but I tell it to STFU as I am doing just fine lopping along at 1100 rpms.

There are some times when it seems to lose it's freaking mind and get stuck calling for a downshift when I am at 1800 rpm, low load. There is absolutely no erason to downshift at this time. I just chalk it up to the 'puter having a senior moment.

It’s an annoyance, I assume it’s calibrated towards maximum mpg’s

if it's in regen it wants rpms to build heat and exhaust flow.

I've also noticed mine tells me to stay in lower gears through higher rpms while warming up.
I do that anyway... but only because I want to, not because it tells me.

This is an interesting point. Ocsaionally I find myself looking at the light calling for a downshift and think "you're freaking crazy". I chocked it up to an ECM brain fart, but it could be that it's in regen and it just wants some revs.

Sure do wish they had included a regen light. It would go a ways towards prolonging emissions system health.

This is an interesting point. I've had my 2013 JSW for a few days now, and my point of comparison is my wife's 2015 Golf TDI 6MT. I feel like they are very different in that my JSW is seemingly always telling me to downshift like you say here, and my wife's golf is seemingly always telling me to upshift. It's strange.

I wouldn’t listen to it, then again, I also want a way to permanently disable all the stupid “nannies” like the traction “control” and the kickdown “feature @ in manual mode (if an affordable CPO manual comes up, I’ll most likely trade out of the DSG

yes I know I can disable trac. In vag-com and I can get a DSG tune to disable those features, but I shouldn’t have to pay extra to get the vehicle set up the way it should’ve been from the factory.
