Where is the thermometer on a car typically located? Dashboard temp read-outs always seem absurd.

Everytime I notice a temperature read-out on a car dashboard, it's always seemed ludicrous to me. Today, the temperature was about 92 in Sacramento, but the digital readout in my parents' Volvo made the bold claim that SOMEthing was 115 degrees F.
What is the typical location for this thermometer in a car?
What environment is this read-out supposed to be telling you about? Outside the car? The car's interior?
Where on a car could you put a thermometer, such that you would minimize the chance of a biased result?
