You're kidding, right? When cruising, no I can't easily tell what gear I'm in ... I'm usually busy doing something else like talking on a conf call, checking something on the nav screen, listening to the traffic report, putting on my makeup (just kidding with that last one), etc. If the roads are slick and highway starts trending to stop-and-go, I just want to be able to switch to selectshift and have the damn car to tell me what gear it's in, that's all.

Aha! I never thought to try that, seems like it will solve the problem! I liked rex's idea of upshifting better than what I had been doing (which was nothing and just hoping a downshift would get me in the right gear when I needed it), but if the ok button works that will be great. Thanks for that!
