Phi map distance unit?

Is there a short code to change PHI Map from miles to Nautical Miles. Additional resources like Skyvector flight planner uses NM as do most of the planes I fly. It would be nice to have the PHI Map the same.

is it not already using NM? it may say "miles" but my understanding was that it was actually "nautical miles"... i may very well be wrong, though...

"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
