Exactly. I don't care if my engine temperature is 156 degrees or 157 degrees. I just need to know if it is in the normal range. An analog temp gauge tells me that with a glance (even without my glasses on!), and almost without a thought. That's why I strongly prefer analog gauges for the engine functions.
