According to my dictionary: Gage: n. something, as a glove, thrown down by a medieval knight in token of challenge to combat.

So, I'm assuming if you're at a red light, and some kid next to you in a lowered STi starts revving his engine, you can hit this button and something like a sun visor will automatically be ejected and slapped to the pavement as a signal that you accept his challenge.

No? OK, fine. Chevy used an antiquated spelling to fit this particular button rather than swap it with the "trip" button below it -- which has plenty of space for a "u". Any way you cut it, it's wrong.
