Default Digital Speedometer

I wish the Insight had a digital speedometer option... is there a way to display a digital speedometer in MPH? I looked up the 2018 Accord because it seems similar and there's a way on that to display one but only in KPH (the opposite unit of the "real" analog speedometer).

Maybe some owner will speak up, or you could go by a dealer and read the owner handbook. I was with a salesman yesterday and was impressed with the wide variety of info that the dash could select and display, but I didn't see a digital speedo.

You can change the digital speedometer to MPH. See page 128 in the manual:

Thanks but I couldn't get it to work. The digital speedometer only appears in km/h.

Check out page 130. It says the following under Speed Unit:

1. Select the Power/Charge screen.
2. Press and hold the left selector wheel when you select the Power/Charge on the driver information interface. Each time you do this, the unit will change from mph to km/h or vice versa. After this, a confirmation screen will appear for a few seconds.

I think that is what I tried. Were you able to get that to work?

I actually don't even have mine yet. Could someone here try this out and see if this works for changing the unit on the digital speedometer?

If you are buying new, why not have the dealer set it up right.?

Default Digital Speedometer

Tried this on my EX and when you hold the button down it brings up the digital speedometer display in the center of the screen but in KPH. It also changes the odometer readout at the bottom of the screen to kilometers. When you hold it down again the odometer readout changes back to miles but the digital speedometer display in the middle of the screen disappears. If anyone finds a fix let us know, my wife really misses the digital speedometer display.
