2010 Chevrolet Camaro: Button, Button, Who's Got the Button?
October 05, 2009
Last night was the first time I've had to gas up our 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. And since it was dark and I'm not familiar with this car, I was a bit irritated when I couldn't find the switch to display the tripmeter on the instrument panel. I frantically felt around the IP trying to find that little knob but to no avail. Can you figure it out looking at the above picture? (BTW apologies if someone else has already blogged about this. I can't figure out how to look at the old Camaro posts. Aarrrgh! I've already reported this bug.)
OK, it was probably obvious by the way I framed the previous shot but when sitting back in my seat, this stalk is obstructed from view by the steering wheel. However, I was able to figure everything out without having to reach for the owner's manual since, once found, it's very easy to operate. You can look through Vehicle Information and Trip/Fuel Information and move through the items by turning those arrows at the end of the stalk up or down. The Set/Clear button is what you use to return the trip to zero.
The info is displayed in the Driver Information Center (DIC) in the center of the IP.
In the Trip/Fuel Information Menu you can look up:
- Digital Speedometer
- Trip 1
- Trip 2
- Fuel Range
- Average Fuel Economy
- Average Vehicle Speed
In the Vehicle Information Menu:
- Tire Pressure
- Remaining Oil Life
- Coolant Temp
- Battery Voltage
- Speed Warning -- This lets the driver set a speed they don't want to exceed. Hm.
