I know it's early for feature requests, but I didn't see this feature during the webinar this morning. Curious if it's in the product, or if you'd be willing to jot it down as a request.

When I'm flying an instrument approach, once I get my HSI needle centered I'll typically shift my scan to focus heavily on making sure TRK and DTK remain identical, which would mean my needle will stay centered. G1000/Perspective show the TRK and DTK in nice large digits at the top of the PFD, easy to scan. It kinda looks like on Vantage, the best we'll be able to do is have small text in an MFD datablock?

At this point, it's not designed to show both of those as you suggested.  We'll consider it.

I was wondering if the graphics and typography  of Vantage are already the final version – because I hope they are not. Compared to Entegra the fonts are too small in many places and not in line. The small texts are all over the place and not organized nicely. If I was Avidyne I would let a good graphics designer and a typography specialist improve the graphics.
