I have a 2007 build 4/4 with white instrument dials.
However, the odometer does not have a trip meter, and this makes it difficult when we do charity car runs where directions and distances are given in tenths of a mile.
Does anyone know if it is possible to retro fit one?

Are you sure you don't have a trip. My new to me 07 4/4 trip needs a lot of pressing on the button to get any response. It does work but it makes you work first.

If you have a smart phone are you allowed to use this ? There are plenty of applications you can download that can provide this using GPS.

What make is the speedo?

Smiths or VDO?

Being secondhand who knows what the previous owner did? If it is a Smiths then there should be a reset button on a flying lead that protrudes through the lower plastic cover.

Bertie 1,
Try looking under the front edge of the dashboard, there should be a small black button. This will activate the trip.
It took me a year to find out about mine.

Thanks for all the ideas.
No hidden buttons, and no flying leads, so best option might be the app for smartphone.

Hi,
I found my trip button today, it's tiny and it was under the rev counter :-)
I was scared to press it at first as I wasn't sure what it would do, (maybe a hidden ignition cut off or something similar) but it was my trip meter. I'm so pleased.
Thanks guys, these threads are so useful :-)

Late to this thread, but may be of use

We use a free app called Rally Tripmeter (it's symbol is a chequered flag) designed by Siim Plangi

It's accurate and very easy to use & vital when you do tulip maps in a 50 yr old Mini

And for a 2005 Roadster as you can't see the odometer & to work the trip you need very thin fingers that bend oddly. A great app
