I don’t think it will save it and metric is the default. Your controller does allow you to select and save your choice of measuring systems and that is what matters the most.
The only place left in the world that doesn’t use metric is the USA. I grew up learning to use both so it is not too much of a bother. I guess the only place I have difficulty with metric is on the golf course. When I hit a stray shot I just naturally say four. Yelling 1.2 just doesn’t have the same effect.
