Done Spot Elevations on the map
display spot elevations
I definitely agree that spot terrain heights should either be shown on the map or be able to be shown by pressing a button. So important in Mountainous or Hilly areas.
coming back from Venice today I chose waypoints on the direct line between LIPV and EDRY and used them for the FPL.
In the air I found out that I would have to overfly the highest peaks - which I didn't. At FL110 with some ups and downs due to Foehn I felt better flying the valleys.
Spot hights would have helped filing the FPL - I admit I did not carry paper maps.
(2 Dynons, one ipad, one Galaxy tablet and one iphone should be enough redundancy)
In flight artificial terrain did the job well - but I had to deviate from the planned track.
- > Please include the spot heights!
Spot elevations are definitely going to be implemented, but I also would like to point out the currently already existing feature called “valley elevation”. This feature is in layers->terrain, and colours the map using red/yellow as if you are flying on the selected altitude. For example having the Valley reference elevation set to 8500ft (my plane and I don’t make it higher ;-)) the route from LIPV to EDRY looks like this :
until spot elevations are implemented this might be helpful maybe.
thanks for the hint.
I will use artificial terrain - with this feature spot heights are not really a must anymore.
