The proper English and International (as adopted by Bureau of Weights and Measures) spelling of the word "kilometre" is "kilometre" and not "kilometer" --- the latter is an Americanism and ought to be avoided. Here is the link to WikiPedia which explains this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilometre

Actually, since the speed of wind is shown in "km/h" it makes sense to abbreviate the unit of visibility to "km" as well. If you use "km" and also switch the time to 24 hour default (as per #51 ) then the total width of the menu will be reduced, as a bonus :)
