I have a question regarding digital odometers.

If you have a cluster LCD that reads 980,000 kms, and you fit it to your car, drive it for 20,000 kms, until it hits 1,000,000 kms does it go back to 000,000 kms?

dont the hq odometers roll over at 100,000 meaning it would have done 200,000 clicks?

As for the digital ones, i was trying to find that out the other day (with no luck)

No, if the LCD screen can fit a 1, why not a 2 or a 3 or a 4 etc etc.

A one is easy to add to a screen, instead of another full digit.

e.g a one can be done:

While any other digits will need the full 8 segments (ignore the .).

Basically if it goes back to 6 0's, you could sell it as a brand new dash on ebay?
