    Please be forgiving of this is well documented.. (But using any search inc "guides" returns A LOT of "other" guides)

    Ok, so I've noticed this icon on the left of the map view (within camera view).. what is it please?

    Hi msinger,

    I'm referring to the "hand" icon between the take-off & return to home icons

    It's just a tool to draw on top of the map.

    Does it actually serve any purpose?

    I've already thought of some very immature & crude routes I can "design".. Just so I can see them appear like an 'etch a sketch' on the flight record when playing it back!
