Unless things have recently changed you can't. There's a thread on it over on Adventure Rider. https://advrider.com/f/threads/kph-t...n-tft.1328914/

Yes very easily, but I don't know if your firmware is up to date so it might not.

Go to the setting tab and change the units for the display, you can change tire pressure from psi to bar, speedo from MPH to KPH, temperature from F to C, etc

Yep. It works great for our Canadian friends but not for the US models. Unless BMW put into the newest code change. It would be worth a shot to ask for the newest code before you set off on your trip.

I just had my software update on my 2019 R1250 GSA and there is no option to change the speedo units. Only the temperature, presssure and fuel consumption. But I noticed yours was in the "Pro" mode. Does that offer another option?
