Re: ambient temp --- whats the highest??

My one once was stuck on 43..

It was like 25 that day!

Does anyone know where the sensor is located that tells you the ambient temp?

Highest in GT-P 46 in Katherine NT November 2003, lowest 9 on highway near Stanthorpe.

Lowest in old AU2 0 outside Gayndah, I dont think it goes below 0.
