Ext. Temp. Display?

Sat Feb 15, 2020 4:13 pm

I can't find a reference to how to have the external temperature displayed all the time. Page 89 of the manual mentions an ice warning but nothing else.
Does anyone know how this can be done?

There's a pushbutton on the end of the turn signal stalk labeled (on my US model) 'BC'. My wife theorized that it somehow dispensed some sort of birth control. Nevertheless, I tried it, and it toggles through the miscellaneous data display modes on the column mounted console -- including outside temperature.

Thank you for the help. This car is a rolling technology festival!

There's more:

Go into the 'Settings' menu,
select 'Instrument cluster'
then you can choose which
parameters to display as
you scroll through.

However I still struggle to master
the two data sets found in the
"Onboard info" and the "Trip computer" and their various
Reset options...
