Viewing detail in flight profile

Post by pazzo » Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:28 pm

I like the looks of the flight profile but have no idea of what all of the details mean ... they are illegible and there's no way to zoom in, I don't think.

... any ideas how I can know what the data provide?

the two key components are:
- your flight path, presented with a horizontal red line
- the terrain profile, painted as mountains/seas below

Additionally, white pattern show clouds that you will encounter, and one-side-dashed horizontal lines near waypoints are vertical boundaries of airways.

hope this helps
