On mine (without Navi) I just press the Trip/Navi button 2-3 timnes and it comes up..

Take it that's not the case with the Sat-nav ones?

nope it is. even if you turn the radio off, press the navi button and it will display the numbers. the accuracy of it is somewhat debated though.

well mine usually shows the cars current total millage, then press it once and its trip a in miles and press it again it says trip b in miles and the it comes up with 3 levels of ------------

would it show me on the sat nav? or is there anyway of setting the options for the display in the dash?

it only works if you rradio says something like w58818 or something like that on the front. Your TNS700 isn't going to have it.

Yea about that accuracy, when I bought mine last year it read 34.2mpg (average) - as you'd expect after the first few months of owning a t sport it went down to 28mpg.

Now I'm not sure if there is something wrong here, for about 2 months now I've watched it climb and climb until yesterday it hit 60.1mpg.

That would be great, if it was actually doing 60.1mpg :) I think I need to reset my ECU :/

i reset it everytime i fill with petrol and find it very accurate - if you dont reset it it is working off the average from the last time it was reset. Which reading was reaching 60mpg? the constant reading will go to that and drop as low as 2mpg.

The average, not the constant - that bobs all over the show.

Are you saying there is a reset button without disconnecting the Battery? Because that would be handy, saves having the engine run like a dog while it adjusts after an ECU reset.

press the navi button until you get the display you want to reset then hold the button in until it beeps and all is reset. all in the manual you know ;)
