This page provides more detailed descriptions about the settings available in the app Settings screen.

Altitude: Flight Levels – Display of Altitude reminders as Flight Level above 18,000 feet
Void Time Color – Color of Clearance Void Time window
EFC Time Color – Color of Expect Further Clearance window
Inbound Leg Color – Color of Inbound Leg timer window
Outbound Leg Color – Color of Outbound Leg timer window
Approach Timer Color – Color of Approach Timer window
Approach Speeds – Sets the five speeds available on the Approach Timer to either US (60-90-120-150-180 kts) or Canada speeds (70-90-110-130-150 kts) to match the speed options on approach plates
User Defined Timers – Edit the Custom Timers. Add or Delete a custom timer. Change the display order. Change timer name. Convert Duration timer to Countdown timer. Set Countdown timer to repeat (and number of cycles) or change countdown time. Change colors.
Initial Duration Color – Default color of newly created Custom timer that counts up
Initial Countdown Color – Default color of newly created Custom timer that counts down
Show Zero on Expiration – Expired Countdown timer shows zero when it expires, or begins to count up to show how long ago the timer expired.
Times to 1/100th – Shows Custom timer values to 1/100th of a second and increases timer refresh rate to 100 times per second. May reduce battery life due to increased CPU cycles from higher refresh rate. This 100 hz refresh rate is only valid if Custom Timer screen is the active screen visible on the device and this setting is on. Switch this setting off or go to another screen to reduce the refresh rate and maintain better battery life.
Order By Active Status – Custom timers actively running are moved to top of the list to group and easily tell you which timers are currently running.
Repeating Cycle Alerts – Controls whether in-app popups or local notifications are shown for the intermediate cycle alarms of repeating timers. The alarm for the very last cycle and end of the overall timer still fires even if this setting is Off. Particularly handy if you change the notification style to Alerts and have to manually dismiss each notification. As an example, if you have a repeating timer that cycles 10 times, having this setting On will show alerts for all 10 alarms, where a setting of Off will only provide an alert (popup or notification) for the 10th and final alarm.
Com Reminder – Color of Com Frequency reminder data entry window on Flight Info screen

Approach Distance to MAP – Color of FAF to MAP distance data entry window on IFR Timers screen
Alarm Sound – Allows alarm sounds if device mute switch is off
Reduced Refresh Mode – If on, data will be refreshed no more than 4 times per second in an effort to reduce CPU usage and possible heat buildup, and preserve battery life. If off, data may be refreshed as often as 20 times per second to provide a more responsive experience (exception: Custom Timer screen with “Times to 1/100th” setting on). Note: This setting and the “Times to 1/100th” setting only affect the app (and therefore battery life) when it is actively running and visible to the user. This app does not run timers or do screen or data refreshes in the background.

Opacity – Change the opacity of text and borders (not including times).
Use Solid Icons – Set app icons to solid or hollow
Reset Icon Colors – Sets colors of tab bar and icons to default. App installs with white option (white tab bar, blue normal icons, red selected icon). Other option is blue tab bar with white normal icons and red selected icon.
Bar Color – Allows user to change tab bar from default white or blue. Icon colors will be selected from the segmented controls that will become enabled.
Icon Color (selected) – Select one of three colors to set the selected icon color. Colors will change depending on the tab bar color chosen by the user. Selected icon color may not be the same as the “other”/normal icon color. Control will be disabled if using default color scheme.
Icon Color (other) – Select one of five colors to set the normal icon color. Colors other than black and white will change depending on the tab bar color chosen by the user. Color may not be the same as the selected icon color. Control will be disabled if using default color scheme.
Settings Color – Changes the color of settings controls from the default red. Also takes the app out of the default color scheme, so may be necessary to change the Bar Color and Icon Colors.
