    I have updated all the firmware, including batteries to the latest recent releases for my Phantom Vision (non-plus). My Android app is at version 1.0.54

    When I look at the RTH Altitude setting in the app, it is reported in meters despite the fact I have the Parameter Units set to Imperial. All other distance related items display correctly.

    A friend has also updated his Phantom and iPhone to the latest and his RTH Altitude setting displays in feet.

    I saw mention of this in the Unofficial Android thread but didn't think it applied.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Thanks in advance...

    Geert,

    Thanks for the quick response. As I mentioned in my original post, the Parameter Unit is set to Imperial. I even tried changing it to Metric and back again, but it didn't fix the issue. Also my friend who has an iOS phone and the RTH Altitude does display in feet.

    Rich,
    Guess we'll have to wait for an update!

    There was a similar metres/feet bug in the android app groundstation section.
