I'm really glad they don't. I wasn't big on the whole e-CVT thing when I bought my Prius, or CVTs in general, but making fake shift points would ruin it even more. Their flexibility is the whole point; looking at the Scangauge, engine RPM is constantly fluctuating even on steady-state highway drives.
