Display of airspaces selected in the database

Postby RogerF » 02 Sep 2018, 13:54

Here is a suggestion to facilitate the search of airspaces on the map:

- Current behaviour:
=> When an airport, VOR, NDB,... is selected in the database, for example using Neareast > Airports, a "short press" on an item allows to program a navigation to that point.
A long press displays a menu, including a Tools button, which in turn allows to show the airport at the map centre.
=> When an airspace is selected, a "short press" has no effect.

- Suggestions 1:
=> Implement a "short press" on an airspace item to display it on the map:
- The idea would be that his has the same effect as tapping the border of the airspace: display of a popup windows with the airspace details + highlight the airspace in yellow.
- Ideally, the map should center on the airspace and zoom out if needed to show it completely, based on the min/max lat/long of the airspace area.
- This would facilitate the identification of the airspace on the map.

- Suggestion 2:
=> Implement a button "Highlight" available with a "long tap" on an airspace item, additionally to the existing buttons "Edit, VHFs, Export, Delete"
- The idea would be that this has the same effect for a short tap in suggestion 1 above.
- However, the airspace would remain permanently highlighted until the user makes a "short press" on the popup window with the airspace details.
- This would allow for keeping focus on a particular airspace to avoid entering (or exiting) it inadvertently.

Thank you in advance for considering this proposal, and of course feel free to ask for clarifications.

Hi Petr,
Any reaction to these suggestions made last year?
When flying a glider in a sport area, the capability to permanently visualise the reserved area to make sure to stay inside is very important.
Beyond the legal aspect, even a small deviation outside the area makes the flight unusable for sport challenges.

I hope next upgrade - possible tap at airspace at the airspaces list - Display at the centre of map.
