MFD Sclae Indicator2

Recommended Posts

Re-post--- I think it was hung up again

 

Hi Dave,

 

On the MFD when you click on the + or the - buttons, or use the mouse roller button to change the scale (zoom in or out) the Scale value in lower left of the display doesn't always show the correct value, for example the 25 NM, and 100 NM Scale values are repeated, some are missing like the 500 NM

 

Thanks,

Mark

I've added a 500NM scale at one of the zoom levels.  It was missing.

Dave,

 

there are missed more than that scale. Better to say that scale and zoom level doesn't match each over.

If you scroll trough the zoom levels on every step you get an higher/lower resolution but the indicated scale factor are unchanged.

I get these steps:

1000

250 (probably 500)

250

100

100 (probably 50)

25

10

5

5 (probably 2.5)

1

 

So only the "label" is wrong.

Notice that the length of the line changes.  So on one zoom level, 100NM = 1.5 inches and on another it may be 0.75 inches.  The line length is the key.

Hi Dave,

 

I see the scale line length changing, and understand how it works, thanks for the update, and adding 500nm
