Skydemon offers an interesting feature that allows you to easily report your position to an air trafic controller.
For example : 5 NM SW from Champignac en Cambrousse.
Unfortunately, it appears that very small villages are most often provided by that feature. I was in such a situation yesterday and the controller from Paris Info asked me to provide a location relative to a know air point like an airfield or a VOR instead of a small village he never heard about before.
Is there is way to improve this ?

In flight just click on any point on the map, in the blue header of the pop-up you will get distance/radial to the point you clicked. Just choose an appropriate point to click (I prefer to use airports).

For example on the picture I am 12NM E of Nangis Les Loges Aerodrome.

if you 'long press' on the reference point requested by ATC. the 'What's here' pop-up shows your distance, cardinal direction (N, NE, SW etc), time and bearing to/from that feature.

Thanks for this workaround ! This is exactly what I was looking for :-)
