Gauge display

Was fooling around with my truck last night and the displays. On the gauge display it has three pages; 1) oil and trans temps, 2) compass, and 3) I haven't figured out. Right now the third screen is just a blank screen and only shows direction in the upper right corner. Can someone please tell me what this is for? Can the first gauge screen be customized to show other perimeters like maybe DEF level?

I have been told the blank screen is for driving at night so you can black it out and not have a screen shining in your face.

I have 5 screens... The 3rd one on mine is MPG: instantaneous and average MPG. But everyone of my screens has multiple options of what / how to look at the info.

What package you guys have?

its for when you have a trailer hooked up. you can log which trailer you are using and it keeps track of how many miles are on that trailer and what level you use on the brake controller

He is talking about the gauge display Not the other displays

Once you get to the gauge display, Press the right or left arrows ( Not the up or down) and you will toggle thru the gauges and compass and the third screen is still blank. I suspect it is for future info, But nothing has been programmed into it.

And I've seen NOTHING about us consumers being able to customize this.

Are these displays optional? I only have up and down arrows, the left and right keys are blank.
