A little clarification of terminology: ALL odometers are digital. Some are mechanical and some are electronic, but all are digital (which means showing digits instead of the dial and pointer of an analog gauge). Is anyone here old enough to remember digital clocks (with mechanical drive) that had numbers that flipped to change? Similarly, my 93 Allante has analog gages that are electronic (the LCD screen shows an analog gauge, even though it is generated electronically).
