If you have the standard size tyres you’ll probably find your speedo is wrong anyway. If it says 110 you are probably actually doing 101 or so. All new cars in Australia have been like this for near to 15 years now.

I do not have any and have only looked at their website, so I cannot make any recommendations.
May be worth checking out.

You can still look at the dial speedo yes, but it's not as accurate and I much prefer to know the digital value. Does anyone know how to prevent the radar cruise control icon from overriding the digital speed display when an alarm comes on? I'm happy to never see the radar cruise icon (even when it has just detected the car in front) because it doesn't tell you anything anyway.
3) When the radar cruise control is on and it comes up on a car that is slowing down faster than the engine braking can slow my car, the hilux automatically applies the brakes....works very well. With my last car it used to apply the brakes for normal cruise control if it overshot it by about 3 km/hr (regardless of whether a car was in front or not), and that was brilliant because you could be assured at all times that you would never get a speeding fine. The Hilux, when cresting a hill and there is no car in front can overshoot the speed by well over 7-10 km/hr and I "think" it does apply some brake when it really gets out of control (>10km/hr over setpoint). Does anyone know if the setpoint for radar cruise control can be set to apply the brakes when it overshoots by xx km/hr (preferably 3km/hr overshoot)? Note: the last car didn't wear out the brakes due to this feature, and remember that I am now having to apply the brakes anyway to control the car (but kicking out the cruise function) so the times the brakes come on will be the same. I can't see any functions in the user manual or scrolling through the MFD options...there is something in there that you can set it to "warn" you at 1, 3 or 5 kms over, but all that does is start the beeping when it's gone over...it doesn't start applying the brakes etc.
