    KPH vs MPH and C vs F in weather app

    I just added a second user to the tablet. The first user sees the weather in MPH and degrees F, but the second sees KPH and degrees C. Have gone into the app settings and changed degree units to F, but it still displays as C, though the settings do show it as F. Cannot find anywhere to set the distance units.

    Have also looked through all ASUS settings looking for an "International settings" area where I can set default units for temperature and distance, but cannot locate anything.

    Note that the weather app shows the correct location here in PA, USA.

    Any idea where to set these?

    That may be a user setting. Try opening it as user b and check the settings.

    Thanks for getting back.

    Under the original user, the display shows MPH and F degrees, but under the new user, it shows KPH and C degrees. I figure it is a user setting, but where do I set it?

    In any case, there's no such thing as 'KPH' and it annoys me greatly that some weather apps continue to use that term. It's km/h. 'KPH' would be 'kilo per hour' and that's meaningless. The official unit is 'km/h', and that's what's used by people in every metric country.

    And of course wind speed isn't even measured in kilometres per hour in metric land, it's almost always measured in metres per second, or m/s. The only time km/h is used for wind speed is when you're talking about the wind speed inside tornadoes and the like. Wind speed in weather forecasts are in m/s and the Android apps should respect that (and respect their metric users too). So they should give the user the choice between, say, MPH, km/h, m/s, knots, beaufort, whatever, just don't use (or worse, enforce) non-existing units like 'KPH'.

    Log into user 'b'
    when you see the temperature in C, then long-press on that area, you'll get the setting panel where you can set the temperature.
