    Ecowitt Wind Speed Units

    Any chance of being able to select what the wind speed units display as? Currently wind speed is coming in as m/s, but I'd prefer km/h. I have the WS View app setup as km/h, and it shows that way in their app, but I'm guessing the data the GW1000 outputs to your plugin doesn't respect the settings in the app, and just outputs a default value of m/s?

    If that is the case, any chance of being able to add a drop down to select what units should be used with Ecowitt?

    Sure, I'm thinking if it's a user preference for the wind speed units - the setting should be probably be in the plugin Settings, not per location?

      Yes, personally I would be fine with it as a global setting.

        And I think it only makes sense for metric units (m/s or km/hr), in US it's only mph?

          The other option is knots, which is generally only used by pilots. Even on Canada our aviation forecasts still use knots for wind speed.

          It is the one case where I could see someone wanting a different unit from the other stations, if it says at a landing strip for instance.

              Thanks, just downloaded and tested it. It is changing but I think your math is off.

              km/h = m/s * 3.6

              I think your program is doing:

              km/h = m/s / 3.6

              At least that is what it looks like based off the numbers I am seeing.
