I would like to decorrelate the language and formats/units/etc.

Indeed, I am French, live in France and prefer to use the french number/date format. However as with everything in high tech, I can't stand to get the texts in french, because I don't like the way most things get translated, so I put the english version.

The result of this is that I just turned on the maps app, and it shows me distances in yards and miles, and I don't have any clue of the distance this might represent.

Thus, I would like to be able to have my UI in english but still get my french formatting.

To make my question less broad: is there any way to get a decent unit system in the maps application?

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if this was a duplicate, but I wasn't able to find it :/
