Hi
‌I'am using latest SD with Stratux as FLARM device on an iPad mini and can see all traffic around me. But the icons of the planes are in white and a little bit too small. It would be nice to have the possibility to change these settings like the icon of the chosen icon for the type of aircraft itself.

‌Thanks you in advance.

‌Kind regards

‌Stefan

I will move this to the suggestions forum to see if others think it's a good idea to be able to change the size of the icons used for other traffic.

I'd like the option to have TCAS-like symbols and text instead of the little images which can be hard to spot against the chart. Another option might be an insert traffic display a bit like the HSI when seated on-screen.

I fully support Stefan's suggestion. At minimum I would welcome the possibility to change size and color of the traffic. I haven't seen any pure Mode S traffic yet (I just recently changed my TRX-2000 settings to also transmit non-directional traffic via Air Connect to SD) and wonder how this currently implemented (is it like the white circle in Stefan's screenshot?). Therefore an HSI like traffic display may be useful as as an option, displaying non directional traffic also as a circle.

‌These suggestions anyway depend on the traffic detection device and whether it has it's own display or not.

I also think, that it‘s important to change the color and size of traffic. Please make it possible.

Very good Idea!!!
What about changing color and size depending on the distance to the target, if it is not to much work to code it?

Yes, I second Peer’s idea.

And Tim, please let us customise the script near the white circle (relative altitude). When I was flying yesterday I found myself head down in the cockpit searching for the numbers near the circle. Sometimes there is no chance seeing it while the circle increases and decreases its diameter every 1-2 seconds.

Thank you.

I am in principle fine with current sizes. As long as a target is not a threat, I really don't want it to clutter the map. When it comes into eyeball reach I want to get it on the map and change color and yes, threats could be a bit bigger on some of the tablets (but definitely not at all).

Would love to be able to configure it to be similar/the same as TCAS type indicators ie hollow/filled white diamonds, yellow circles and red squares depending on relative distance/altitude.
