Hello everyone, I'm new here and a new Evoque owner in Northern California. Happy with the car in general but one of my complaints is the lack of a digital speedometer. Turns out it has one, but only displays kilometers as far as I can tell.

I turned it on by doing the following:

1. Hit the O.K button on the steering wheel
2. Enter "trip computer"
3. Select "units"
4. Select kilometers

The display will appear.

Has anyone been able to get a MPH display on a U.S. model? Since the display is there, it would seem a software update should solve the problem. On the upside, I now know how to translate km to mph.

Thanks for the info. That was one of my complaints also as there was no digital speed display. There's got to be a solution as the UK cars does have MPH. If you do find a solution please let us know.

This was one of my two complaints on the vehicle we test drove. The analog gauge was just blocked by the steering wheel when I move it to my preferred driving position. When I go in to order our evoque I'll ask the dealer to inquire to land rover about this display.

Coming from a few prior vehicles with a digital MPH display, I find the lack of one on the USA model one of the vehicles biggest flaws. Anything that takes your eyes and attention away from the road for longer than necessary goes from being an annoyance to a safety issue. Hopefully enough people will speak up and they will issue the necessary software update.

Great information,
I did notice that it will work when you change to metrics, however that is not what we are using in the U.S. even though I am more familiar with metrics!

I will also inquire about that with the Dealership and request them to send a note to Land Rover in order to check if this is just a matter of software update.

Regards to all and a great week ahead.

Now that the 2014 evoque has the digital speedmeter in MPH does any one know if the dealership can do a software update on my 2013 evoque to be able to display the speedometer in MPH and not KMH?

I played with this function by switching to Kilometers and under those settings there is a digital speedometer. Very strange that it would not be included in the MPH view. I too hope that this can be addressed with a software update. It would be nice to have. Our Audi Q5 has a digital speedo.
