Digital dash, I take it?

Should just be able to push or twist the button to switch from English to Metric...forget which.

Yea...gently twist it to the right (clockwise) for about 1 second. It will switch. Whenever I undo my battery, it always returns to metric.

AFAIK, a digital dash is a digital dash. It should not be "locked" to metric. They all should be able to be switched from English to Metric and back.
