    Digital display of speed
    « on: 2013-06-17 16:16:41 »
    Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and this is my first post.  I have owned my 1600GTL for less than one week.  When I first started riding it I would get a digital display for speed on the center console.  For some reason that is no longer working and the owners manual doesn't seem to talk about it one way or the other.  Does anyone know what I need to do to get this display working again.


    Thanks,


    Gary

      Does it not show on the quick guide card that you should have.

        Are you by any chance listening to the radio?
        If so, you can't see the digital speedo when the radio is on.

          It would seem you can only get this on recent models. I have an early 2011 model with up to date software upgrade and I can't get the digital speedo with the radio off. Can any one else confirm this ?

            It is only available on 2013 models.  I have a 2011 GTLE with a 2013 dash and all the latest software.  No digital speedo.  As it only works with the audio unit switched off its as good as useless anyway.
