miles kilometers

I went to Canada, and reported my distance traveled in kilometers, then returned to the U.S. and now, my checklists display in KM, rather than miles even when I report the distance in Statute miles.

How do I fix this? Thanks,
- Jon.

Did you select Miles when you submitted the checklist.

Yes, since returning to the States, I have entered the distance in 'miles' - but the eBird program - either on my 'smart' phone when I'm using the mobile app, or when I've entered data from my laptop at home - will only display the distance on the checklist in kilometers.

This even occurs when I've accepted a shared checklist where the distance is entered as miles. I presume that there's a 'settings' function that I have yet to find that will allow me to view my own checklists in 'miles'.

Try this;
Go to Manage My Checklists, pick a checklist and click on View or edit, then click on Edit Date and Effort, change distance from x kilometers to y miles and click on Save Changes.

Many thanks. I tried that a number of times/ways. I enter the distance or correct the distance in a checklist from kilos to miles, but after the 'save', the checklist shows distance in kilometers. For that matter, it shows kilometers on everyone else's checklists...

Am I missing something really simple here?

For that matter, it doesn't make a difference whether I enter a checklist from my laptop computer, or whether I'm entering it via the mobile app on my Android phone.

I have the same problem. I went to Canada and entered in km and now I can't switch back. I'm entering in miles from the eBird App and my checklists display in km.
