The trip odometers show you how far you have traveled since your last trip odometer reset. These odometers can be used to measure the driving distance between two locations, or to track how long a trip is. To access the trip odometers, follow these steps: 1. Press the Up/Down buttons on the steering wheel until Trip 1 or 2 is displayed on the instrument panel, then press the OK button. 2. Press the Up/Down buttons until Trip A or Trip B is displayed, then press the OK button. 3. Press and hold the OK button to reset the highlighted trip odometer. 4. Press the Left button on the steering wheel to return to the main menu.
