I think I may also change my speedo to show true speed if I can figure that out...
If there are short periods of concern - like hot Aussie days! - then you can just pull up hidden menu #7 and monitor the actual KTMP value. Would be interesting to see how high it gets in those conditions.

're. The Speedo - that's a bit tricky as the actual error varies with tyre wear....
