Default reset odometer on smiths electronic speedo

I took my car for a spin a couple times around the block (less than one mile) I did not calibrate the speedo before doing this, I did not think about it. The speedo went to 180 MPH and now it reads almost 3k miles on it. Is there a way to reset the odometer? with it sending it to the UK? Im sure some one else has done this , or am I the only one? It is am electronic version.

Just use a pulse generator to spin it all the way around to zero again. It'll only take a couple of weeks.

Mike, are you saying you saw 180mph going around the block a couple of times....and the odometer now reads 3000 miles?
You'll probably need new tyres now....

Cheers!
Glen

You may also want to talk to the gentleman at Nisonger Instruments in New York...He has sold Smiths and Lucas instruments for many years.
