Apologies if this has been raised before - tried searching without success.

I'm running PilotAware via Skydemon and have issues seeing the plotted aircraft on the screen amongst the other chart data.  My screen is either on my knee pad or on the instrument panel in an Autogyro.  I was wondering of we could have an option to increase the size of the PilotAware plotted aircraft in Skydemon and its altitude difference data (much like our own aircraft icon) or change its colour so it is more obvious and stands out in relation to the chart being plotted.  In short, I need a way of increasing the contrast between the PAW aircraft and chart.

Thanks,

H

There isn't a setting for changing the size or colour, though the size is proportional to the size of your own aircraft. The colour only changes if and when the other aircraft become close to you or become a threat.

Please note that the display of other aircraft on the map is NOT designed to aid collision avoidance. We have a dedicated traffic radar instrument for that, shown permanently in the bottom right corner of the screen on tablets and as an optional full-screen display on phones. In addition, SkyDemon is constantly monitoring the trajectories of other aircraft to see whether they present a threat and will show a big warning if a proximity alert is necessary.
