If installing a battery cutoff, do the miles still accumulate when towing the Smart?

“Dual clutch transmission” - in the smart 453, a manual 6 speed transmission where the gears and clutches are controlled by computer and motors. The previous gen smart had a 5 speed single clutch transmission. The double clutch design allows for more efficient, faster shifting up and down.

For anyone interested...I've confirmed that when using a battery disconnect switch, the odometer does not accumulate miles.
