Meaning of value in top right corner

In the top right corner of the attached image, there is a measurement reading 113.1m. I didn't see a mention of this value in the user manual. What does it mean?

    I have found that mine is a long way off the height above sea level.

    How can I do the altimeter calibration to fix this?

    If its purpose is relative height then you can use the difference as you suggest.

    yes altimeter ... and yes it can be calibratet
    if i set mine to actual height on ground ... and lift it up to ceiling the difference is about 2 m (so it is sensitive and accurate)
    reason is ... if you climb a tower you know how long a rope is needed to pull up tools :-)
    (and you can calculate the time and speed if you fall down hi hi)
    allways stay safe with 2 safety lines ... same for the analyzer
    do not count on shoulder strap alone when on a tower and add another rope to analyzer! ... and secure it to a tower leg (no ... a cable tie is not safe!!)
    (i would do it if i had to climb a tower and work there on antennas etc.)

    Hi Andy,
    I think it is the altimeter.
    Not sure about accuracy as mine is showing -27.8m !!
    Perhaps it can be calibrated.

    By the way, I´ve tried, during last weekend, the "programming mode" unsuccessfully.
    I used SecureCRT and Ethernet, but not success so far.

    Regards, Maximo.
