Of course it can only say OK or LOW, when measured with the engine running, because the oil is circulating, the oil pump generating different pressures depending on the RPMs. Generally, oil level is measured with engine NOT running, to get an exact reading from the oil pan, or oil reservoir on dry sump engines. And since oil expands in volume depending on temperature, for those that measure to the ML, the manufacturers specify operating temp, even though cold temp would be close enough even for the user in Alaska in the depth of winter. This display is just practical for folks who just want to ride, and once a in blue moon during the ride wanna know they're ok because they just remembered they haven't checked the oil since last oil change.
