Trip computer - digital combined instrument panel

Updated 7/23/2018

The car's trip computer records and calculates vales such as e.g. distance, fuel consumption and average speed whilst driving.

The information from the trip computer can be shown in the combined instrument panel and operated with the controls on the left-hand stalk switch and with the combined instrument panel's menu.

Checking and settings can be made immediately after the combined instrument panel is automatically illuminated in connection with unlocking. If none of the trip computer's controls are actuated within approx. 30 seconds after the driver's door has been opened then the instrument extinguishes, after which either key position II or engine starting is required in order to operate the trip computer.


If a warning message appears when the trip computer is used then the message must first be acknowledged before the trip computer can be reactivated.

  • Acknowledge the message by briefly pressing the indicator stalk OK button.
