Default HUD doesnt work right!!??

My H.U.D windsheild odometer doesnt show the right speed. I can be going 55 and it says 95 or something. I never noticed that until i got on the highway and didnt wanna spend too much time looking back down at my speed. Any comments? suggestions??

does it say MPH or KPH... there should be a little button on the HUD switch to switch the display back and forth

i dont know, i'll take a look at it in the morning. I just bought the car, just got it home about an hour ago... no tags or anything. I've heard the battery cables need tightening.. Could that have caused it to reset in the wrong function?

If that'* true, the display should clearly show "KM/H" as opposed to "MPH".

You have to have that button. Every HUD Bonnie i've been in has it. That'* odd.
