Hi,

I can see the engine coolant temperature from the center display. When driving on highway this weekend (it was a warm weekend), it shows 185 F.

Is there something like a gauge from traditional cars (the one that has an arm that indicates you are sitting between H and C (or) digital version of some sort)?

From the manual, the car will show the warning light when the engine coolant temperature is too hot. But I am wondering if there is any other way to see if my engine temperature is "within" range.

Thanks!

It's operating with in range. Most thermostats are 182 to 185 (once the engine gets to that temperature they open and send coolant to the radiator). You don't want and engine operating to cool, below that, or too high.

You can set one up with an ODBII interface, but, why? The engine is fully computer-controlled. A warning light is sufficient.
