Changing the navigation distance units

The navigation distance units used during navigation (e.g. the distance to the next turn) can be customized to be metric (meters or kilometers) or imperial (miles). TomTom Digital Cockpit is using the Android platform vehicle property DISTANCE_DISPLAY_UNITS to select this. To change this, set the property to one of the following values (from

  • VehicleUnit#METER
  • VehicleUnit#KILOMETER
  • VehicleUnit#MILE

If this value is not set in the platform, TTDC will fall back to use the current locale of the Android Automotive operating system.
