Inches of Mercury?!?!

Recommended Posts

Can anybody tell me if there is a mod to change the altimeter to read hectopascals as apposed to inches of mercury.

I find it bizarre that carenado have done this considering the quantities read in kilos!?!?

Cheers

Active Sky displays both, so I just use the value given there.

Perhaps it should be based on the world region from which you purchase an aircraft.  Here in the USA inches of mercury is still the standard. And not just for aviation.

Hi fppilot,

The USA uses imperial too etc pounds instead of kilos, how does it make sense to interchange like carenado have done?!?

If you move your mouse pointer over the altimeter knob (Tooltip), it shows you both.

Alexander,

I have tooltips switched off, I dont really want to switch it on either, would much prefer a new gauge.

MIlviz is doing the same.  Tooltip shows millibars, gauge window shows inches.  Nice touch.
