Hmmm, just a guess, but what is your region format in settings/general/international? Something other than U.S.?

edit: yup, that seems to do it for me.

You right - that's really strange. I'm living in Denmark, and use km ;)

After reading in some forums, it then seems that you're not alone - lots of people living in the UK got the same problem with Maps. I'll guess Apple will fix that one soon - maybe in the upcoming 2.2.1 firmware!? ;)

What is "KPH"?....Copenhagen?
KPH = Kilometers Per Hour

Kilometers is a unit of measurement and i'm guessing you know what an hour is :p

In Australia, Hong Kong & India all use KPH - I thought UK would also use KPH because they were all colonized by the British. (I'll try not to involve too much history in my next post :) )
