Question Digital Speedometer

Question for folks that don't have the tech package that displays speed on the windshield. Can you have digital speedometer be displayed in the HUD? I know when you set cruise, you can see the speed that's set. Wondering if there is an option to see digital speed all the time.

Interesting, in the US the HUD puts up the 'fasten seatbelt' message. Don't get that on my UK car's HUD. (There is a little red warning light on the dash somewhere though).

You can configure the HUD to display vehicle alerts or not.

Are HUD alerts enabled in your car?

I have all the options ticked in the (HUD) Info Displayed menu, so I'm guessing it's a US feature unless there's another setting somewhere else.

Head-Up Display / Info Displayed
- Speed limit information
- Driver assistance
- Navigation
- Check Control messages

Is it true a lady microwaved her dog to dry it after giving it a bath, then sued the microwave manufacturer for not stating that microwave ovens should not be used for drying dogs?

Sorry, a bit off topic here

Typically, if it sounds too stupid to be true, then it isn't.

The only way to get digital speed is to have the Heads Up Display that comes with the Tech Package.
