The COMPUSHIFT controllers are capable of using different unit systems for speed, temperature, pressure and other items.

Depending on your personal preference, you can set these for metric, imperial, or US customary units. However, there are some important differences between how the units work on the app and the handheld display on the COMPUSHIFT Sport and COMPUSHIFT Pro.

Setting Units on the CS Setup App

The CS Setup app has unit settings that are help of the app itself, not in the COMPUSHIFT controller. The COMPUSHIFT controller always uses metric units internally and communicates to the app using metric units as well. The app, in turn, translates units if needed before displaying them. The app will always use the unit system settings you have selected, regardless of which COMPUSHIFT controller you connect to.

To set the units in the app, do the following:

  1. Press the menu button on the app menu bar to open the side menu.

  2. Select the “Settings” option from the menu.


  3. Make a selection on the “Unit System” menu based on your region:

  4. Or set the unit system for each different kind of measurement (pressure, speed, temperature, etc)

Choosing an item on the “Unit System” setting will override the unit system for the measurement below it.

This allows you to pick a set of defaults, like “US” units to start, then customize individual measurements as needed.

Setting Units on the COMPUSHIFT Display

Unlike the setup app, the COMPUSHIFT Display uses unit settings that are bound to the controller itself. This means that you can set the units on the display one way, and set the units on your app a different way. In fact, you can actually set the units for the display using the CS Setup app. Here’s how to set the units on the display…

From the CS Setup App

  1. Start at the home screen.

  2. From the home screen, select the “Display Setup” menu.

  3. From “Display Setup”, select the “Measurement Units” menu.

  4. Choose units as needed on the “Measurement Units” menu.

From the COMPUSHIFT Display

The process on the COMPUSHIFT Display is the similar to the app.

  1. Use the lower left arrow button to navigate to the top of the menu structure.

  2. Use the left and down arrows to navigate to the “Display Setup” menu. Press the center button to enter the menu.

  3. Use the left and down arrows to navigate to the “Measurement Units” menu. Press the center button to enter the menu.

  4. Use the left and down arrows to select the measurement you wish to change. Press the center button to enter the menu.

  5. Use the up and down arrows to change the units. Press the center button to select the unit of choice.
