Hi there
When planning a route in some mountainous areas, the terrain have 2 different shades of green. What does they mean?

Dark green is direct in front of you while the lighter green area is either left or right from your route within a certain range (cannot remember the definition of this range).

Thanks.
That makes sense Smile

I guess the definition of the range would be in: Setup>Planning Options>Safety Margins under Minimum Safe Altitudes.

Yes, that is correct. The dark green is the terrain directly under your flightpath.
