I use a phone for traffic awareness connected to a PilotAware.  I set the phone to the traffic screen and it make it easy to spot stuff that comes in range.  However it doesn't show bearingless target at all.  Any chance of just having the detected aircraft ID colour coded somewhere on the screen with relative altitude?  It would make it a lot easier to decide whether an altitude change would help separation.  I know I can get the info from the ring drawn around my aircraft on my tablet display but it can be difficult making out the relative altitude against the map background and my aircraft trajectory line

Thanks

Your comment about difficulty in reading the relative altitude on the normal display is something that I have noticed. Its the most important info and it is sometimes impossible to read because of clutter. I pointed this out on the stand at the LAA event and I did not have any difficulty proving the point on a live display.

Could you perhaps post a screenshot here illustrating a situation you believe is hard to read?
