Off the top of my head... Using the right hand side scroll wheel, navigate to the info screen. The one that shows temps etc. Click the scroll wheel to get to the menu. Go to settings>display>menu scope. From there you can select what screens will show when you scroll through the display. G-Force is one of them. When you are on the G-Force screen you can click to show the max readings and also reset.

Do you have sport Chrono? If not then no joy.

For $20 you can download Harry Laptimer (Petrolhead Edition) and get G-forces via your phone.

Also, it has lots of other features that can be used for autocross or track days.

Actually, the Rookie Edition ($9) might do this too but I'm not sure.....I use Petrolhead Edition in my vintage race car.

Without Sports Chrono you can still add G force as one of the main PCM display fields.

As per the attached image (I don't have sports Chrono).
