Re: Digital or Analog Speedo

I've been using digital speed with fuel economy. I may just switch to analog speed and ditch fuel economy. I'll probably put the fuel economy up in one of the corners. Clean and easy.

Either way, this is by far the nicest cluster I've ever owned!

Re: Digital or Analog Speedo

I generally run digital with the oil pressure showing, average fuel economy in the upper left and distance remaining on the tank upper right. I will sometimes switch to analog depending on my mood. Both digital and analog are smooth and, according to the nav unit and my external Garmin, pretty accurate. On trips, I will periodically run the various engine gauges through just to make sure everything is looking ok.

Re: Digital or Analog Speedo

Digital with tire pressure below it. Need to redo the display information, there is some redundant information that I can find at a glance on the radio screen.

Initially drove with the "analog" speedo but did not like how jittery it appeared, overly crowded, and I have always preferred just a numeric readout of speed.

Re: Digital or Analog Speedo

Hi guys.
You can get the gps speed from the radio for accuracy. It's in trip info and trip computer.

Re: Digital or Analog Speedo

When I took delivery of the car first thing that I did was to set up the TomTom and to compare the dashboard speedo to the TT and the car's Navigator speed (in that trip computer section) to it as well.

At 100 km/h on the TT (straight, flat road) the car's digital speedo reads 102 km/h. The car's navigator is spot on with the TT.

At 110 km/h, our state's highest limit on freeways, the variation is about the same. 112 is 110 real. (well, as real as a GPS can be, I s'pose).

Put it this way - we have roads infested with speed cameras and cops with radar. And setting the cruise control to 4 kays over the posted limit I've yet to get a ticket in 15 years.

Re: Digital or Analog Speedo

i would go with the digital with the trip or fuel consumption. However, sometimes I use the analog for fun

The car will never do more than 140 km/h. And what with the restrictive speed limits and penalties here in Australia I doubt that I'll take it over 120 km/h.

So, if they allowed the user/driver to adjust the speedo display, say from 0 to 120 km/h (but with a high upper limit for where it's legal to do the speeds) it would be a better display.
I fully agree.

I use the analog gauge because I had a friend pulled over because the cop was able to look at his large digital gauge as he rolled up beside him and see what it was reading.

The cop told him "if I could read it from another vehicle, you ought to be able to read it from the driver's seat."

Re: Digital or Analog Speedo

Analog with fuel mileage. It's funny to see how long it stays at 3mpgs lol
8100 miles, lifetime average below 12 😆😇😈
