Skydemon Windows Mapping - Routes - Helicoper Routes

What is the effect of marking/unmarking Mapping - Routes - Helicoper Routes?
At LSGS the waypoints for helicopters are switched on/off but not the routes.
Is that the intended use? If not, you might re-think the wording "Helicoper Routes". Thank you.

I would prefere an effect on waypoints and on routes.

Everything in your screenshot is an aerodrome arrival/departure route. They are not enroute helicopter routes, so they are unaffected by the mapping switch for helicopter routes.

The main mapping switch is there so that people who don't fly helicopters do not see helicopter routes that they have no use for. It would be unsafe for that switch to also turn off aerodrome helicopter routes because you definitely need to know the routes other traffic can and will be using to approach the same aerodrome as you are.
