 +===== General Control =====
 +
 +Keep the left mouse button pressed to scroll around on the map. Of course, also the corresponding touch gesture is supported.

 +Below that you see the current visibility range. If the visibility unit is set to meters (which is the default) in the [[features:​settings#​visibility_unit|Settings]] module no unit is displayed as that is also the default for the METAR information. In case you have chosen ​different unit this unit will be displayed ​as well
 + 
 +To the right of the visibility ​information you see the outside air temperature

 ''​Measure''​ allows you to quickly measure the distance between two points on the map. After this action is activated first click on the start and then on the end point. Now the distance between these two points together with the true heading from the first to the second point is displayed. ''​Measure''​ allows you to quickly measure the distance between two points on the map.
