If you install the software properly on a modern PC (windows 10 in my case), you can very easily change the display from kmh to mph ...

I installed it properly. The included 'mini' usb lead may have been bad, but I returned it anyway. It would never read past 199kmh, and everything I have flies faster than that. I see yours only went to 189kmh so you didn't find its limit

Turns out SkyRC got their heads out of their arses and upgraded the unit, now the GSM-015. uses the extremely popular micro usb input, and is switchable to mph with a long press of the mode button without needing a PC:

And it works. Fast flight test with my FW Avanti 8s(that's 286kmh ):
