So I was thinking about this and had an idea. instead of the map being a map it could be a navigation display found like the ones in cockpits. Like this.
This would be more realistic. And the UI would be simple. The settings button we have near the map would have all the things we want to turn on like weatger, terrain, traffic etc. And the zoom buttons could be used To zoom out and in like 10, 20,30,40 and flight plan mode.
But to make planning easier when you go on the map page. You can plan your route then when you go back it would just show The navigation display.
As I have mentioned before this is the next step to realism. Hope you enjoyed the idea.
P.s there is a topic discussing the navigation display but it’s to make it a compass view. This is to actually replace the current map with the navigation display.
