    Arrow Clock, External Temperature Gauges for a '02 WRX ?

    Hi,

    I have a black '02 WRX sedan. It's a terrific car, but I do miss the digital external temperature readout I had in my earlier car. Does anyone know if this is available and where ?

    The previous owner had taken the clock and clock pod off, to install the 3-gauge pack(turbo, volts, oil temp) --- which is great, but I do miss seeing the time Does anyone know if there is any other way to install a clock ?

    Thanks !

    Unless you custom-fit something.. your only other option is buying a new headunit with a clock readout on it.

    Does anyone make a clock to fit in the 3-gauge center pod? You could get rid of the volt meter (who needs that anyway?) and substitute it with a clock that looks like a gauge. I just wear a wristwatch.

    External temp is stock on my EDM inside the guage cluster.. I also have defi pod where the clock used to be so my clock is now on my aftermarked sony stereo...

    Get a upgraded stereo with mp3 playback.. It's nice, even in a rally car And with mp3's you don't need 1 lbs of cd's
    And if the usdm don't have outside temp in the clutster, you can always get a new and cooler one

    I have seen it.. But I don't remember where... But if you choose this route.. you'll have to find it before you buy the rest of the guages, so they all match in looks and colors

    I would rather just get a upgraded stereo..

    Dakota Digital makes a gauge that is 2 1/16th inches size that has a compass, thermometer and clock in one unit. That might work for you.

    OMG, that is ugly as all hell Yes it's functional, but there are more ways than that to get a clock in our cars.

    I bought a remote mount radar detector that has a built in temp display like this one.

    Mounted the display unit where the ashtray was.

    Having your clock and guages, too........
    Has anyone tried a clock relocation to the ashtray? Maybe the clock is too wide, I haven't taken one out to measure but, if you don't smoke, the visibility of the location seems ideal.
