Whats a click??.

As in distance in Vietnam war movies. Not PC but click is a PC word :o)

Bothered me for ages and just run a quick search, LOTS say its a kilometre (why would Americans use KM) and some say A click is 1000 meters or a grid square on
the map. NOT 1000 meters in land as hill / mountains etc are not true
to distance on a map.

So a double click is 2Km, a left click is a kilometer to the west and a right click is a kilometer to the east :O)

They use click for 1 kilometer (a throwback to the occupation in Europeafter WWII)

The amercians use km/h for vehicle speeds ;-)

A click is 1km.
