  • Speedo.....

    I don't use the needle at all... Hate driving other cars that don't have it as I just don't look.

    I don't look at my MASSIVE speedo. Just digital dash read out.

            not exactly feng shui, but i get the point

            suppose I could also poke my eyeballs out and dangle them on the rear view mirror

                Well I didn't know there was a digital speedo in the options. Must have a look for it.

                      The digital speedo is in the black screen in the centre of the dash - between all the dials

                      [not showing in this pic as it's the only one of the dash Ive got]

                      Yes Ron I know where it is mate but I have tried all the options trip computer/mpg etc etc I don't think I have it.

                        My apologies, thought you had trouble locating it.

                        It's the left hand stalk that accesses it...

                        ...then you probably knew that.

                        No need for a apology sir I'm just getting more and more pissed of with the spec of siggy I have bought. Nothing seems compatible or VX have just left it out........ Ran out of screen wash last week and got no warning so now I know I don't have a visible low screen wash warning on the dash read out. Ron I should have bought a SRI I'm a tit.

                          I assumed the OP was referring to the Digital Speedometer, as available on the 2014MY, which is specified as a factory fit option

                          This then gives a variety of styles of speedo, including digital and analogue displays

                          I have the exclusiv model not the best name for it as it lack in a lot of things. Should have done my home work better..... Lesson learnt.

                            I've just found an image from an original analogue speedometer

                            In some trim levels (such as the SRi) this features the Driver Info Display, and this includes a digital speed read out

                            Therefore if your car is an original Insignia and lower trim level then it won't show a digital speed

                            However, as above, in the newer 2014MY there is a factory fit option for a completely digital speedometer display

                            Yes mate I've had a good look and I don't have it. Thanks for checking.
