Default Reordering items on the dash computer?

Is there anyway to reorder the items on the dash computer? I hate that the miles until empty is at the top but I have to scroll down to the MPG Average. Whoever thought of that needs to be kicked. Can I reorder those items in anyway?

Nope...changing the order is not a customer option. I doubt that a dealer tech could do it either. It's the way the code was written for the EVIC display.

Maaan, there has to be a way to get that reorganized. It's freaking irritating!

What is really irritating is that the radio controls are on the back side of the steering wheel. No one fools with the dash indicator once its set up. They should have put that stuff behind the wheel and put the radio controls in front. That I would like to switch.

It is what it is. I'm not crazy about the order I have to scroll through to read certain things on the EVIC on my SRT8 but I've gotten used to it.

Now that might be doable. I agree, radio controls on the back? What were they thinking???

I'd really like to be able to see the MPG average and the miles to empty on the same page too.

And on the radio controls, I kinda like em on the back side of the steering wheel. Got more dexterity with the rest of my fingers than with my thumbs. It would be real nice if there were a way to scroll backwards through your radio presets though in addition to being able to go forward through them. Pushing the little button 11 times to get to the preset numbered 1 less than the one you're on seems a little ridiculous

I also like the buttons on the back of the steering wheel. I had the buttons on the front on my Tundra and found myself looking down to push the buttons. I agree that the average mpg would be helpful to be with the miles to empty. I find that if I see the average mpg, I drive in a more fuel efficient manner.

The buttons were on the back of my 2004 Ram and 2006 Pacifica too. I agree, a little tricky to learn, but once you do it is über easy to use.

I wish I had the radio controls too.

Maybe if we request the re-order of the items through Chrysler directly, then they can put it into a future flash update?
