    Question Switching the odometer to kilometers instead of miles?

    I haven't really found a good solution to this one yet, if it exists normally.
    I know you can change the average consumption from MPG to km/L, but that's not what I'm after. I'm after switching the odometer itself to display kilometers instead of miles. For no good reason besides I think it'd be cool.

    Mirage in question is a 2018 G4 ES. Is it something I can change? The manual doesn't really give me a hand there besides with the consumption. Please and thank you.

    I can't answer your main question, but the clip below sort of shows the variety of items found in ETACS. It was shared by someone adding cruise to their Mirage.

    This is also true! But that's not my goal!! The car only has ~5,030 miles on it! (And admittedly that's probably why it's not available for someone to change easily lmao)

    It would make it look worst, not better. 5030 mi = 8095 km

    My guess is that it can't be changed. Speedometers are set up for mi/h or km/h, & the odometers are probably designed to do one or the other, too. I realize the opposite rating is usually shown on the speedometer, which helps traveling across borders.

    The option to change it may be available, but I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't.
