Hi all!


For those who have devices which transmit the speed value in Knots, it would be nice to have the option to convert in Km/h. Currently, I can see my speed on the site in Km/h but it's not real, as the vaule is expressed in Knots.


I.E: While my records says that I achieved a maximum speed of 40km/h, the real speed was 74,08 km/h (as long as 40knots is 74,08 kmph).

Systems of measurement in modern use include the metric system, the imperial system, and United States customary units.

Also, other standardized measuring systems other than metric are still in universal international use, such as nautical miles and knots in international aviation and shipping.


From our side we have options for U.S. and Metric systems.


Knots are more peculiar for ships.

Beside speed parameter is one of the minimal recommended GPS parameters the so called "RMC".

And it is transferred by the device itself.

I think trackers should have settings which can be used to switch between systems.
