    Is there a way to change the speedometer from miles per hour to kilometers per hour? I could only find the answer for older models of the Prius, and holding the trip button in odometer screen didn't seem to work for my 2018 Prime.

    Thanks - Dave

    It’s on the MID (multi-information display), using the right-hand steering-wheel controls. In the “settings” part, one of the right-most menus:

    It should be just like the other Gen 4s. Use the scroll button on the right side of your steering wheel to change the MID to the settings functions (icon like a gear) and the scroll down to the kp/h MPH function and toggle it. If your manual is like my 2017, it's in the "Settings" section.

    Edit to add: You beat me to it while I typed, @mr88cet! (y)

    a simple 'RTFM' would suffice.

    To run people off.

    I'm often tempted, but usually control myself.

    Edit to add: That said, with this car, the manual is your best friend. Spend some quality time with it and you'll like your car even more.

    Never got a change to reply, but thanks for posting the info...was helpful for driving around Quebec. MPH signs end shortly after border, and doing the conversion in my head got old quick, especially when trying to navigate at the same time.

    Thank You!
