Can't see milage b/c cruise control in on?!

On a roadtrip (9 states, 2,500 miles, Cherokee handled like a boss), cruising down a remote road, and my wife tells me to make a left in 2 miles. Would be nice if I knew when 2 miles would be! All because of a cruise control icon?!

Please tell me they're going to release an update that corrects this!

Usually tiny icon only?

'15 Trailhawk...set cruise and digital speedo disappears and it tells you what speed you've selected then that goes away and then just a small green icon shows upper right of digital speedo.


Can't imagine '14 cruise any different??

The OP has a Latitude. The difference between that, and the Trailhawk, is the Trailhawk gets the large color screen in the dash cluster, where the Latitude has the monochromatic screen. When you press the cruise control button, the icon appears in at the bottom of the screen where your odometer would usually be, along with the set speed. It's not malfunctioning, it's just an inconvenience.

If you can customize the display like the one in Limited/TH you can add your trip details like total miles.

Mileage is always displayed in my 2015 Trailhawk with the color EVIC at the bottom of the display. Nothing else is displayed in this area so it never disappears. I believe the monochrome EVIC is similar, at least according to the manual.

If the OP isn't able to see mileage, then something is wrong with his EVIC.

No, there is nothing wrong with the EVIC. I will take pictures to explain the difference after I leave the office. The color display and the monochrome display are two completely different animals. When you turn on CC with the monochrome display, the small section of the display that would usually show the odometer, is overwritten to display the CC symbol with the set speed.

Yep-- what he said -- no odometer when cruise on. Maybe it can be programmed differently though.
