Yeah, thanks. In the full display mode of PRNDS, I can just barely see the current gear over to the right. Works best at night, in the daytime is not as good even in max bright mode, and if you wear polarized sunglasses, not at all.
It does confirm my guess that it doesn't like to go below 3rd except at a full stop.
Suspect some mods to get better CAFE numbers.... wonder if the export models have to put up with this.
