[Loadstone] Nautical units

Thanks for understanding,
I was telling only about nautical units.
As for now, if a distance is smaller than one nautical mile, it is expressed in yards, while it should be expressed in cables. The problem had already been discussed, but I found a solution.
In many (esp. European) countries, decimal fractions are written with coma "," eg. 0,25, 1,234 - that's why I forgot to use "." as a decimal symbol.
For you, I should have written:
1 cable

= 0.1 nautical mile

= 608 feet

= 185.166 metres

By the way: It would be nice if in the display settings of Loadstone you could choose a decimal separator (between "." and ","), if it comes to any point distances.
