overdrive is 5th gear for automatics .... supposed to be activated at highway or cruising speeds to improve gas mileage ....

that's the passing gear ... it doesn't make sense for a manual tranny to have overdrive ... could be a typo ... maybe it meant manual overdrive as opposed to manual transmission with overdrive?

overdrive is used on automatics and reduces the RPM to conserve gas and put less wear on the engine.
