Default on-board computer

Ok.. so you hold the settings button down till you hear a beep, and then you have a ton more menu's to go through with vehicle information... Now my question is.. anyone decipher all this mumbo-jumbo so I can use making use this info. All I have figured out is V equals Speedometer reading and there is also a voltage display... what do all the other numbers mean?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Wheel sensor values and steering angle and things like that. Coolant and speed are the only tangible values really.

The most useful ones are the voltage, engine temp (in celsius), velocity (in km/h). There is also a screen that shows fuel flow, though I don't know what the measurement scale is. This also shows a value that is equal to range.

ok, I know the voltage one... which one refers to engine temp? is there a seperate value for coolant temp or is coolant and engine temp the same? and fuel flow... possibly is psi? that would be more useful when the car gets turbo'd... Wheel sensors.... happen to show the tire pressue?... I'm getting distracted while driving and watching the numbers change trying to figure out the code.. lol
