    I like having the "trip" display on the center console. However, I can't find anyway to scroll to Trip A and Trip B. I've looked at the manual but can't find any information there either. Is there a way to see Trip A and Trip B on the center console?

    Thanks in advance

    IMG_3477.jpg Prior to 8.0, you can't do that. In 8.0 you can display from 2-4 trip meters but there are only 2 that are resettable.

    It's in the new trips interface:

    You have to have 2 items selected. You can rename Trip A and Trip B but you can't add a C (unfortunately). You can show 2, 3, or 4 on your dash. I use one for monthly mileage and one for life time but would really have liked a third for special trips. Still, it was a nice upgrade which was free and I appreciate it.

    I posted about 50 pictures of the new interface/updates on my blog here:

    I have a pre-AP "Classic" car so no images of AP. If you have anything else you'd like to hear about on 8.0 just let me know while you go through the painful wait.

    I could probably figure it out, but since you know, how do you rename Trip A and Trip B?

    You press on the blue text for the trip name and a little box pops up where you can enter something different. Similar to how you name your car.

    @tliving - very cool and thanks for the tip on renaming. V8.0 just gets better and better the more I learn about it so I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival. I have AP and the upgrade will definitely improve safety margins on my commute. Definitely gonna add your blog to my feed reader. :)
