But you can only see gears when using the paddle shifters--that makes the dash display switch from P/D/R to gear numbers.
I was just browsing through some older threads and had a thought on this:
Would an OBDII reader show gear in use? I know there are a lot of bluetooth OBDII adapters that will send data to your smartphone. Maybe some will show the info.

Just a thought.

Hmmm...not a bad thought. I have a pretty old & clunky OBD reader with plug and wire for connecting to the port. I haven't noticed gears on it.

Anybody seen this on a newer reader?
