I don't believe you can turn the ACC off but you can reduce the following distance to the minimum and then it will behave pretty much like standard CC.

Hope that helps,

I don't think there is one. Even with the full 2-zone climate control it only shows the temperature set for each zone, not the current interior temperature.
