Okay this is driving me crazy ... when switching to selectshift the screen just shows a big area of verbiage saying its in selectshift mode (duh) but not what gear you're in. Reason it's so annoying is that the gear is usually a surprisingly high one, like I'm going 60km and its in 5th or something like that. So then as I approach an area where I want to engine brake and downshift thinking its going to bring it into 3rd, it only goes to 4th so does nothing at all and I end up having to hit brakes anyway.
IMO selectshift is useless when you have to guess what fricking gear you're in when you first use it. Am I doing something wrong? Is there some setting I can change this with? Thanks.
Pressing the "ok" button gets rid of the notice on mine. Then it shows the gear number at the bottom of the screen.
When putting the car into S it will display being in sport mode. Hit OK and that screen goes away. Then, when you use select-shift, it will have the gear pop up near the bottom of the screen.
Like 74gtstang and Katastrophe mentioned, when in SelectShift mode, the gears will show next to your odometer, guys. I hope this helps.
