    Great features and great development. Few suggestions - allow selection of common APRS symbols rather than text entry, it's annoying to look it up; and bring back imperial units, I'm all for going to metric, but i'll always use miles as long as I'm in the US.

    Am I missing something or is distance only in km now. I could have sworn that you could choose between miles and km in previous versions. Other than that its great. I've been using for some time and am a long time APRS user. Can't wait for the tablet version.
