    What does the little icon found in the bottom right corner of the map,when the map is not the main view, do? When the map is enlarged the icon is low on the right side just above the small camera view window. The icon is a small rectangle that is 2/3 black and 1/3 white. I click it and it momentarily turns blue but nothing seems to happen. Thanks guys. Hope all doing updates are having good luck. I'll be waiting a couple days and reading posts here.

    As you fly around, the map shows your flight path as a white trail. That icon erases that trail.

    So you can forget where you have been?? :confused:
    Don't really see the benefit. Can you restore it, after disabling it, or does it really erase it permanently during the rest of the flight?

    I updated to Version 1.5 on my P3 A. All seems to work but a new icon has appeared, looks like this.

    It seems harmless and comes and goes. Sometimes if you slide it up and down the screen, then the camera exposure alters.
    Anyone know what its about?

    That's the spot metering feature.
