Hi Alex,

Regarding crab angle in compass rose :

In the picture below you see that the track/course to reach next waypoint from current position is 256º
Heading needed to reach 256º is roughly 301º .
Basically, you find this crab angle by trial and error. Look at the track line and centre it on the desired track and the result is your heading.

Question:
Can you add the calculated crab angle (298º) in the window "Progress"? It makes things easier. It prevents me from doing that arithmetic by myself. (The correct aircraft heading is a result from this arithmetic = 256º+42º=298º)

Perhaps you find room on the compass rose to display the crab angle also. I don't really know if this is doable or necessary. Perhaps it is more disturbing than advantages.

Related to #285
Will add the crab angle to the progress window and compass rose too (probably later).
Thank you for the example and clear description.

Added crab angle to aircraft progress and compass rose. Also showing course to next WP in compass rose.
Additionally added a "more/less" switch to the progress display to hide less important values.
