Hello from Denmark.

When zooming in from 100K 1nm to 50k the distance indicator rightly doubles, but the readout says 1800 m
Should that not be 0,5 nm or 920 m  ? 

Zooming out, the same thing happens at 250K the distance says 4 nm ??

The distance indicator has to fit onscreen. Obviously, it couldn't show 10nm when you're at 5k scale (for example). Its only purpose is to show you how long a given distance is on the map.

Hi Tim
Thanks for your promt reply,
I tried to describe that when zooming from 100000 resolution to 50000 the distance goes from 1nm to 1800 meters which is almost the same (1nm equal 1852 meters) Sorry to be unclear, should it not be 1/2 NM or abt 90p0 m ? ( or am i misunderstanding the layout ?

Hi Peter,
i guess it’s intentional, because units for cross country distances are NM and runway lengths are meter...

When you get to small distances, SkyDemon simply switches to metres for that reading.

Ahh. now it makes sense, I had overlooked, that when you change to meters from 1nm to 1800m the distance indicator doubles, sorry i missed that very important bit.
Clever, thanks for your assistance.
