There is no "First page" option on mine


Can you really blame the Fiat dealership for something that may not be available on some versions or something an update would fix if there is one?

Re: Can't see spedo

My experience with 2 Fiat dealers both said they would look into it and get back to me both have not bothered Obviously if they said it is not available that would be that and I will have to live with using my GPS as a speedo lol .

Re: Can't see spedo

Just joined the Forum and this is the first thread I've looked at as it applies to me. I can's see the speedo either and I'm certainly not the tallest person in the world. I can sometimes get the digital speed on the central display, then the next day it's gone, comes back a couple of days later.and so on. I now drive with the sat nav on all the time as then I have some idea of speed. This brings up another problem. The sat nav speed is always 3-5 mph slower than the indicated speed, I've checked this on both the digital and analogue dial they both read the same, but the sat nav is always slower. i.e Speedo shows 70mph, sat nav 66mph

Re: Can't see spedo

This is normal behaviour. The speedo always is calibrated to show a speed which is some % too high. This is not Fiat but industry specific. The sat nav speed should be 100 % correct.

Re: Can't see spedo

Just had my first speeding ticket in 35years of driving 100 plus 3points I was doing 35mph in 30 limit thanks Fiat for blocking view of speedo.My local Fiat dealer says some models have digital speedo in middle of dash which is visible and some don't nothing they can do .Been on the phone again to Fiat this time they gave me a case number and said someone will call me next week I do not have much hope so just ordered a portable GPS Speedo 80 which i hope i to put somewhere permanent which looks ok.If Fiat can't help I'm going to contact Watchdog and Newspapers they might listen to them as you can see I'm pretty angry😡 If I get a solution I will let you all know.

Re: Can't see spedo

Don't think you'll have any luck with FIAT. I too had problems seeing the crucial 30 MPH bit of the speedo but after a bit of playing with the wheel and seat adjustments I resolved it. I'm 6'4". A friend of mine who is, coincidentally, the same height as me and has the same name and age as me, got pictured doing 37 but was offered a 'speed awareness course'. Better than 3 points and doesn't affect you insurance ( I was told).
