One of the enhanced screens for sure. Right now, I'm going back and forth between the two.

Also, I prefer to keep my tire pressure displayed in the middle. Because I'm paranoid about such things :)

Classic enhanced, I like the battery/ICE readout better when it's on the same side - readable at a glance.

Classic enhanced as well, I toggle between speed limit and tire pressure displayed in the center. This would be a good survey to set up.

Classic Enhanced.

I generally just keep the extra large speedo readout as Waze shows me the speed limit.

I prefer Classic Enhanced on the driver information center. It would be great if we could customize a sequence of info display items so we would not have to scroll through the list to get to the ones we want. For example when you start Volt, first the tire pressure would display, then the engine coolant temperature would display, then the Flux Capacitor status would display "Fluxing" (Oops, that would be for a Delorean.) Finally, back to the large speedometer.

Typically Modern Enhanced. I like the kW readout at the top.

Question about Classic Enhanced: Sometimes it briefly shows a red ring on the inside of the circle instead of green. Might have something to do with cruise control. Any ideas?

Yeah, anytime you set or resume cruise control it will have the red ring.

Classic Enhanced. Never was a fan of the kW reading next to the speedometer last time I used Modern Enhanced.

I prefer Modern Enhanced because I like to see when the engine is on (look for yellow on the right) and how it's powering the drivetrain (compare with yellow/green on left). I try and hypermile when I'm in extended range mode and modern enhanced has the best information for doing that (I've managed to get 49 MPG when it was 45 *F outside)

I have tried classic enhanced but had difficulty understanding how the ball on the left related to the energy usage displayed on the right side. The kw usage would go up into the 40s sometimes but the ball didn't always follow it.

Ball is your g-sensor. kW is how much power is being absorbed by regen. I look at it as try to use brake pedal to regen as much as you can, safely, while keeping the ball centered. If the ball starts leaving the center, that probably means some friction braking is happening.

Similar when accelerating. I can accelerate as many kW I want, just keep the ball centered. No concrete idea why I do this, but it feels right to me.

Has anyone found a screen that shows what the voltage is in the conventional 12 Volt battery? I would like to be able to check its status from time to time. If it goes dead for anyreason, I believe you are "dead in the water" .

The Volt doesn't display that information since the 12V is rarely used for anything. If you have an OBD-II reader, you can get the 12V voltage from there.

So does anybody know specifically what the 12V battery is used for? I think it is a critical component and being able to monitor its voltage would be nice. With the vehicle running I would think its voltage should be close to 14 volts and then at rest somewhere around 12.6-12.8V. If it gets below 12V at anytime there could be a problem looming.
