Angry Trip Computer..meh

Not sure I love the Mazda trip computer....

Coming from a 2004 VW passat... with both single trip readout and cumulative trips display..I miss that info breakdown.

Also, does the CX-3 trip computer record distance of a trip? That's really useful information that seems to have been omitted. Anyone else feel the same way?

TRIP COMPUTER
The following information
can be selected by pushing
the or of the INFO
button on the steering wheel.
• Approximate distance you
can travel on the available
fuel (RANGE)
• Average fuel economy
• Current fuel economy
• Average vehicle speed
• To reset, push and hold
the INFO button for more
than 1.5 seconds.

There is a trip A and a trip B by cycling the right hand button up on the instrument panel. The trip A button also resets the fuel consumption data.

Just a thought. Some of the controls are on the opposite side on the left hand drive models. The button might be on the left but it is clearly marked :-)

well

Looks like between the trip A and trip B displays and now the Fuel Economy Monitor app. I'll have the data I want.

Just read about the fuel economy monitor tonight so I'll give that a try in the morning.
