Lexus has gotten much more independent in recent years, even developing F sport. I believe they used to have sport parts from TRD

WTH, I know public Schools in the US leave a lot to be desired, but really? You can't read a analogue speedometer? Seems people can find the most petty little things to P&M about.��

Hi,

The issue I have with the anolog gauge is how far out it is.

For instance To achieve 70mph as indicated by external satnav

Satnav reading 70mph
IPhone reading 70mph (using speed app)
ODB2 reading 71mph (HUD)
Anolog reading 78mph
Cruise setting 78mph

So why is this so far out when the ODB2 information is spot on. You are better off using an external HUD unit if you want an easy and more accurate way to monitor your speed.

Thanks

Not so "petty" for me. On my daily route there are multiple speed cams. The difference between 40mph, and 42mph, is US$40.

And I've been driving for over 40 yrs. The first time I encountered a digital speedo was on my 2005 Prius, and my 2002 Tundra still has a traditional dial. So I can read an analog gauge just fine... when it's designed properly.

I frequently want to maintain "x5mph" (35, 45, 55, or 65) without cruise, but Toyota made those particular indicator bars on the R4H's analog gauge annoyingly small.

All-in-all, the lack of a way to display one's current speed digitally seems like a silly oversight that could be rectified with a simple MID update. The car itself certainly has the data!

$20 OBD2 HUD may work for you.

I have this device on my other car:

https://www.amazon.com/Cousduobe-Dis.../dp/B07CNNWZXJ

I got mine for $20 on eBay. It works quite nicely. It has an ambient light sensor and the brightness adjusts automatically. The only gripe is that you have double reflections from both glass surfaces but you stop noticing it after a few days. Installation takes a few minutes. It even has a calibration setting: 100% would show the true speed while 108% would match the analog speedometer (which by design shows a somewhat higher speed).
