I have 2016 manual trans and I’m the tach is a digital display of what gear your in. I don’t know how to explain this bout the digit number looks stupid as it has full of lines through it. Is there a way to post a picture so I can show what I mean?
First thought in my head: "gear shifter to the right? What are you talking? It's to the left.", but then I looked at the country you're from and understood why you said soYes this works on AT when using the gear shifter to the right to select gears - but not when using steering wheel paddles.
I totally understood how it works. But in my case, when I use gear shifter to switch to manual - it shows basically the same info as if I would just use paddle shifters. It DOES NOT show gear change arrow. In my manual this function is with asterisk, saying that it's an option on some models. Most likely it can be activated in some of car's modules.Yes some of us drive on the 'other' side of the road! should have made it clearer.
When you push the gear selector into manual mode (to the right in my car UK/Irish/Japan - to the left in Europe and USA)
Then you get the gear change info coming up in the LH display (which is also different as autos have the Analogue Rev counter/Digital speedometer/HUD). If you just use the flappy paddles to change gear then only the current gear is shown in the display - not the gear change arrows.
All this info is in the manual and as far as I can see the car behaves exactly as stated in the manual
Hope that's clearer
