Glide distance in planning mode

By tmn_pilot - 9/3/2021 1:38:19 PM

Hi All

I've been using SD for some years now, and I like it a lot.

However I miss the possibility of seeing the glide distance in planning mode. As I live in at country with a lot of water I often need to zigzag my route to stay in gliding distance of solid ground. To do that I use rulers and calculator to lay out the route.
It would be so much easier if it was possible to "turn" on glide distance along the route in planning mode.

Best regards

Had you thought of using simulator mode to check the bits you are unsure of?

Whichever way you do it, wind on the day will influence the result.
