Hi all,

I've enquired of the locals at the airfield as well as had a search for solutions to this but to no avail.

The short story is that I recently upgraded my phone from a Sony Xperia compact to an Xperia XZ1. Now the new phone has a larger screen so I wasn't expecting any resolution issues, but the SkyDemon icon for the menu obscures the ground speed indication as per this screen shot:


I can't find anything in the application configuration allowing me to reduce the screen resolution, nor in Android itself. SkyDemon appears to be the only app I use which is affected. It's kind of frustrating as ground speed is something I'm normally always keeping an eye on.

Would anyone have any suggestions as to how to resolve this please?

Many thanks,

Darren

This is something that I noticed aswell when upgrading from my old Huawei device to a new Nokia device. The new device has a larger screen and a higher resolution. However, UI elements are drawn bigger, so parts of the UI are obstructed. Would be nice if I was able to reduce the font size slightly to fix that.

You can choose the instrument size in the options. This should fix this.

Or you might consider not attempting to show so many instruments. If your screen isn't big enough to show all the instruments, then showing fewer of them will ensure it doesn't become too cluttered.

I have/had this problem with my Samsung S8 smartphone.
I only display four "instruments" on my phone.

Thanks all for the suggestions. Losing an instrument does help, though I'd prefer to keep them all. I had exactly the same instruments active on my old Sony which had a smaller screen without the Skydemon logo menu button obscuring anything (that button was further down the screen).

Another thing that helped is that I noticed that I can change the instrument text size within a range or -0.8 to +1.4 with the lower end of the range almost making the instruments visible. Perhaps in a future release it might be possible to extend that range?

Cheers
