Geomate Jr Settings

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I am new to the forum so my apologies if this topic has been covered elsewhere. If it has, please point me in the right direction.

 

We purchased a Geomate JR for my son for Christmas. Currently, the distance settings are set to metric and I can't figure out how to change it to feet/miles. Does anyone know how to change it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As a 4th grade teacher and a parent of a geocacher, I recommend keeping it on the metric units setting and familiarizing them with it. Your child will eventually have to learn and apply the metric system in school, so why not let them learn through something fun for them. To familiarize them with it compare a meter stick with a foot ruler. My six year old son already knows the difference between a foot and meter from geocaching. He will be well prepared when his teacher presents him with this standard and skill in school.

 

I know I didn't answer your question, sorry.
