    And it's not any more accurate than the speedometer!

    Not for distance traveled, off about 4%

    Please look up the definition of precision.

    I think markabele is saying the PiP is the upper right box.

    It amazes me how many people still don't understand precision and accuracy! It's like they never took a basic junior high science class. My sister grades lab reports of 2nd and 3rd year undergraduate students in organic chemistry and even they don't understand what accuracy and precision is.

    I looked it up, what's your point!

    Forget it. Not everyone shares the same definitions or knowledge. It doesn't make anyone smarter or dumber than anyone else.

    Personally I go by the definition in the dictionary. Language would be hard if people could make up their own definitions to words.

    Even the dictionaries sometimes disagree with each other. A "definition" is simply a meaning someone wants to assign to a word.

    Off-topic, post's 26 through 29 above are a good example of the new multiple quote in action. Every time you quote you're stuck with another layer. It especially looks like hell on a small screen, like a cell phone.

    Not if you have a large cell phone screen! :) Looks fine on my Note 3.

    I think it is limited to 3 inception quotes. A quote in a quote in a quote in a post.

    It does improve when you rotate the phone to landscape mode. I guess it just feels like wandering around in a room full of fly paper ;)

    Uhhh... that is one of the few things that does make someone smarter or dumber than someone else. These definitions are a very basic and fundamental understanding that is required for any science field and should be required for all fields. This is taught in secondary schools and if the concept escapes you, then you are by other definitions dumber than those that can grasp it.

    With the Prius consistently telling me I'm doing 7~8% better than the reality, I see a pattern, whatever the hell it's called. ;)

    Where was it that they taught not to insult other people? Guess you were absent that day. I am sometimes accused of being condescending but this post takes the cake. Totally inappropriate. Reported.

    My question is how does a discussion about odometer and speedometer turn into a a discussion of definitions?( maybe by a wise a....)
