How do you use it?

The best way is using a GPS (unless you're on a body of water that has current, then I would think that you'd have to take measurements both ways). Get to the speed that you want to calibrate it to according to the GPS, then just use the toggle switch that you're referring to to adjust the speedo needle up or down. Simple as that. Just remember, if you calibrate it to be accurate at 20 or 25, it will probably be accurate up to around 32-35 then will start to deviate beyond that. I've never seen a speedo on a boat that wasn't GPS based that was accurate through the entire range.
