    Thank You. Everything seems to be perfect now, & I'm glad to get rid of the other cluttering apps :) 5/5

    Thank you for implementing my delta meter request, I appreciate d effort. Only 1 small thing. The delta meter needs its own +zoomup -zoomdown button, i can't get it to the size i want without compromising the size of the Speedometer because both feature uses the same -+Zoom. can you sort that out for me? thanks. You do good work, the sim community appreciates :)

      I saw that too, I'm just delayed this for a future update : to find a good manner to implement it. Don't know if I'll make a different setting window OR a switch to act on different app window.

    wow, you just keep improving & improving, thanks. ps. Is there any way to add a small side-bar to the HUD showing LAPS & a DELTA meter? that way i only need to use the 1 app, losing the clutter of the others i use.
