jeep compass ambient temperature

Hi Everyone,
I'm a first time jeep owner and i had a question. I just bought a 2008 4x4 Sport Compass but i noticed it my model doesnt show the outdoor temp. I was wondering if i bought an ambient temperature sensor would that be all i would have to do to get the temp to be displayed on the dashboard? I found this sensor,
thanks for any help that you all can provide.

We have a 2008 4x4 Sport Compass. Although I can find nothing about it in the owner's manual, if I press the trip odometer button in succession 4 times it reads odometer, trip A, trip B, and outside temperature. Hope this works for you too. As far as the sensor, I believe it's somewhere behind the grill. More on sensor here:
