Remember, the probe measures "ambient" temperature, not "actual". Otherwise, you would get all sorts of variable readings depending on your speed (i.e. wind velocity affecting the readings).

The temperature readings at initial startup will not be correct. It stabilizes after about 5 minutes of driving.

So, I'm not sure if a simple thermometer test will do the trick...
