    OEM temperature guage accurate!

    I'm finding the temperature guage to be very accurate and useful. Today it picked up the "heat islands" and shade temperatures and open road temps to be very accurate, even minute to minute. This is the upper end, how are the lower end temp readings, in freezing and single digit?Name:  DSCF6081.JPG

    It's accurate deep into the negatives as well, as long as the car is moving. seems to pick up heat from the engine if it sits still while running long enough.

    hold the hour and minute buttons for 3 seconds and let go. if you hold for i think 5 seconds it goes to 24 hour clock.

    you can set the HVAC to C as well, holding auto and off for a couple seconds. Best way to match the car temp to the igloo, so you dont freeze your toque while out for a rip

    But first you must depress AUTO and then OFF, not both at the same time.

    Don't we just have the blue-to-red rotary temp dial OR is there a cold weather pkg or something I don't have?

    No I just have standard AC in mine. Cold is generally not a problem where I live. But I have "solar-heated" seats; Not OEM, but when it's 105 outside, the vinyl will burn your a**.
