I figured out the issue. I now literally live on the border of Canada. so even though the map shows me in the US, apparently the GPS and the program feels otherwise. The program switches from KM to MPH once I move inland just a bit.

To make this change in Google Maps you should:

 

  • Open Google Maps and click on the "Get Directions" link.

  • Enter the start and end addresses, landmarks or cities for your trip, and then click on  the "Get Directions" button. The map will be generated, with directions listed with distances in the default measurement for that country.

  • Click on the "Show Options" link. It is just below the text field where you entered your destination.

  • Click on the "km" radiobutton to change miles to kilometers, or on the "miles" radio button to change from kilometers to miles.

Here is a link to that information:

Im Still a little fuzzy on this one two I did what it said in the Instructions and I still havent been able to find how to change the MPH/KM Setting.:  A little More explaining needs to be done.  :smileysad:      (Update)  Were it Says click on the options When I Done that it Gives 1: the option: Avoid Highways 2: the option: Avoid Tolls And thats All I Could Find No Other Options So What are we doing Wrong.   :smileysad:

I think those instructions are for a Blackberry.  They certainly aren't for a Fascinate......at least I can't get mine to do what was suggested.  Mine is in Miles and I see no way to change to Km.  But then on the other hand I am a relative newbie.  Have a great day.

Unfortunately the new update to Google maps does not allow you to change from KM to MPH. Until this option is available, you may have to uninstall the map updates in order to get the MPH measurement back.
