Setting Rx range

Hello folks, When setting the max range for the receiver, I note the figure is in Kilometres, and there's no option at all for say Nautical Miles. Surely since this is aviation then the standard system of measurement should at least be an available option? If I am wrong about that then, please, by a...

What is going wrong with this?

I just got treated to this; see the route info at the bottom, use the rest to realise this simply can not be right!

Re: list - mlat sorting does not work

Agreed, and as I posted a little while back. Had not seen your post at the time.

Hope it gets remedied.

Re: How VRS displays aircraft icons

I'd really appreciate some time taken to allow VRS to know how to show glider types correctly. They are beautiful to see and watch, but not so much when they are represented by a generic icon. ;) They do seem to be a somewhat special case as there really are so many variants, and all valid as far as...

Re: .out and .wpt file support?

OK, it can at first seem to be a right faff, to make them, but I like being able to make a list of airfields I want to see! I'm seldom happier than to see my list show up on the map as I compile and add to it. It makes your map truly yours, and that counts for a lot. It would be nice if we could def...

Re: Missing report criteria?

No. You can filter by airport, which does what you suggest, but that only works for the live aircraft. I'll add an Airport criteria to the list of things to do. Thank you, there may be others I noticed, but now forgot about. I'll see if I can recall them over time. Can't promise because I'm old and...

Re: Map range circles

It's because the earth is a sphere and Google Maps is showing you a 2D rectangle, so the sphere needs to be projected onto the rectangle. You can read up on the specific projection they're using here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Mercator If you follow the links on there through to the discuss...

Re: Map range circles

Yes, that's it, and thanks for posting the image, I can't do hotlinked images at the moment! If it is earth curve then the viewing point probably isn't above the site location presumably. That in itself seems a bit odd at first glance. I'll maybe go play in google earth and see how the accuracy hold...

Map range circles

Hello folks, I noticed something slightly odd: set map circles to the max of 9, then make the circles 100 nm apart. Zoom out until you can see the circles entirely. Notice that circles to the south are closer together than those to the north. I'm sure there must be all sorts of geographic arguments ...

Re: Polar Plot - I'm confused

It's now lost at least two more that I know of. More than 300 NM. I set the RX max to 999 Kilometres. This reset my range map, without any warning it would do that! It's leaking A/C plots like a sieve, failing to plot in significant numbers. In the latest example, I've just watched it fail to plot f...
