Re: Not sure where to start NEWBIE HERE. HELP

The units are probably displaying in millimeters. Select Imperial from the pull-down menu on the Control Page.

Also, it sounds like you can use some help in general. I left a message on your telephone answering machine. Give me a call at 707-559-8539. I'm sure I can help you get going.
