The message center is the central screen located on the dash of your car, inside the gauge cluster. It’s designed to provide supplemental information about various systems on your car. It also lets you customize certain aspects, such as whether the vehicle’s speed in the display is shown in miles per hour or kilometers per hour (not the speedometer), the distance you can drive on the fuel remaining in the tank and a great deal more. The key to using the system is the “Info” button. Pressing it will let you cycle through the various functions and interact with the system (customizing your settings, resetting certain things, etc.).
