SkyDemon has always offered an in-flight timer feature, where you can set up your own timers which will periodically remind you to do something during your flight. This is great for such things as remembering to check the engine temperatures and pressures.
From time to time we are asked if we could implement distance-based alerts too. The most common request is to pop up an alert when you pass a waypoint, or get within a certain radius of something. Have you ever wanted this, and if so, could you comment below, telling us exactly how you'd like to see it work?
For instance, would you expect such an alert to be saved along with a particular planned route, or to work for all routes? Would you expect it to keep popping up every time you got close, even during the same flight? Or maybe you think this is a feature not worth adding to the software. As always, we'd love your feedback.
