Unit of travelTime and length of RouteLeg
nokia.maps.routing.RouteLeg () has two properties :- travelTime and length....

I want to know the unit in which length returns value (in meters or in foots.....?)
I want to know the unit in which travelTime returns value (in seconds or in minutes....?)

I tried to find
routing.Route.legs[0].travelTime for half kilometer on map.....
and I got 32 value for travelTime...

for routing.Route.legs[0].length i got 491
I dont know the unit of length or travelTime...!

I know travelTime & length depends on transport mode,traffic mode.....

Metres, it is the only unit which makes sense for convertions - your 1/2 km route is actually 7 metres short of 0.5 km - you can convert to imperial units as shown:

[CODE]function calculateDistance(distance){
if (metricMeasurements){
if (distance < 1000){
return "" + maneuver.length + " m.";
} else {
return "" + Math.floor(distance/100)/10 + " km.";
}
} else {
if (distance < 1610){
return "" + Math.floor(distance/1.0936) + " yards";
} else {
return "" + Math.floor(distance/160.934)/10 + " miles";
}
}
}[/CODE]

Seconds, again the smallest unit is used to enable simple convertions - 497 metres in 32 seconds is about 50km/h or 30mph

Re: Unit of travelTime and length of RouteLeg
sorry for asking such a silly question... but i wanted to confirm because, in google map it shows 7 minutes to travel 5 km route and in Nokia maps it shows 300 seconds to travel that 5 km route... considering traffic mode "enabled" in mode...
Thanks for supporting
