The figures at the left are the ambient air temp (outside temp in celsius) David.

Example, today we had 90+F here. I had the thermometer in the center vent while parked at work. When I got in, the thermometer read 125F. Windows down, A/C blowing high - max cold, within 5 minutes the thermometer was showing 40F at center vents, dropped to 38F by the time I got home (still with the driver's window down - my favorite way to ride ).

You can pick up an accurate A/C thermometer at your local parts shop. I got mine for something like $5.00. Registers from 0F to 220F.
