My site shows trails and currently shows distance in km and elevation in m. US users don't like this and want to see things in miles and feet respectively.
Does anybody have any evidence for the best way to do this?
Options I can think of:
- Show a link in the top right corner that switches from Metric to US Customary. Default to US Customary for showing trails in the US and Metric everywhere else. (Possibly show Imperial for UK trails.)
- Show everything as x km (y mi) but switch to y mi (x km) for US trails. (Possibly allowing a switch at the top).
Is US Customary a good term? This is what Wikipedia uses. Maybe km/m and mi/ft?
