Mileage

Post by Smudge » Tue Dec 12, 2017 9:43 pm

I have a 2017 B8 Passat Estate GT with the digital dash where the sat-nav map can be displayed between the dials. There are various settings on what else can be displayed but I can't find a way to show the mileage on the bottom row where it currently shows the trip odometer - surely there's a simple way to do this?


Thanks!

I'm sure mine shows the mileage on the bottom. Disappears when the cruise control is on though I think.

Sorry - should have been a little more specific! I know I can see the mileage with the ignition on as shown above, I want to see it al lthe time while driving instead of the trip odometer!

Thanks.

i am sure if you click the OK button on the steering wheel it toggles between the different views.....

will need to check though as I don't use this that often

I'm sure it's there all the time when I'm driving unless I'm using cruise control.

Thanks jmagee - I have the adaptive cruise that is apparently always 'on' so hides the mileage. If i turn it off (which I never have) then I can see the mileage. Bit annoying as I'd rather see that all the time rather than the trip, but at least I know how to see it now without having to turn the bloody engine off!

Knew it would be something really simple.....
