My new Q5 2021 is not showing which gear I'm in like my old one.
Is this intended or can I change a setting?

Mines the same, it only does it when you put it in manual mode. I think it says the gear when it’s in dynamic also.

Thanks Peter - surely that can't be right?

What happens when you use the paddle-shifts?

Paddle shifting shows which gear your in. It makes no sense only showing in these settings it must be possible to turn it on.

Does it really matter? A bit of a useless novelty in an automatic. After a week or two, I never looked at the gear indicator. More interested in the gear I was wearing :cool:

I think you're more likely to use the Paddle Shifts if you can see what gear you're in already.

I know you can see the Rev Counter regardless, but you're shifting into oblivion if you don't already know what gear you're in.

IMO as an enthusiastic driver, it makes sense before shifting into another gear manually - to know the gear you are already in.

He already said he has gear indicator when using paddles.

When pushing on I have no time to be distracted by rev counter / gear indicator. I can easily judge by sound and feel when it is time to change up or down.
