I believe they calculate the value of speed pulse generator, and compares it with rpm signal. If it's like some readouts I've encountered on logging equipment, it has to be "set up", initially. I believe it'll show neutral, when stopped, even tho it's in gear. I doubt that's all that accurate. I wouldn't bother, myself. I'm with Exavid on this one. Knowing what gear one is in, will become second nature, after some time on bike.
