Digital speedometer?

Unless I'm really missing something the only speed indication is the analog gauge. There is no digital gauge? Seriously? No real time MPG digital either? I own a Hybrid Avalon, Prius and they have these simple must haves. I mean God knows how much I love this RAV. But seriously? No digital speed indication?

If you set the cruise control, it will show you the digital speed.

Care to give us a clue as to what year model and engine you are talking about? No crystal ball here. We don't really care about your other cars since this is a RAV4 forum.

An OBD2 adapter and phone app like Torque Pro will get you a digital speedo.

Sorry I do have a 2016 RAV4 limited hybrid. I have D used the cruise control and haven't ever seen digital speed. I have seen the set point for cruise control but not actual speed. I am using my Garmin with a OBD2 . It has a feature called gauges and Eco so I can get the information from my $200 Garmin. My question is the RAV with a Tech don't provider digital speed?

You can only see your digital speed when cruise is on and engaged - you see your speed at the top of the display between the gauges.

....and then you only see the speed your cruise is SET which is no help if you are accelerating to pass someone or slowing down. I agree with the OP that this was one dumb omission on Toyota's part.

It could be easily added via software into the guage cluster. The guage cluster gets CANbus data, so writing a few lines of code to display speed in the center LCD screen wouldn't be hard at all and costs $0 after it's implemented. Literally would only take me 1-2 work days to program and test.

So yea, i agree with the OP, it's kind of a dumb omission. Our dodge 2500 service trucks at work have it in the center lcd screen.
