Can you please correct the language used to describe units.

I am in the UK - England to be precise.

Here we use the metric system, but some old people still use Imperial units.

Your system has 3 units presets, English, Metric and Imperial.

The English preset is mis-named, it is not English at all, it is American.

Hi,
  Here in the US we still refer primarily to "English" vs "Metric" units, with "English" understood to be the US measures of inches, gallons, pounds, etc...  It may be technically incorrect, but that's what about 320 million of us here in the colonies use in common speech.

  What I did just do is change the title to "Set to English (US) units" to help clarify it.
