Switching Between KM and MPH on Your Electric Scooter: A Simple Guide

In today's globally connected world, it's not uncommon to come across people using various units of measurement. One such instance is when you get on your electric scooter and realize the speed is displayed in kilometers per hour (km/h) instead of miles per hour (mph). Although both units are measuring speed, the values can differ significantly, making it essential to know how to change the scooter's display to your preferred unit.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to change km to mph on electric scooters.

Step 1: Consult your scooter's user manual

Each electric scooter model is different, and to learn the best way to switch between km/h and mph, it's crucial to consult the user manual first. Most manufacturers provide a comprehensive guide in the manual, detailing how to navigate the scooter's settings and change the unit of measurement.

Step 2: Locate the speed display settings

After referring to the user manual, locate the button or combination of buttons that will allow you to enter the speed settings. Some scooters have a dedicated button for this, while others may have an LCD screen with buttons to scroll through the menu.

Step 3: Switch between km/h and mph

Once you've found the speed settings, scroll through them to locate the unit of measure option. In most cases, the options will include 'km' or 'kph' for kilometers per hour and 'mi' or 'mph' for miles per hour. Simply select the unit you prefer and press the confirm button to save the changes.

Step 4: Test to ensure the changes have been made correctly

Before heading out for a ride, turn on your scooter to ensure the speed is now displayed in the unit you chose. Take a test ride to ensure the speedometer is displaying accurate readings in the correct unit of measurement.

If you continue to experience issues or cannot locate the speed settings, it's best to contact the manufacturer or retailer for further assistance.

Remember, knowing the correct unit of measurement for your electric scooter can make your rides safer and more enjoyable, so ensure your scooter is set up to display the information in the most useful way for you.
