I flight planned from Lymington to Goodwood yesterday and the approach feather displayed was for 06 whilst the runway in use was 32. Can the 06 default be changed live after receiving the runway in use from ATC?

Yes. The feathers are initially displayed to align most closely with your direction of arrival, but this is changeable by using the ‘Approach Tools’ functionality. There is a very clear explanation of how it all works in the User Guide.

Also, even if you do nothing, once you're more closely aligned to a different runway, SkyDemon will change its mind about your likely approach (unless you explicitly nominate a runway).
