This article explains how to program both driving and seating modes in Ability Drive.  For the mode button to be turned on to access seating, the DLX-REM500 needs to be mounted next to the eye gaze device.  Please contact us and we will remote into the eye gaze device and turn the mode button on.  Phone (425)242-3902 or support@tolttechnologies.com
