    I read through the manual but can't figure out how to change to mph on the speedometer. I saw the full size Prius has a button but I see no button on my Prius-c.

    I think it is rediculous that the dealerships are not changing the cars to MPH from kph during the pdi process. The car I drove was kph as well and I didn't notice until the car was moving.

    Thanks. Was having the same issue. Could not find anything in the book. Who would have thought to look under odometer to convert the speedometer?

    We were having this same problem last night at the dealership. Even the salesmen didn't know how to fix it. They finally got someone that could figure it out.

    It must be in 'odometer' mode. If in the 'disp' sub-menus, this will not work. I was frustrated otherwise. I called the dealership to no avail. I thought I was speeding for my first trip!

    I am so happy to have found this answer. The odometer display stayed lit even after the car was turned off, but eventually went blank. Hopefully, this problem is solved!x

    You can also press and hold the 'trip' button on the steering wheel to toggle between km/h and mph.

    Might be going on a road trip across the border tomorrow - will have to try this! I have a Master's in Chemistry but I still was never that good with arithmetic - so I need my speedometer to read the same units as the speed limit. :)

    Hold the trip button down while you are on the odometer and it will change speedo from km to miles.

    The car must be stopped for this to work... drove me crazy until I figured that out.

    Why don't you all just move to Canada and save yourself all of this aggravation.

    I've changed the speedo from KPH to MPH while driving plenty of times.
