Are you ever curious as to what the outside temperature is as you're driving? Does your car have an outside temperature gauge?

We do. I think it's great just because it satisfies my odd curiosity to know what the temperature is outside.

It is a good idea really come to think about it! for all cars to have from now on.

I have not heard of an outside temp gauge with cars?
I have often thought about the outside temp from time to time...One would even more so if travelling over a dessert.
Oh! jonaj, as long as it's a cold 'dessert' it should be good! Lol!

The thought never crossed my mind before. I didn't even know cars had them. Then again, our car is about 20 years old.
His does. Mine doesn't. The weird thing is . . . . if we are in his car I always ask what the temp is . . . . I never think about it otherwise.

No. It doesn't.
Mine doesn't but i wish i did.
Yes, our cars do and they are quite accurate. I feel the heat and am always checking the temperature when in the car. It's amazing that the temperature can be 2° higher in my suburb on the way home from my daughter's home which is 2 suburbs away.
As my car's aircon died years' ago, my outside temp gauge is windows down, so I know full well how bee hot it is!
No, neither car has an external temp gauge, but we both have one fitted from birth. A single finger out the window, works a treat.
Has variable sensory readings, from freezing cold to b''' hot.

Mind you it varies greatly between static temps non moving vehicle to the variable speed affected wind chill factor on any given day.

We do something completely different on the bike thou, we wring out the sweaty shirts and weigh the water, not accurate but a good indicator of just hot or boiling hot.

Climate control systems need them, to keep the internal temps roughly 7 deg lower than external temps, and it is also curiosity breaker for occupants.

They are a gimmick really.
Mine has both but I do not know how to change from one to another and dare not touch the dials for fear of losing the ones I really like -the manual is so big, it is frightening.
