I did a search in the Owner's manual and it doesn't seem to be possible. The manual discusses adjusting the temperature range but nothing about switching to Fahrenheit.

Any updates on this topic, folks?
I have the problem which is exactly the opposite one - I am originally from Europe, but now live in the US, bought 2015 Civic and can't figure out how to switch to Celsius scale. I can't believe it is not possible - I think even Dollar store Chinese thermometers can do this. Switching from mph into km/h is easy though, but not needed at all unless I drive to Canada...

Appreciate your help! Thanks!

Welcome!

It's too bad that you can't change the scale, but if that's the case you might as well try making the best of it. Radio and TV are going to report temperatures in degF, and that's what people are going to use in conversation. You can use the car to help you calibrate your feel for the Fahrenheit scale: see the number, and note how hot or cold it feels every day.

And while you're acclimating to the US customary units, know that this is a good time of year to go out and buy yourself a peck of apples.

Wow, thanks, is that really true?!
It's my first Honda ever, even my old Hyundai had a toggle switch in its menu.
I'm curious of what the reasons were for Honda engineers to not include this feature given how many displays they put in the car (and I have to admit I like how they look)...

It's probably akin to the Steve Jobs philosophy of making the correct choices up front and not cluttering the design with unneeded controls. There's an undeniable elegance in that sort of strategy, and it works well for most. But there's always someone for whom it does not work.

I loved our Pacifica. It had a 0-160 speedometer and a E/M button. Change it to Metric and the MPH light went out on the dash and the KM/H marker illuminated. The spedo then moved to the correct Metric speed on the scale and everything including the NAV changed to metric. Sometimes choices are needed.

But, I see what you are saying.

Here is how: in Celcius, there are 100 degrees between boiling and freezing. In Fahrenheit there are 180 degrees between boiling and freezing. So, the ratio of C to F is 100:180 or, 5:9. To do that, simply, you double the C, subtract 10%, and adjust for freezing.

So, 12 degrees C = 12X 2 = 24, subtract 2.4 and get 21.6, add 32, and it is 53 or 4 degrees out.


It works.

This isn't helpful at all.

I'm interested in switching mine from Fahrenheit to Celsius. Is the consensus that there is no way to change it? My user manual was not helpful.

Just went out and checked my Touring, as I thought there was a way, but no, only a setting for miles or km. However, it might be possible for a dealer to do it with their electronic service tool (for a small fee, of course). Wouldn't hurt to stop by and ask.

That's the trouble with math. You go along, whistling a happy tune, and, out of nowhere, math comes up and whacks you.
