Area Calculations

I have a question for SARTopo users. This is regarding area calculations of an area assignment. I have noticed that the area calculated within the boundaries, is truncating the calculation to whole acres with no decimals. I thought in the past it did calculate to one decimal place. When I switch in the configuration to mixed units it calculates a drawn area to 0.02 sq Km and 4 acres but if I convert sq Km to acres it equals 4.94 acres and not 4. Is there something I need to change in the configuration ?

    The acreage calculation rounds to whole acres as of right now (it may truncate, I'll have to double check). We've received other requests to show up to two decimal places and we'll fix that in a few weeks after the final app release. Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks. Do you notify users when there is an upgrade so we can download it ? I use the Professional version.

    For the app updates are through the Android and iOS stores. For the web, small improvements don’t typically have an announcement but larger improvements we post on the blog and facebook.
