Setting the Unit of Measure for Altimeter

Feb 19, 2013 at 10:38 PM
Does the altimeter support anything other than Meters? I looked through the code and see that the Distance structure supports conversion ToFeet, ToMeters, etc and has a readonly property IsMetric, but I cannot figure out how to establish the control as meters or feet. I am using the nmea interpreter to automatically drive the control and it shows in meters. On the altitude received event from the GPS i can use ToFeet() to see the altitude in Feet, but I want the control to show 700 F instead of 200 M. It this controlled by setting the Unit on the Distance struct?
