Question Analog Speedometer

I was just wondering if anyone used the analog speedometer. The numbers are so small and close together. I didn't think I'd use the digital at first, but I can't live without it now.

Talking Analog vs. digital

I always look at the digital readout, don't even notice the analog one anymore.

If I could see the analog, I'd use it - but for my normal driving position, it is behind the wheel rim.

Basically never. Awkward location, "realistic" speeds are crowded way down on the dial, and the 25 mile increments are tough to read.

I occasionally glance at the analog to get a "rough" range; however, I tend to use the digital the most. I have also found I can judge my speed fairly accurately via the tachometer (of course, gear dependent).
