Calibrating in kilometers

2 comments

Hi,

I own a BR6 and am going to be doing my first rally abroad. Can you tell me how I would calibrate my meter in kilometers.

 

Thanks,

Roger

Hi,

 

Calibration in Kilometers is just as easy as calibrating in Miles.

  • First of all you need a known measured distance, say 4.56Km

  • Enter 456 into your calibration push-wheel switches on the front of your International

  • Draw up at the start of the measured distance and zero both Displays

  • Drive your measured distance and exactly on the end of the measured distance note down the readings in the Distance Displays (they should both match) i.e. 06.78

  • Enter what was shown on the Display into the Push-Wheel Switches ignoring the decimal point i.e 678

  • Now re-drive that measured distance a couple of times and check you get exactly 04.56 on both displays consistently.

If you already have a very accurate calibration distance in Miles, you can multiply your calibration figure by 1.6093, enter your new figure and proceed to the re-driving stage of the above instructions.

 

If you were going from Kilometers to Miles you would divide your current calibration figure by 1.6093, enter your new figure and proceed to the re-driving stage of the above instructions.

Also you can do minor calibration alterations in the following way:

 

MINOR CORRECTIONS:

If the distance reading is too HIGH - INCREASE the calibration figures

If the distance reading is too LOW - DECREASE the calibration figures
