A couple of UI/mapping questions:

1) Quite a few UK airfields are depicted on the map with two concentric rings - one solid and one dashed, what is the distinction between the two rings... I don't get it.

2) when measuring distances by multi-touching the screen would it be better if the ruler snapped to the nearest feature... Be it a town or airfield etc. I think this would be more useful/precise when diverting or even route planning.

Cheers Steve.

The solid vs dashed circles do not have a seperate meaning; they are both part of the same outline style. I believe it is used to indicate an ASR (Aerial Sports and Recreation area).

@rob-weijers

Just a view on this then - wouldn't it be better to use one circular ring and colour code it, rather than put two rings of clutter on the map. Keep up the good work with EV4... As a SkyDemon user it is looking more and more tempting to me.
