Cool X80 MPH always displays at half the actual value

I recently purchased a X80 and it worked flawlessly for first 250 miles (of 500), of a road trip to trade in my 2012 GrandSport Corvette.
On the return trip, now in a 2017 Z06, we noticed that the MPH indicator on both the app and the detector itself displays/reads half the value of the actual MPH the vehicle is traveling.
I first thought it was my phone being weird (iPhone 6) and did a reboot. No changes to the mph being half value. I then decide to remove and reinstall the app - still no change in behavior. I check various settings within the app thinking there may possibly be something I screwed up. Nothing there, so I returned the X80 feeling it must be faulty.
Today I was able to get a replacement X80 ... and just like the one it replaced ... the MPH is displaying half the value.
So, now Im wondering if its just something about/with my car? Anyone else with this issue?

It sounds like it is displaying metric units (KPH). You can change this in the Radar Detector settings in Escort Live.
