G35 Engine high temperature

Hi All, last week the engine coolant plastic bottle broke where the cap locks and began leaking the engine coolant, I did not notice it until someone told me the car is leaking too much water. I stopped the car, waited till it cooled and found that it lost almost 5 liters (almost 1 US Gallon) of engine coolant. Bought a new bottle and replaced it.
The issue is that if something in the cooling system breaks and loose all its coolant, the temperature gauge does not show it because the radiator thermostat is not in contact with water anymore and this way you will loose a six thousand dollars engine for a silly reason like a blown rubber tube.
I am thinking of installing a digital thermometer with the bulb placed on the engine block and set the alarm to warn me in similar cases.
Did anyone had this issue before ? And what was done to bypass the problem of the misleading temperature dashboard gauge ?
It is strange how a sophisticated car like the Infiniti with all its computer gadgets and sensors all over the place could miss a serious issue like this one.

This just happened to mine. But, last week, Dobbs people replaced the starter. This week I have a blown engine.
