Changing distance to destination from Kilometers to miles

Recommended Posts

We were on our first Adventure Lab cache the other night. My caching partner and I both have Google Pixel II phones. We opened the phones to the app and headed off to stage 1. She asked how come my phone is reading distance in kilometers. Mine was reading correct in Miles. I search high and low could not find any setting to change this. I checked all the setting I could find on her phone and nothing seemed out of place. The Geocache.com App, Google Maps both  read in Miles to destination.

This Adventure Cache is in NY state and miles is correct.   Km like Canadian money is worth approximately 60 % of American $ and miles.:D

I'm not Canadian. I'm just one of the majority who use kilometres. I know it's in the USA; I was only joking :laughing::).

Did you check the preferences in the GC account?

There is a setting where you can select between metric and imperial units.

The setting is correct on Geocache.com website. The geocache App read miles. All the other apps on the phone read correct except the Adventure lab.
