Always on. When I'm driving a car without it, I find myself constantly looking for it and not knowing how fast I'm going.

Exact same here

My wife hates it... even with it off she says she can still see it.

I have mine on ALL the time. I haven' t looked down at the speedo for so long, I forgot what it looks like. Only thing I keep a eye on is my engine temp.

Mine is always on! I love it. So did mom, but Dad always positioned it all the way down so no one could see it instead of just turning it off.

I just wish I could still see it with sunglasses on, thats pretty much the reason I dont wear sunglasses

-The one time I did (Also the one time I forgot my wallet) was the first time I received a haro

Always on in my Prix, and its pretty well done, show temperature, indicators, Check Gages warnings, compass, speed, CD # and track or radio station, with TapShift on it shows the gears. Pretty neat, albeit gimmicky.

Once I'm in the Aurora, I don't even realize it or become bothered by it not being there.

Just something you adapt to as car swapping goes.
