# Thread: Howto specify MPH for GPSspeed.swf?

1. ## Howto specify MPH for GPSspeed.swf?

I noticed that the "GPS stats" screen seems to show the speed in KPH instead of MPH, but the speed in iG4 is correct in MPH. After digging around in GPS_Status.skin and I still cannot figure out how to set the MPH for GPSspeed.swf.

Is this even possible?

2. what skin r u using?
well it really deppends on how the "GPSspeed.swf." you are reffering to is designed..
it is either designed to read km or miles. you can not change that unless you have the source

i think, no one will fix it in his source.
the only different is the scale.
i dont think your car will drive 300 mi/h, in km/h we do it.

some posts behind this, its written what to do if you want to see miles or km/h... why you guys didn,t use the search function.

by the way, its set in rr.ini GPS
ISUNITS = true ....... =km/h and meter
ISUNITS = false ..... = miles and feet

where is that search function?
well to explain more of how "most" swf speedos work
they have each frame as 1 speed unit, then the movie will go to the frame that equals the speed of which rr sends to the swf.. so if RR sends "40" the speedo will show "40" it does not matter if it is km/hr or mi/hr.
the problem is it sure looks funny to have a mi/h speedo showin 220mi/hr!!! and stating "km/hr" on top..
so you need the source to have a nice looking speedo showing mi/hr as i told you in my previous post

5. Okay after playing around with the "ISUNITS" setting I found out it's reversed on my carpc.

ISUNITS=true will set unit to MPH, the DFX2.0 skin displays MPH everywhere, and GPSspeed is actually showing the right speed now.

ISUNITS=false will set unit to KMH, reversed to whatever above.

The only reason I can come up with is because my USB GPS receiver is bought oversea where they are using KMH, is that even possible?

i think no GPS factory would fix if its KM or in Miles.

I think its to fix in the ini of IGuidance.

the reason for it is the same as its in the software. every small change must change in all languages. who will pay for it ?

7. Just a note, there is now a MPH and KPH button on the GPS Stats screen to switch to whatever you want "on the fly" so to speak Just like the button on the dash with a digital readout to switch back and forth
