Hi u2builder.
This is not the right thread for your question, it is for HOW TO USE altimeter with 3rd parties devices.
Anyway, your question is answered very well in the manual. What are the numbers and how it works.

The altimeter will never show your current altitude, but the maximum altitude reached in last flight, even you restart the sensor it will show max altitude reached from last flight, and will start reading new max altitude only if the altitude where altimeter was restarted and current altitude of altimeter is greater that 18feet.

The altimeter altitude reading can drift depending on many factors, so it is normal that you see 587 instead of 700 you claimed. (check some posts backs where I had the same question).
