Round Down Distance?

Recommended Posts

Hello Simon.

Is there any way of rounding down the Distance from the Airport figure? Having that precision may be useful in the distance from the User plane but I don't think it is at the Airport.Three decimal points seems to be a bit specific. When the minus sign comes up on the Board it looks really odd. Maybe a tick box in the Configuration?

By the way: I use a 32 inch screen in the large work area behind my closed-in B737 cockpit for visitors and another 19 inch viewable outside my right window. Looks great!

Thanks again.

Aussie.

As I recall the 3 decimal places where simply to use up the space in the column enfoced by the width of the heading.  There's already an option in settings for showing fewer (or more!) decimal places, I imagine that could be rounded with way as well.  That said, it's effectively rounded down when you reduce the number of places as you just truncate decimal part.

The intention was to differentiate between "distance to from airport", "distance to from runway threshold" and "distance to from parking".  The minus indicates its one of the latter two in effect.  Maybe an additional column display which one it is might help clarify?

Sounds like a great setup, send a picture some time!
