Digital speed readout in info screen between gauges

So I wanted this in my 2012 SE.. and now in the St even more.
The basic problem is the small gradations in the analog speedo.. In the ST it is even worse.
Like a 5mph jump is about 2mm..
Anyway, IMO it would seem the adding of another screen into the info screen would be super easy.
Have a large mph with a tenths of mph perhaps in a half size font.

to really make it fun have the background change color accordingto the speed.
Blue for all speeds up to say 55mph. then yellow for 56 to 75
Then red after 76 And when you hit 90 or more it starts flashing red..

(I swear I would run up to 100 just to watch it flash red LOL.

Anyway The basic idea of a digital speedo one could use IF one wanted..
I mean in areas with heavy police speed control, knowingthe exact speed one is going..
Like around here 9 over is no problem. 11 over is a ticket most of the time.
10 is a maybe...

If you just want a digital read out you can pick up a gps speedometer. They make small ones that you can mount just about anywhere on the dash. Not too sure about adding in another screen to the info screen

I did not know about those..
I checked Amazon.. Hmmm maybe...

Earlier I called Ford customer service. after three people all telling me they are not the person to talk to.. I guess Ford has no one they actually want to hear from, about anything.
The Social Ford site.. Is really messed up, I tried four ways to post a comment and none worked. Though I found a few other folks basically saying the same thing I want, but for other Ford cars.

The basic comment from Ford, "You can have it in any color as long as it is black" still holds some truth. Ford's way or the highway..
Asking them to change something? hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah ha hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah ha hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah hah ha hah ha hah hah hah ha hah ha hah ha hah hah ...

I would like a heads up display on the windshield. No looking away from the road to check speed. It could work in conjunction with the navigation which shows posted speed limits.
