Unhappy Converting Fahrenheit to Celsius from OBC

Does anyone knows how to switch the outside temperature to Celsius from my board computer? I live in Europe so it's pretty useless to me in Fahrenheit.

To convert to Celsius, subtract 32 then multiply by 5/9ths. If that gets to be a pain, then check the owners manual. If you are asking about the mini-computer, it has a button labeled US/MET to switch between kilometers-Celsius and miles-Fahrenheit. Press it.
Why would anybody want to use Celsius to measure the temperature of weather anyway? Fahreheit makes much more sense: 100 is hot, 0 is cold. Celsius is no less arbitrary, but when discussing the weather, who cares what the boiling point of water is at sea level?

Thank you for trying to help me... i'm european and we use Celsius... it's pretty annoying to calculate every time i want to know the outside temp. Imagine that ur car shows the outside temp in Celsius
I dont have the owner manual and neither the US/MET button mentioned above (I'm guessing that comes with the EVIC system). I just have a single button where u can switch between total of kilometers or miles the car has - outside temp (Fahrenheit of course) - miles remaining to the gas station and any other stuff. Have a great day!

Even though I'm not sure that this will help solve your problem I'm still posting a picture of the US/MET button that dcotter was talking about.

Edit: By the way, anytime I need to convert something from....well anything to anything I use http://www.onlineconversion.com/
