    KPH to MPH in RR GPS

    Currently RR displays speed in KPH, I notice no setting in RRconfig to cahnge this to MPH. Where would this be done? Does RR set Mapoint to display in KPH?

    Never mind I think you need to set International to ON in RRConfig. Which is strange because only the USA really uses MPH.

    We should really change RR so it just respects the OS setting. That's what it's there for after all.

    International Standard Units=ON should give you Km/h and meters etc.. OFF should give you MPH, feet etc..

    Some people just don't want to use the OS settings, so making it detect it (although nice) would still require an option to set it manually, so I just didn't bother doing it.

    The OS also has a manual setting though.

    Sorry to sound dumb but there is no option to set "International Standard Units=ON" or off in the RR.ini file, its simply not there.
    Im guessing i add the value for it to work:

    International Standard Units=ON (would give KPH)
    International Standard Units=OFF (would give MPH)

    The OS also has a manual setting though.
    Operating system? windows OS? hmm that went right over my head...

    I don't mean to sound funny guys but it would be a little better if you guys could explain things just a little easier for the noobs among us on here.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Blue ZX3, i found it and it was at the bottom of the config menu (GPS) in a checkbox like you said and not in the RR.ini file.

    Thanks for clearing that one up matey, appreciate it!

    Is there a way to hide the "km/h" (or Mi/h) text?

    I just want RR to display the GPS speed, and I'll add my own text for km/h...

    Yes, just make the label just big (wide) enough that it will only display the number.
