using tuner to change spedo

so my question might sound odd. but my trucks spedo is in mph with kmh below. i live in canada so it would be nice to have kmh in the larger numbers. so rather then change the spedometer ( id thats evern possible) can a tunner be used to get the spedometer to show my speed in km/h using the larger mph numbers?

As far as I know there are no super dutys with a digital speedo......I think you are stuck with changing the cluster.

This might be a long shot but you could get a speedo recalibrator and with some math figure out the difference in mph-kph and just have the recalibrator set for way undersized tires which would make the speedo raise quicker like it would if it was in KPH. Just a thought though. Could be something to ponder on and give a shot. It sounds like it could possibly work though.
