How can I change the maps application (default application) back to miles. For some reason it is displaying in kilometers...

    I don't see a way to make the change in Maps so maybe your International settings are wrong in?

    Go into Settings-->General -->International

    on that page mine says...

    Language: English
    Keyboards: 1
    Region Format: United States

    I have the same problem, and the international settings were the first thing that I checked. It still seems to be stuck on kilometers, and I would prefer miles.

    Does anyone have an answer about this?

    I just noticed last night that after updating my iPhone 3G to the latest software (2.1) mine was mapping directions out in km. I thought that maybe at the time I was picking up a Canadian tower since I was close, but that wasn't the case. I tried it out again this morning and noticed the same thing. This is what I did to fix mine:

    Changed the International settings from United States to United Kingdom, clicked back to the main screen, then went back in and changed it back to United States. I powered the phone off, then back on, walla... worked like a charm. Hopefully it works for you. I find that sometimes making changes like that will "force" a refresh on certain settings.
