No it doesn't
I have always HATED having to look down a 6" hole to get my speed. So I downloaded a digital speedometer app on my phone, then used a magnetic mount to stick it on my windshield. I have been using it for 10+ years. You can also mount your phone flat on the dash, and select HUD. Everything on the screen will be backward, but it will reflect off the windshield at night PERFECTLY. Speed, GPS speedl limit data, even a google maps micro display arrow and distance to next exit
So during the day, and night I use the digital speedometer, but on long night trips I magnetic mount the phone to the top of the dash. It is really, really cool...and you never have to take your eyes off the road. I hate the three bin dash. The turbo I/P is better, but on the DC Beltway, taking your eyes off the road can = disaster.

There are tons of them. The one I finally chose was .99 cents and has no ads.
I think its called AA Speedometer or something. It is VERY accurate. Good luck man. I just liked that it looked Iike a Honda display as default. Then I added a new them for my 2015 to match my Alpine. I have 8 themes so far. Good luck man!! (y)
