Outside temperature display
The outside temperature is shown when the display is activated.
Fig. 10 Display: Outside temperature
At temperatures below +5°C a snowflake symbol appears next to the temperature display. This is to warn the driver to take extra care when there is a risk of ice on the road.
When the vehicle is stationary or travelling at very low speeds, the temperature displayed may be slightly higher than the actual outside temperature as a result of the heat radiated from the engine.
The temperature units can be set to °F or °C on the MMI* or sound system control console. The outside temperature is automatically displayed in the units you have selected. Please refer to the Operating Manual for the MMI* or sound system.
Do not rely on the outside temperature display as an ice warning.
Please bear in mind that there may be patches of ice on the roads even at outside temperatures around +5°C.
