Assuming the unit is based on location, how do you get OS to offer metric or imperial? We in the UK use a mix, user options would be preferable - we tend to use feet for height, I forget that a m is more than 3x a foot and consequently fly higher than necessary.
On IOS in Canada I have things in metric in both freeflight 6 and Pro.
I went into settings->general->language®ion and switched region to United States.
I thought about just killing the apps, but went all out and rebooted the phone.
When it came back on, I checked and both versions of freeflight showed imperial measurements. Good ole foots per second. Who measures with feet per second, really?
They could program an option to pick whatever weird measurement you want I suppose, but then probably just easier to move somewhere where you don’t have to be closeted about you choice of weights and measures.
Your correct though. Just here in the US we get so used to using feet and when we're forced to use meters it's like Wow factor.. but, being in the military we've been used to using the metric system anyway.
