Inconsistent climb units

Hi,

Could you make the 'Total Climb' figure stick to a unit please?  It start's counting in meters then switches miles once I go over about 1400mtr (I have miles selected in my profile for distance).  Miles makes no sense for climb distance, it needs to stick to meters, yards, feet or whatever even when the number gets large.

If you could make it configurable in the profile separately to the distance unit that'd be even better.  For some reason I've got used to miles for distance and meters for climb.  I'm not sure what would work better as an imperial unit, feet or yards. 

Thanks

Good suggestion - I've defaulted it to metres for now. I think the standard for climbs is generally metres in the UK and mainland Europe, but feet in the US.
