Hey guys... First post here, if I'm posting in the wrong place, my apologies...

I'm using my BBZ10 with the gasbuddy app... it works great as I've come to expect on previous blackberries I've had... small issue...

I'm Canadian, I don't know what the heck a mile is.. lol... How do I change the metering to metric standards? The prices are /L but the distances are all in mi..

Any ideas?

Hi OilTech,

To change the default distance setting in the BB10 app: Swipe down from the top frame -> Select Settings -> Choose Search Preferences -> Scroll down to Distance Unit -> Select Kilometers

I hope this helps.

Seems like you might have forgotten a setup step on the BB -- the mi/km setting

The General Gas Talk discussion category is for discussion about gas stations, fuel, oil, etc. You should ask your question in the Talk Back To Us discussion category.

While I use an iPhone, using the Gas Buddy app for the BlackBerry should be similar. You should be able to, from the home screen, click the "settings" button, and then change the default "distance unit" from "miles" to "kilometers".

That said, and it's just a suggestion, Gas Buddy information is only as good as members posting prices. As a long time member, you may want to consider posting more frequently to help your fellow Alberta Gas Buddy members be more knowledgeable shoppers. But that's just a suggestion.
