The main view is a map view with a top status layer and a bottom status layer and a standard command button menu on the very bottom.

The top status layer shows configurable values. The bottom status layer shows time of last fix, accuracy of last fix, current altitude (as reported from GPS), current elevation of ground (based on NASA data), current speed (as reported from GPS), current heading (as reported from GPS), track ID (if tracking is active) and current grid size of the displayed map.

There are 2 other views which you can access by swiping left or right on the touch area (also call forward and backward gesture).

The command button menu on the bottom gives you access to zoom in, map menu (tap on the current zoom number), zoom out, center and follow position, send current position or current track and tracking switch.

From the map menu you can access search, targets, tracks and the dashboard view which you also can access by forward gesture.
