    Dakota 20 Odometer

    My Dakota displays the distance traveled odometer in feet. How do I change it to display distance traveled in miles instead?

    You need one of these. 5280 ft. = one mile.

    Page 26 in this manual refers to units of measure.

    I can get to the settings for Units but I get the following options of which none of them give me Miles as an option:

    Nautical (nm,kt,ft)
    Nautical (nm,kt,m)
    Statute
    Metric
    Yards


    Very frustrating.

    So if you select "statute," it doesn't switch to miles? I know I'm probably telling you something you already know, but "statute" I think means miles as in "statute miles." That's as opposed to nautical miles. For example, 1 statute mile equals about 0.86 nautical mile. If selecting "statute" doesn't give you miles, makes me wonder just what it does give you? On my Garmin 800, when I select "statute" everything is in 5280-foot miles. Sorry I can't be any more help. I guess I'm gadget impaired.

    Travel farther. It will switch to displaying distance in miles once you have reached a worthy distance of say, 1000 feet.

    Wow, most creative way eva to say "shut up and ride"?

    I think he's correct. My Garmin shows feet travelled until I get to a certain point in the ride.
