Default Waypoint Elevation bug

Waypoint elevation doesn't match what is entered.

To reproduce:

Have an active waypoint, select a waypoint on the EHSD and select 'Data'. Select ODU option 3 ('ELEV'). On the UFC enter 10000 and select 'ENT'. Notice ELEV on the EHSD shows 3047 ft.

Additionally I'm not sure if this is meant to happen, but the waypoint target on the HUD does not move to the correct altitude.

10000 ft equals 3047 m. Does the system probably do an automatic conversion?

Possibly, but it still displays it as being in feet on the EHSD.

You’re right, according to the NFM-000 the elevation is solely in feet. This looks like an unwanted internal feet to meter conversion then.
