Hello 
I have what I hope should be a relatively straight forward enhancement. 
I like many people fly different types of aircraft some report speed in MPH, others in KNOTS, even some maybe in KPH
While I realize you can change the units in the setup menu to whatever you need 

(1) The GS display at the top of the screen does NOT report the unit you have selected
(the only way to know is to go back into the setup menu to check ?) 

(2) What also would be useful as part of the above is to be able to toggle the units by tapping the GS display
(like you do for DST NXT/END and ALT/HT)

Many thanks Neil

This one gets my vote, plus the value in DST NXT/END should be shown in mi, nm or km appropriately.

Actually good point - distance ok in nautical miles, speed is the key one for me

Are you all agreeing with part 1, part 2 or both, of the original suggestion?

I prototyped the display of units in those two instruments and don't particularly like it. Opinions welcome, but I think it's too busy and am wary about adding it when most people seem to have got along alright without it up until now.

I like it as it is. It seems to make even more sense now that I see it.
This gets my thumbs up 👍.

Since we touched the topic of ambiguity there is another suggestion:
The white line extending from the airplane has 3 tic-marks. 
Sometimes I can't recall if I defined it as time or distance line.
 
So I propose the following :
Add the symbol d=distance or t=time at the white line with a circle around it,
depending on the configuration in setup.
When Tapping the circle the tic-mark revert to either time or distance markings with proper scaling and t/d-letter.
In flight, sometimes I prefer to quickly change between time and distance and going in the setup menu is cumbersome.
How do the others feel about this?
