I don't like the idea that you often need to look at the center screen while driving
I'm little disappointed that mach e don't have an option to add hud.
So does anyone know how much info can the 10 inch instrument screen show? Beside basic speed/rpm/battery, can it show the navigation map or navigation direction? How about media info? And maybe status of driving assistance system?

It shows proximity alerts (ex. car to the left rear) and the functions of various autonomy systems.
there is also the standard array of indicator icons (lights on, tire pressure low, vehicle on, service soon, etc). These persist after you have dismissed the pop-up alerts.
For me a HUD is one of those items that is not a necessity. And sometimes can be distracting, messing with my focal-point. But that鈥檚 my preference.

Disappointed you can not customize instrument cluster. Not only did ford decide which items it was important for me to see but where i should see them at.

The car has been off and on several times but no luck. I also went to Nav and requested "cancel route" no luck. I'll try Carplay Waze (if I can find it) and see if that works. Thanks

1000% agree. should be able to display what you like and where you like it at. HUD would take it if it was there.

Of all the things they should have done if not full on customizable was give "face" options, like analog looking dials for speed and charge, etc. From what I understand, the digital instrument cluster on the Mustang coupe can be customized to display different info.

That would be nice. The data displayed is good, let us liven it up a bit with skins.

I went out today the "flag" and the 1 mile are gone and the "flag" is now at the bottom of the display indicating I guess that it's at the destination?

My checkered flag showed up whilst I was driving at 90 mph on the interstate barely keeping up with traffic. I thought it meant you are speeding.

I think that at 90MPH it means the race is over.

So when I had the demo, they had it display in the center screen the miles per kwh that I was averaging as I drive, I got my car yesterday, I can't figure out how to get that to display, I couldn't find it in the manual but I'm pretty overwhelmed with all the other things I'm trying to figure out so I easily could've overlooked.

I don't have my Mach E, so I'm book learning what stuff is supposed to do.

One thing I can't figure out is what the small screen just above the steering column does (in Yellow below).

Can anyone tell me what titillating happenings are born here?

Also, is there a difference between P and N? Both seem to lock the wheels.

@JIm in TX your circle is around the Driver Monitoring System (DMS) camera and the infrared lights aren鈥檛 visible to the eye, but illuminate your face in the darkness. It will be used for driver attentiveness monitoring with BlueCruise. It ensures you鈥檙e paying attention and not sleeping, reading, etc

Ive read its a glitch, its suppose to be miles to destination. Set a destination in the NAV then cancel it, and have read that makes it go away.

One of the tiles on the screen shows current drive mph per kwh, hit that tile and the big screen with more info shows up.

P is for PARK.
The N is indeed neutral, but there are additional automatic precautions the car uses to prevent it from rolling, such as AUTO HOLD. To actually put the car in neutral where it is free to roll takes both the selector in N and the center L button needs to be pushed. This will work for 30 min, such as in an automatic car wash. Do not use this for towing, there is a special procedure for that.
Here is the owners manual instructions for Temporary Neutral Mode:
ENTERING TEMPORARY NEUTRAL MODE

  1. Power your vehicle on.
  1. Bring your vehicle to a complete stop.
  1. Press and hold the brake pedal.
  1. Shift into neutral (N).
Note: An instructional message appears.
  1. Press the low (L) button.
Note: A confirmation message appears when your vehicle enters the mode.
  1. Release the brake pedal.
Note: Your vehicle is free to roll.
  1. Switch your vehicle off.
Note: Do not tow your vehicle in this mode.
Note: The neutral (N) indicator on the transmission selector may flash in this mode.
