Lyra OK
Does in not show both when you're adding a route? It's been a while since I added a route, but I'm reasonably confident it does measure as you go in both miles and kilometers.

Certainly when I look at my route list I can see both measurements.

Most of my routes are KM (don't do long enough ones for miles!) and you can certainly switch between the two.

On the right hand side, you've got 'Useful Stuff'. You can change from miles to KM and back again to heart's delight.

Although the map will show mile markers regardless, unless I'm missing something.

More of an issue for me when viewing routes I've done rather than creating routes (I don't actually create routes here because the Fetch route creator doesn't auto follow roads)

Just sent Captain Fetcho the following feedback:

Hi, would it be possible to make the markers used in maps in various places respect the mile/km setting (at the moment they always use miles)? Also, could we have different colour markers for the start and end of a route?

Got something to say?
