Center Screen on '15 GT...what do you use?

Ok, totally dumb question...I think!

On the center screen (Between gauges) what do you display? It seems if you back all the way out it is just "type" of options. I just did a long road trip and the "Distance to Empty" was helpful, but not something I want there all the time! ...on my last car, you could at least default to a large digital spedo.

Am I totally missing something and totally "user error"?!

You view gauges of all your auxiliaries. Like air to fuel , electricity, inlet air temp etc. You just have to click right on them of press okak if I remember correctly.

Why does the hour meter on the trip meter always zero out after filling up? There's no way to restart it during normal operation unless you fill it up, at least that I can see. Glad to see somebody address the center info screen/

The display always seems to default to the trip meter/miles to empty category when starting up. Other options, and there are MANY, can be used during a given drive, but once the car is turned off, it defaults to the trip meter after start up.

I never thought about holding down the "OK" button to change the default category. As for the TP indicator, I once stumbled onto it and have never been able to find it again, it would be nice to be able to monitor that as my default selection.

I personally run the list of information with cylinder head temp, oil temp, air to fuel to make sure my rig is running right 100% of the time. I also wait until the heads are at 100 degrees before I'll take off or even back out of my parking spot. This ensures oil at the top of my engine and I idle with the clutch out so all my gears are getting properly lubricated before moving.

I tried the accelerometer once, found myself looking at it in a tight corner.... bad news bears lol but I DO check back and see if I beat my previous record in the corners.

Mine defaults to the accelerometer now I guess. I just assumed it always turns on to wherever you left it. I don't watch the meter but every once in a while I'll notice it change. I'm only up to the .8s haha

Got to gauge mode and scroll all the way through and your Tire pressure will come up. It doesn't list it, but will come up either before or after the miles to empty.

I usually keep the boost gauge up, that way I know when the blow off valve is going to close and the Paxton kicks in. Once the needle is to the boost side it's party time, stock it's useless though.

Mine always starts up with whatever was being displayed when the car was shut off.

I usually have mine on the the air fuel ratio meter. The only time I look at the trip screen is at a fill up when I reset it.

I switched from the trip meter function to the TP and held down the "OK" button and it defaulted to the TP function, like somebody on here said.
