Trip odometer question
 
Hi folks,
I wonder if everyone else's trip odometers roll over to "0" after 2000km's like mine does?
My last car would go to much higher distance and i found it convenient to use trip #2 for tracking oil changes.

Yes my goes back to zero after 2,000 miles. I wish it didnt.

Ours goes to 2000 miles in the states. I was only using trip 2 for overall MPG until a BCM update erased all of that.

A 2000 limit makes no sense at all. Either they chose to limit to 2000 or they use 11-bit counters -- neither makes any sense...

It's likely related to how they chose to display the digits (i.e. 1999.9 is the max with the particular font and the allocated space).
